My double console leaks - and as it is fresh water, I'm assuming that it is rain leaking in - I assume through or round were some of the fittings/gauges are mounted.

It never used to leak, and always held a positive pressure, until the MCA made me drill holes in it to ventilate the battery compartment. The holes themselves are covered with a grill/cover which rain can't get in - but the whole thing now seems to leak like a sieve.

With the last lot of torrential rain we had, I had to pump 6 inches of water out of it. Another job for the winter......

humber ocean pro

hey there,if you still havent reached a decision....... i bought a humber ocean pro 6.3m over the summer and think its amazing! i have a 140hp suzuki on the back which id perfect for the job! not sure about the ribcraft as i havent driven one, but the humber is great in cornering, great in rough weather, and ive been out in some rough stuff, and the wide double console i have gives nice shelter from the elements and spray. fuel economy is great at approx 3quarters of a ltr a mile average, and i think it looks fantastic. currently i havent had any problems with the boat, everything is sturdy and well done, admitably the boat interior is more practical than pretty, but when you look at the overall boat on the trailer its a proud craft to own! id go for the humber again if given the choice again!and 6.3m is a good size!
