more than you need

Yes, 140 is more than you 'need', but bear in mind that ribcraft is a heavy boat. it will be working at 2/3 output for the high speed/passage elements of most courses instead of screaming its nuts off, will have a similar fuel economy (same block) , will be more fun on and off the training course, and have an 'easier'/'better' resale value IMHO

hello nickster,the xs550 does look a great boat and of course are the ribcrafts but so is the price.For value for money humbers can't be beaten.
