Hi Jeff, thank you. well my last rib was a lomac and a 50 hp evinrude etec that was faultless no issues at all i fancy the zodiac pro 550 with a 75-100 hp engine i have a reasonable budget so i think i will have a good look around to see what is about.saying that i have come across a rib (tubertini) seems very nice but i cant seem to find any info on them

Just be careful with unheard of ribs, I lived just up the road from Piranha ribs on Hayling Island and they are still on sale second hand but are basically unsafe scrap. They looked good when new but I believe they had fake CE markings and could not get an RCD rating.
I'm not saying anything against Tubertini but I would check them out!

Thank you for the advice I noticed it on a website but could not find any info on that particular make after searching the internet for a couple of hours so came to the conclusion that they didn't make a mark in the industry many thanks
