So right..I have a couple of boats, bigger and smaller but my SR 5.4 is the only one that won't even consider to sell. It's surprisingly good in the rough an together with the yam, fuel economy is not bad.

I like the work boat/military appearance of the navy version, think fellow boaters believe its a small coastguard boat on distance....and no need to spend time on polishing it.

Given the right offer I'd sell mine, don't really get time to use it, motorbike would be money better spent....

SR 5.4 90 2t mariner, 35kts WOT, just serviced....
I think it's 1995 and 2004 engine....

I would look back if I had this rib as the fuel consumption would give me a heart attack.

Rib for life.... Something that is fun, does not consume half the planets oil reserves when out for a spin. Can manage a longer trip when needed, but also small enough to get into beaches etc.

Only one option, Osprey Eagle with a 90 or 115 e-tec on the back.

Our 5.4 with 90 opti was great..... But, rear transom too low and bow too low too. Wet over the back and front.

Delta dash 5.5 with 125 opti. (Same block more power) Now that's a set up with high sheer bow but pretty rare.
