and get the biggest pitch possible because you will have excellent cruise then and get a smaller pitch for towing toys and acceleration

uses next to no fuel, and so so so so much fun, personally i would steer clear of a bombard 340 airdeck,

consider the following
the seat or thwart, wood is better if a fuel tank sits under it

on my bombard it had the following

nice lovely yellow bag thing at the front that looked better than it was but it took up too much room, i use a small backpack that ties onto rope at front and hangs inside, perfect for phone and wallet etc and as a bag when going off from boat

if you get an inflatable thward like i had on the bombard it is like an inflatable sausage and a complete waste of room

in the bombard then you have yellow bag at front, inflatable seat, then your fuel tank, now where do you put your feet?

important considerations in a rib or sib

i have had two bombards now, ax3 and 340 airdeck, wont look back now i have a quicksilver

no idea of speed on mine as dont have speedo or a gps on it but it is faster than every other sib i have come across with 15 and similar length, i know cos i alway race em. my 5 year old son insists on it.......but as mentioned below it is very fast for what it is, especially with coarse pitch prop as these little things can take that easy as they are lighter than a cheese puff.

cadet 340 will probably do around 28 mph
http://www.outboards-direct.co.uk/aw...sp?vid=6&rip=7
the engine is probably around 15-1700 new so the package seems cheap enough, zodiac are good boats, try to get the following
ensure the tank is included, get wheels that fold up and down if putting in the car
try manhandling the engine and boat as if you were putting them in the car if that is what you will do, mine are around 37kilo each which is quite heavy when lifting it and moving it, into the back of a disco
also check the weight and rolled up size of the boat, it may fit in your car

what car do you have?

Yes it is. The speed will feel incredible fast in such a small boat. I used to have a 3.6 with 18hp and although the SIB was rated for 20hp, the 18hp felt dangerously fast at full throttle. About 18 knots BTW (20mph). Don't get hung up about the numbers, they are irrelevant. It feels like 100mph!

How about getting another paper-round and getting a proper boat? These things are tenders.

Cheers Dickie B . Hey Chris, What happened to Rubnuts and his 9m "See me girls" projectile from last night? Do we think that he was fibbing?

all seems quiet on that front, not sure where he was coming from on that thread, i was thinking he was taking the piss out of people fortunate to have large craft with sexy engines but not entirely sure.

me i would love a 9 or 10 m scorpion but not with "see me Girls" on the back

here is what i snapped at scorpions yard on sat when i was nosing around

i think it would make a great family boat for what i need.......


should tow a ring with my 5 year old in it reasonably well

as long as i would get 1l to a nautical mile i would be happy

That's pretty serious, twin Merc Alpha legs with five bladed cleavers. What engines did it have? Was this their race rig?
