"She has a reconditioned 4.2 liter Mercruiser turbo diesel- (Based on a Toyota Land Cruiser engine)" Hmmmm.... I could be wrong but I don't remember the Mercruiser diesel being one of the Toyota based ones!

Lot of RIB for the money, but will probably keep you busy and consume a fair bit more cash than the initial outlay.

Yes but she does come with a brush to hold the engine cover up. Can't quite work out what holds the rear of the engine cover on, surely not just that bit of rubber and who makes Northern Explorer? looks more like a humber.

Think I would rather have this:
Clicky
or this:
Clicky

I thought it looked like a Northcraft or a BWM based hull?

If I had the cash I'd be heading towards that 1st pac22 right now. 2.5 engine hours!

As diesel outdrives go, the Merc 4.2 coupled to a Bravo 3 leg is a good one. Not sure where they got the 'Landcruiser' bit from. I always thought it was a Cummins.
