Probably the best size for that particular hull is 115hp, I have a 90 but would like just a little more oomph.......

Don't be frightened of the big power. You will appreciate it in time. You'll get better than a litre a mile which is approximately what most general purpose ribs do, give or take a point sumthing of a litre.

There's an Atlantic here
http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F213237
I always thought it was Attaque. What's the difference between the two hulls then?

John - that's the one we are off to have a look at - can't find anything on the Atlantic anywhere so wondering if it's wrongly labelled - might ring Humber in the morning and ask
