Thanks all, its not going to happen, with a child on board any rib I get, its just not worth the risk of being thrown out during a sudden rush of blood

Big waves, small boat ;)

I wouldn't right her off just yet as she has a lot going for her. Good price, built in fuel tank and A frame, trailer looks good and has some electronics on board. That Mercury should be worth about 1200 on E Bay and for that you cold pick up a nice Evinrude 70 or Mercury 75 which would be much more suitable.

Jason at RC sold a Ribcraft 4.8 with a mariner 50 2 stroke many years ago and about 12 months later he had a call from a new owner (3 rd hand now) complaining about the handling being twitchey. Jason suggested he bring it back for checking, the chap turned up with his old boat with a johnson 150 on the back.......

Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
