Hi guys

We are Fred and Rachel,we recently bought a second hand 5.5m Humber with a mercury 90hp 2stroke engine ,itís safe to say itís not been the best purchase weíve made with all the teething problems,however we are quickly learning that the rib community is full of amazing people willing to offer help ,support and very valuable advice,
Thank you 🤙

Had to have new trailer and tubes needed repairing ,engine has just been serviced
Took it to Menai at the weekend and discovered it takes on water so that put a stop to that ,the hull will be going for a refurbish, the engine runs sweet very fast but speeds not as important as we just love being on or in the water

Hi guys

Looks nice, attaque hulls have allot of history behind them and will be quite quick with that engine! Will look out for you on the waves next summer! The refurb season has started for me now so now more boating this year

RIBase
Be careful in a following sea, the Attaques are prone to stuffing due to the narrow beam.
