Don't care for a second. You settle your Opti washing Persil situations and I'll cut to the chase re. what a decent RIB is.
Ninety two metres and twelve helicopter engines don't do it!

I reckon if you had to keep one for life, you couldn't go far wrong with an SR5.4 and a 90hp.

I love my SR4 with a Yam 40 2s; easy to launch, feels like it's doing 50 knots flat out when it is actually doing around 30 knots , very good on fuel. Only downside is the jockey seat is cramped for two. Maybe a SR4.7 is the holy grail of ribs (never driven one but would love to).
