Is 75hp enough ?

New to this Rib thing but have been sailing small boats for a while now, but me and the kids are now looking to have some different fun. Have been scanning e-bay. Is this a good place to buy ? have found this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ski-dive-boat_...QQcmdZViewItem and recon it could be just the thing for some cruising and some water skiing.

What sort of engine would be suitable for this size of boat have got my eye on a 75hp 2 stroke. Do you think this is enough for a 5M craft

Any advice welcome.

Hi, and welcome to RIBnet!

I suspect you're a troll, but if this is a genuine enquiry then this thread might be of interest: It's back again!

Although I may be suspicious, I made sure to welcome him first!

I could be wrong, but it just seems like too much of a coincidence given the very recent discussion about this boat.

He also shares an IP address with another RIBnet member; whilst this doesn't mean anything in itself, it does score on the Troll Radar™. As does the alphanumeric username and a hotmail address.

this is a fantastic boat and we would all thoroughly recommend it, perfect for BBQ's, put a few firelighters in the center of it and lightly spread your charcoal over them, maybe exchange the seat for a griddle and you can cook your sausages a treat. but make sure you have an alternative way home. and that is making the very big assumption that the boat would get you to your intended bbq site in the first place

Before lightening the BBQ, I would advise you to full the tank and take some backup jerry cans. Don’t be afraid to spill some fuel on the deck. it can't do no harm.

Bon appétit!

I heard a rumour that it's his first attempt at making a plug!
