[QUOTE=willk;583342]I hadn't a clue either, but I've done a LOT of research on the subject on RIBnet. My findings:

Atlantics, Artics and Pacifics (AAPs) were RIBs purchased by organisations that were wealthy enough to be able to avoid Seariders. They were produced in Orange and/or Grey. Some were Black but if I were to tell you about those, I'd have to kill you. AFAIK, they were all built with red brick and corrugated steel (or whatever you build brick sh1thouses from in the UK). AAPs are highly sought after but mere mortals cannot buy a working example. Instead they must buy a "project" grade bargain. These are generally kept in sheds, often for years, as the new owner seeks parts and funding. A "shed class" AAP can cause quite a lot of confusion, as they can be difficult to tell apart. A giveaway is evidence of inboard engine mounts, confirming that it was once a Pac. Tubes too are often a source of grief, as they are scarce and pricey. CITEs raids have accounted for a lot of the scarcity, when used AAP sponsons have been mistaken (by appearance and smell) for elephant body parts and destroyed. Attempts to "home grow" AAPs by feeding steroids to SR5.4s have so far failed to bear fruit as instead of butching up, the Seariders merely grew additional antenna and safety equipment.
Will a 200ho go on a pac 22

Next door's lifeboat, an Arctic 24, was capable of just over 40 knots with twin 135hp Optimaxes. The 150s they have now got them up to around 44kt.

I imagine a single 200hp would be just about adequate. Two of them must be... startling.

I used to run an A22 with twin 200's. Quick doesn't even come close to descibing it! Quickest I got was 59knts. Ended up with a single 200 on it after hitting a shipping container at speed one night.... it would still do 44knts on the single one (after it was moved to the center)

I consider myself duly startled: !

44 knots on a single 200 seems impressive given that it takes 300hp with twins and a couple of feet more hull.

One of the first wooden A24s which still had the flat on the hull for beaching hit. 60 knots with twin 175 Johnsons, in1986. This was also about the first to be help dropped.

The first attempts at shock mitigation seating was on a milspec A22 with twin 140s. Lying on the deck fully kitted up was to damaging to the human frame.
