It's a devil isn't it. Cumbria comes on here with a good idea what he wants and we're starting mission creep adding £400 to the sib cost and now toying with £350 more on the OB!
Absolutely. I think there are different 'sweet' combinations. 3.2m/10hp or 3.8m/20hp and then start trailering with a RIB like us, 4.2m/30 or 40hp.

As always being 'sea-safe' depends primarily on having safety kit, watching the forecast and being situationally aware of hazards such as overfalls. More important than the craft methinks.

your totally right David but he would lose £750 if he wanted to upgrade finding the rig wasnt enough for his needs i think we have all done that thats why these threads go through this process IMO better to advise now from our experience

It's only postage they are not losing a sale
It just goes back unboxed to Honda UK's warehouse. They sell them every week!

Donít let them bully you into a sale mate. You can just say no. But I appreciate youíre trying to do the right thing by them.

In truth while it might be nice to go to a 20hp if chosing a 3.8m at least the 15 is a totally suitable OB for all the sizes you are looking at so a solid choice. And if I was paying a Honwave dealer £2200+ for an OB I'd be pretty miffed if they wouldn't let me upgrade the sib.

15hp won't pull a towable toy.
