ml lifeguard 3.95 m sib

hello everybody.

since 5 month's i am the proud owner of a Lifeguard rib. the rib is the former m.o.b boat / lifeboat of the GY287 ( grimsby ) - johannes calvijn. this ship is now sailing as mv Bela under the flag of panana for a salvage company.

i'm restoring it to her original state when sea was onboard of the GY 287. so far i put new reflectors on the Original places and more of that kind of thing.

as engine do i have a very old 8 hp Yamaha outboard , when on full throttle it runs aboat 15 knots.



as far i know ml lifeguard is now Beufort rescue equipment , wich is part of the survitec group. so far i could not find a manual or factsheet.

the are a few things that i want to know , so i hope somebody knows it

- is there somebody thats have a munual of factsheet ?
- which engine was originally fitted on this rib
- what whas the standard equipment

- are the more ships fitted with this 3.95 meter rib ?

thanks in advance

Hello scubadave ,

Thanks for ur soon replay. It is nice to hear that 40 hp plossible is. I thinks 15 hp is more better in Holland :P , probely a 2 stroke outboard from mariner , not much places where It is allowed to sail fast haha.

I hope that there a some more people that have a little bit of information

Thanks , and regards ,
Matthijs

If you are going to spend a lot of time driving slowly a 4 stroke is the way to go. 2 strokes tend to load up and foul the spark plugs. They need to be run hard to clean them out. Plus they stink and pollute the waters.

hello peter ,

i have to agree with u that a 4 stroke engine in cleaner and more fuel efficient. as i am now sailing for 3 month´s onboard a dutch freiger vessel ( mv. marietje marsilla ) , as a mob boat engine we have a 25 hp 2 stroke. wich require's not much maintenance and Always works

the main reasen that i preffer a 2 stroke outboard is the reasen that the are have much more acceleration en are more easy to start in hard conditions.
the maintenance is more easy on a 2 stroke than on a 4 stroke plus a 4 stroke outboard is much more expensive.

i hope there a some people with more info
