New rib

Hi,
I am thinking of buying a rib, on my list is a Solent SR650 with Suzuki 175. What sort of top speed could I expect from this or simalar RIB with this engine or equivalent.

No idea, but if this is your first rib it could be a bit hectic I would have thought

Hi,
Something to consider is insurance terms and conditions , usually if your boat can go over a certain speed they insist that you'll need to complete a power boat course, which isn't a bad idea for starters but it'll be a few more pounds to the budget
