Anyone with a 2000ish AB Inflatable VST?
I've been running a '98 Yamaha C60 2-stroke on my '99 AB Inflatable 450 VST Oceanus; however, the motor seems to be slowly dying (110, 110, 85 psi compression on the cylinders). The transom plate allows for a 70 (or 75?) HP motor max. I'm considering getting the new Yamaha F70 LA 4-stroke. I'm looking for anyone with a similar boat and what size make/model motor are they running. These AB Inflatables seem pretty rare, as I don't see many posts about them. Would it be too crazy putting an $8,000 motor on a RIB that only cost about $2,500 to buy and fix up?
