A marriage made in heaven

yamaha and ribquest make a great marriage, what do you think. with no weight in the boat nitrox has seen 48kts with the tide against, she would make 50kts + and proabaly the best fuel usage in its class

Can't fault either products. Plenty press on the fuel efficiency of the Yammie V6 lump.
Here's figures from someone state-side who has one hooked up to a Skeeter WX2100. http://www.idofishing.com/forum/show...0-hp-off-shore

Slightly off topic, but I had to find out what the hell a Skeeter WX2100 was and found this. Wow, I have a hard enough job getting my wife anywhere near the rib, never mind her getting into a storage locker!

Never mind being a good test for a boat...

That's a good test for a new wife!

I reckon if a burd is neat enough to fit in a storage locker AND be quiet for five minutes - she's a keeper

Hi Nitrox. I have the 300HP on the rear of my Ribeye S785. I am very pleased with it and the fuel economy is excellent. I am interested in what propellor you have and how you find it. I have the 19" s/steel Saltwater. This gives me all round good performance, especially pick up. You won't be disappointed with your Yamaha! Regards, David Mc.

hi i tryed 23" pro and 21" neither made the engine rev out to its full, tryed the 19" prop, completly changed the boat, well pleased, it sounds like the 19 is good for loading the boat as you are a charterboat, not tryed with the weight of divers\fishermen yet cheers neal
