Will 20hp be enough to pull toys on a quicksilver 430?

Hi there,can anyone give me some advice? Hopping to get my 1st SIB this weekend, I like the quicksilver 430hd, plenty of room for me, the 3 children and the dog to potter around the Pembrokeshire coast and have seen a tidy one with a honda 20 4stroke....but will this be able to pull the kids on a ringo or do I need to keep looking for a 25hp motor?

Yes I would have thought so, the less people in the boat the better, but don't expect to tow any skiers

That is a big heavy rig are you going to keep it on a trailer?if so why not look at a rib of that size? If you are going to be packing it up it will be a right royal pain and be very heavy and take up loads of room

Thanks Black Pig...I see your from Salcome..lovely down there but the crowds...!

I decided on the 430 because in theory it should be more straightforward to launch from the local beach, especially with the launching wheels. She'll be staying on the trailer and as its just me and the kids didn't want the hassle of launching and retrieving a heavier boat.
Was torn between a 3.8 and the 4.3 to be honest...

It is going to be very heavy for a sib recon you could have a aly. Rib tender for the same weight which will be much better in any chop!

I didn't realize ribs could be that lightweight...but in my budget it would be an older avon searider or a little 3.5 tender...bit too small.

As the kids grow, the engine will need to do so too. I had a 3.8 zodiac with 30 hp and it was ok when they were small but once they hit the teens, a bigger rib was needed. 20 may be a bit small in my view. Depends on size of toy though. Small ring anishtar may be ok but a two person one and it could be tough to get on the plane. I would go large with extra fries. 30 minimum on a 430 if the numbers mean 4.3m
