Humber Assault 5.5m

Hello,

I am new to the forum so please let me know if i am posting in the wrong place.

I have a 5.5m Humber Assault with a 2006 Tohatsu 90hp. Does anyone know what the 5.5m humber assault weighs without the engine (or with if anyone knows). Only reason i ask is the suspension units on the trailer need replacing and i am unsure how much it weighs in total. People have suggested a weigh bridge but this isnt practical.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Humber website is your friend with specs Rigid Inflatable Boats - a vast range of quality ribs for both leisure crafts and sports craft from Humber Inflatables

However the boat weights are only approx as they are all slightly different. You will also have to allow for weight of console and any other fixtures ie A frame etc.

Hi guys,

Thank you very much. I shall have a look. I am sure i will have more questions as time goes by. I have had the RIB a few years but have never really needed to know the weights.

On a different note - I use an inboard stainless fuel tank - It doesnt have a fuel guage - Does anyone know how easy it is to fit one and where to get one from.

Thanks

I wouldn't bother as I believe that they are not very accurate.

Hi thanks for that. I did wonder how they can be accurate while moving about. The only problem is its difficult to know how much is left as the tank is enclosed in the centre console. Under the seats in the stern i do carry a 25 litre tank as a spare but would be nice to know how much i have left. I suppose another option maybe a fuel meter that measures how much has passed through it. I know the amount the tank holds so that may work.

Cheers Will

As you know he capicity of your tank you could fit a fuel flow meter. Basically, measures the fuel that runs down the fuel line from the tank to the engine and will tell you total used, can be reset each time you fill up.

Believe they are pretty accurate, google it.

Good luck.

Andy

Thanks for the response. I will have a look. Will be a lot easier to fit as well rsther than having to take the console off to access the tank to fit a fuel guauge. Do they do fuel flow meters with a small display for the console?

Thanks Will
