Humber Ocean Pro 6.3

Can anyone on here help me with photos of Humber Ocean Pro 6.3 on water, does the tubes touch on water when parked at pontoon ?

A friend of mine is seriously thinking of one and we will most likely pop over for test ride later in the week.

Help would be highly appreciated.

No the RIB will not be used for diving purpose, more for transporting purpose across bay with people and their belongings, today he is using his Narwhal

Sometimes it's really comforting to know that your boat isn't going to wobble at the wrong time

We were trundling along at 25kts at 5000rpm through a Clyde chop last night quite happily. Burns about 1L per mile. Gets onto the plane pretty smartly (now we've cleaned the hull) and goes on to about 35kts in calmer waters with two plus dog and full tanks (but the fuel consumption accelerates to match )

We've carried 2 + 6 pax, which is OK but really needs more HP to be comfortable. Probably a 150 or 175 would do it, but the transom is rated for 200HP so there's room to grow

My Ocean pro 6.3 did about 34 knots with a 115 4 stroke.
