I bought a new 50 Tohatsu two stroke in July 08 and a Merit 2 trailer but haven't had a chance to put the thing in the water yet but I'll keep you posted when I do.

Seeing this brought back a lot of memories - I drove one of these for many years - and in some VERY rough seas- they are awesome craft. I looked up my old logs and we ran with a 40HP Long Shaft - though we didnt have the problems of rigging and de-rigging the engine - it was fixed on of course. I wish you luck with her - she should give you years of pleasure.

Good Evening,

All, firstly I'd like to thank you for the above information as I have just bought one of these Ribs and being honest didn't know very much about them. Some of the above already answers my questions I had.

My Gemini Rib is 4.5m long and 2m wide, I bought it from photos and then collected it deflated the guy wasn't very forth coming with information so I was wondering if you could give me a rough estimate for the PSI to inflate it too?

Also I have to replace 4 of the A5 Valve seats, is this an easy job or is it better to replace the complete valves in a one'r? He did recommend Henshaws to get them.

Any advice you could give me would be great, I will post some pictures soon of the rib. It will carry a 40hp Evinrude S.Shaft 2 Stroke on the back of it once I am home to put it all together, many thanks. Adam

General advice is to inflate to hard enough you can barely make a dent using just ur fist. Probably 2.5psi. But take it in easy steps to get there.
