Anyone know if 8.1 or 8.5m Scorpions any good.

Went on one years ago, and it was great in the rough, but at rest was quite wobbly as tubes set above water.

Scorpions are nice ribs and very capable. Having the tubes out of the water is better IMO as it means they don't get covered in weed when the boat is on a mooring, also I think the handling is much better as you don't have tubes dragging in the water. However the trade off is the rib will be slightly less stable at rest, not something that has ever been an issue for me however (the Vipermax has the same). And I often take the kids on board.

I guess tubes off the water gets less important as you get bigger boats. Sub 5m and its like a rocking dinghy when you get on!

If you want something capable of handling more than just a "chop"

What drive is this?

Is this acceptable with a Bravo 2, that does not tilt clear of hull? I always imagined it will potentially pull the drive through the transom...
