Rogue - Are you talking about the 130HP honda on the link he posted (which refers to the 76 L tank) ? It is a 4 stroke - so I would have thought at wide open throttle you would be looking at closer to 40 L/hr - so should get closer to 2 hours at full throttle, and more at cruising speed (probably about 3 hours).

Aghh

I didn't see the link I thought the tank was on the Ribeye. Most four strokes get thirsty at the top end of the power band so I don't think you'd see anything las small as 40lph at WOT. I do accept that cruising speeds are significantly more frugal.

The Honda 130 has an awful power to weight ratio. It weighs close to a quater of a Tonne and only produces about 115 at the prop. That boat seems very dear to me and it's going to be stern heavy

Would you kindly post your definition of a "proper rib" and describe in detail why a Ribeye does not meet your criteria?

Thankyou

That Ribtec looks more like a 6.5 than a 585...

Heres some other ideas from me:

Oldish engine but its cheap enough, plus its a great boat. With the money you save you could potentially sell that engine and put another (used) opti or something on in due course. Edit: something like this: http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/KWM518

Just on budget. Very well made boat with lots of extras.

Probably not ideal for what you want but I want that boat!

Bit over but lots of boat for the money. Looks quite pretty too
