ID:	102263I think being close to the water makes you appreciate the speed but they were really good fun. This was our S400 with similar remotes and steering. If you PM me I will let you know where I saw some remotes which may be for sale.

Is that Grimsby dock in the background

Darren you were saying you may up the power of the Honda, well if my memory serves me correctly and it may not so check it out but I think the weight of the 10, 15 and 20hp are almost the same weight at 45k or there abouts so by getting the 20hp you won't be having to handle extra weight on and off the boat. Certainly worth looking at.

Darren,

Firslly Welcome to Ribnet!

I have also just bought one of these for days when the rib is just too big!

One thing I would say about your seagull - I had a similar problem with a 1970-ish Johnson 2HP - namely the open cowl & the spray from the main engine's leg being dragged through the water don't make for a happy spark! - These engines were not designed for that sort of life!

Simple answer - a plastic bag & a bit of string! (and a couple of big rubber bands to stop it flapping in the breeze!)


I guess Lincoln could be too far south for a weekend jaunt, but have you seen Poly's S*IB cruise thread?

Hi Philpot,


You are absolutely right it is Grimsby dock tower.

Hi 9d280! thanks for your message! good point with the seagull, i will sort some kind of sealed bag for it. ive managed to make the bracket so that its (just} out of the water when raised but with it being a long shaft it sits in the water well if i need to get emergency propulsion all i do is lift the johnson up, lock it and the seagull lowers down without having to swap motors around. There is a couple of inch spare from lock to lock, so no danger of a fouled up prop or tube!
I will get some pics on here as soon as i can work out how to get them off my phone onto ribnet!
