They are 650mm diameter, so you are quite correct they are huge.

Nauti;

If you get a chance, can you post a pic from behind the boat? I'm trying to understand how they did the transom thing on there.

Looks like fun.

Thanks;

Sorry mate, I missed that, I can't have Etec's on my new rib as Parker are purely Mercruiser dealers. So going for Opti's this time round.
