Ally Hull

And so,
Single engine it is.........otherwise I'd have to go to two petrol stations and talk out of both of MY holes at the same time!!!
So, which engine onto a 5.3m aluminium hull with 0.5m hypalon tubes and a two man jockey. 225kg hull.
I so wish to have an Evinrude but that is completely unfounded and based upon childhood memories of an advert.
It's rated up to 90.
Would prefer a stinker 2t, esp if a Mariner. Weight and (for me) a Mariner is cool, again, unfounded.

Ribs are for pleasure and therefore not necessarily sensible. Buy with the heart

Not quite in your geographic area, but you won't go wrong with Mike Vincent at South Coast Marine in Christchurch, Dorset.

Thanks for the tip re South Coast. Spoke to Mike at length earlier today. Suffice to say my E-Tec will be supplied by him. Good sound advice. Many thanks.
I'll have my dream RIB sooner than I thought.
