No problem at all mate, I was convinced it was an optimax and you can just see the graphics on the engine in the pic! Humbers are extremely well built and as you say by sorting the tubes and a-frame you will have a very capable boat.
Is the engine as mint as it looks?
Its great news that a RIBnet member has bought it, post some pics of the rebuild!

Best of luck

Alex

RRP on new Opti 150 Saltwater is 10245, so well done!! Some new toobs and a bit of a clean and she will be sweet.

How many hrs on Opti?, says 30 on ad but then you say its not yet run in?? May be worth getting a system diagnostic/history test done on it?? You can check warranty details here also:

A sweet engine!! should push that humber along nicely!!

Well spotted Ads!!

She's not in the dark anymore! After I telephoned Saturday morning to congratulate you Still...I expect you know that by now!

Well done anyway. A good purchase at a great price! And once the Ribcraft goes, the wonga could cover the cost of a new trailer for this baby.

Oh and don't worry about speed. After sticking 2 heavy batteries and 2 extra pods on mine, she doesn't go as well as she used to. C of G is in the wrong place now and she sits too low in the water at the stern. She really needs all pods and console shunted forward 18 inches. However it'll be close when we do the first comparitibe run!

Give me a shout when you get her home and I'll come up for a look see. Always here if you need a hand with any bits 'n pieces on the tidy up.
