Bullet holes?

Fuel bill must be silly and there's a limit to how much juice you can carry on a RIB surely, must eat into the drugs space!

And just imagine the heartbreak if you hit a floating bit of heavy timber just below the surface and removed five 200hp outboards in one go...

Mind you a couple of tonnes of heroin would probably pay for a new engine or two if you did get through

In the gallery section there's a thread about Crompton Marine's 18m RIB with 8 x 250 outboards.
