Tubes will usually clean up well with a little effort, use it as a reason to reduce the price!!! I believe the boat is worth a viewing if you have a friend in the north.

Initially, I was running the 21" Ali prop that came with the engine which got me to around 42knots at just on 6000rpm. I am currently running a 21" stainless prop from steel developments which gets around the same speed at the same revs. The difference though is when it's choppy (3 or 4 metre + waves), I find the stainless holds its bite better than the ali prop, certainly if you're playing in hard corners (can't remember the last time I did that though) the ali prop would vent, whereas the stainless won't most of the time.

I have a 6 metre with a 115 EFI Merc on the back - all ex demo that will need to go soon - photos will be on the website soon. Seating is 2 double jockeys and a bench seat 45+ mph two up full of fuel. Others here will testify as to the build quality!

Hi all,

The leeway rib in question has sold well over a week ago. it was a mk 2 with higher freeboard. a new one can be made for only 8,925 but the waiting list is extensive with a lead time of 6 weeks.
