As I posted previously, RIBInternashinul ran a SR4 with a 50 Yam 4-stroke and they found it stern heavy - you may find details on their website or in one of their recent mags. The weight problem could be addressed by carrying the fuel load forward, along with anchor, etc., but there's not a lot of deck space on a SR4, so it may get a bit cluttered. You'd normally keep this kit inside the console.

I looked on their site:
http://www.ribmagazine.com/site/
but there's no mention of it on there. You'd have to look it up in the magazine.

If it's decent you could always ask them to stick it on a pallet...
I'm doing a PB2 course at Northney Marina next weekend (11/12th) and can have a nose around if that's any use to you? Don't have much experience of those motors but can check the general condition/running etc.

Yours
Ian

Have tried a few links from a google search as well as the one you've posted and just get page load error.

Thanks

got a rib at last

Hi JSP you could try Ian at Liverpool powerboats he`s not far away from you and I can definately recommend him. Also I think ive seen a few s/h 40/50hp etecs on Boatsandoutboards they are very light and are powerful. Be careful about BH there`s been a few dodgy stories about them.
I have put a few ribs together and i`m not far from Southport you can pm me if you like i`ll be happy to help if I can.
Regards
Humper
