No problem for my 'beast' to pull, I am going to make enquiries on the cost of a trailer just for info. I am lurking on the edge of going RIB, but still can't understand the oddballs that own them I must be missing something in life but as they saying goes 'if you can't beat them join them'

I just need 5 good reasons why a RIB is better than my fantastic speedy hard boat (err..to justify the purchase to my wife )

1. Its softer for when the missus drives at the quay
2. Its softer for when you accidentally bump the quay
3. Its softer for when your "mate" takes it straight at the quay
4. Its easier to get your missuses hand bag back over the side if she drops it overboard.
5. It just looks so much cooler than a hard boat...

Bravo Three, have you gone above 300 hp in previous builds when coupling to a Bravo Three, I am of the opinion that with diesels, anything above 300hp and Bravo Threes arnt able for the torque the diesel unit developes.
I am just wondering have you had any failures with the Cummins Diesels 320 s and Bravo Three, legs , so far.

i'm sorry - but the ad says

Build cost 650000 plus vat only 10 hours running must sell hence absolute sacrifice .

can this be right? does he mean 65,000 perchance?

The blue light on the radar arch looks interesting Would it be illegal to blast around with that on, its not a road?

This boat looks stunning in real life, but the colours are a bit commercial and it would be nice to have a cuddy type enclosure to sit in out of the wind to make a cup of tea
