Fastest Ribcraft in the west???

Could this be the fastest Ribcraft 5.85 with a 75HP capable of 40 knots???

"Rib craft 5.85, single seat with dive bottle rack,
rib does 40 knots with a two stroke 75hp mariner engine, which is a joy to start,first time every time,grate overall condition and the cheapest best value, Rib craft 5.85 on the net, comes with a braked roller coaster trailer,a frame nave lights"

Rib craft 5.85

Oh, ye of little faith - it's perfectly possible to get that boat doing 40kts.
Provided you follow the recommended technique.

Mine has been known to do 40 knots in a 30 knot speed zone
sadly with photographic evidence to prove it
