I have a 5.4 with two man console and it has the same space behind the console as that one so I recon it is a 6 as stated. Also 90 is the max recomended for a 5.4.

Happy ribbing.

Ian

Looks like a 6 to me, bearing in mind it has a 3 man jockey consul and a 140 Suzuki on the back. Hard to tell 100% though.

Looks like a 5.4 to me.

The same number of inner handles and safety line loops as my 5.4 anyway. Guess there'd be one more of each on a 6m?

Wouldnt fancy it having a 140 on the back - far too much weight both for transom and balance.

Not much detail in the listing either - always makes me a bit nervous!

You after another project Nos?

Take a look at this pic of mine- http://rib.net/forum/attachment.php?...3&d=1169404130

and then look at the pic of the one on ebay.

It's the same number of loops of safety line. I don't know about handholds-Matt H had mine redone so not sure if I've got more than normal.

If you look at the raised area the consoles are bolted down to you'll see the console of that is further forward on the raised bit than mine is too, creating extra room in the stern-and take into account that my seat overhangs the back of my console a bit too.
