If you like the idea of a Humber and (as you have a Johnson 2T already) an ETEC, you could try contacting Quinquari marine in Wales. They are connected with Humber and operate large ribs commercially with Evinrudes. The last time I spoke to them they said if you buy a Humber from them along with an ETEC, they would supply it rigged with an additional discount. You can get them at:

john@quinquari.co.uk

also:

www.ribstuff.com

Hope this may be of use and sorry if you already know all this stuff.

Thanks all.

Finances permitting I am leaning towards the Osprey option maybe with the Etec 130hp Roy suggested, though on the Ribstuff site I see they do an Etec 90 for 0.00 so I thought I might go for twins instead at that price

Am I right in thinking the Etec needs funny oil or can it also use standard TCW3? Only a minor inconvenience (I'd have to import it myself) but I just wondered.

Has anybody on here got the new Etec 130?

You can have the engine set to run on either TCW3 Oil (XD50 is recommended) or you can have it set to run on XD100 which is the really good stuff. When on the XD100 setting you will use less oil (mine averages at about 75:1 however it is quite expensive stuff.

Or the XD50 option at 6.80 litre XD50 which I think will be your best Stephen if your engine is set to run XD100 and you run out you cant use TCW3 unless in an emergency whereas if you run out of XD50 the engine will be happy running on any good TCW3 oil as it will be running the XD50 or TCW3 settings
