Humber sea pro Rib

Any one been in or driven a Humber Sea Pro RIB.
Been looking to up size from my 4 meter assault and I see that the sea pro is available in 4.8 and 5mtr. max outboard HP 60.
I have a spanking new 50 Hp tohatsu. I would swap over.
Or should I stick with the assault in a 4.7

Thanks

sea Pro is intended for inshore work and has an almost completely flat bottom at the stern for use in shallow waters.

If buying new I would be going for an Ocean pro 5.0 2m beam.

Which is what I have the 1984 edition granddad of...

Don't know where you are in Scotland, but once I get my steering cable un-seized you can come for a spin in the "MK1 O-pro" to test it if that is on your short list.

No you don’t, the Delta Seasafe was the attaque / ocean pro 2.0m hull (sometimes modified to a flooding hull)

The Sea Pro 4.8 is very different from the ‘mk1 O- Pro’ They were/are both made by Humber but that’s where the similarities end.

I had kind of assumed my comment would read on from yours....

Trust me - I have a Seasafe. Fitted out by Delta as an FRC. Carries maker's plates from both companies.

Granted you may have thought I was saying I had an O-Pro rather than a Seasafe, which is why I put "MK1 O-Pro" in quotes.

Apologies for any confusion.

Back on topic... as mentioned, the Sea Pro range have hullsl designed for operating in shallow water rather than deep v hulls. Good boats for what they were designed for. I believe BAS still use them, along with bigger ribs and also inflatables.
