the only thing scarey about the boat and engine choice you are proposing is the stripey material for seats etc
...........no just kidding
welcome to the forum, there are a few folks from your area so would be good for you to touch base with them and setup some cruises.
folks have all sort of boats on here so you will get a good perspective

Years ago I worked at a salvage company. They used RIB's for fast resque missions. In this job I discovered my interrest for bouncing around on water at breakneck speed. It was a 30 feet rib with 2 v6 175hp outboards. Although missions were sometimes very scary (50 m/h in 10 foot waves), I never lost the need for speed.
So years later I wanted that feeling again and convinced my girlfriend we needed a pwc. We bought a yamaha gp1200r and had a lot off fun with it.
We have sold the pwc. We still want to go fast now and then but also and more important, we want to cruise and relax and take friends on a trip without scaring the **** out of them (our friends are easely scared).
To cut short: what do you guys think about our combination?
