To settle the argument: The Solent and Tohatsu 6.5 are the same hull, originally a Phantom design. The BWM Deep Sea 21 is a Lemmer design which I gather was "acquired" by Porters. This has a wider beam and flared bow. Porters did also make a 6.5 which is based on the same Phanton hull used in the Solent and Tohatsu models. Complicated!!
As clear as Mud then

Can you post a picture of your RIB so that we can identify which one it is?

I've had a look though your photo's and can't identify it as a BWM Deepsea 21 hull, but it's not a Solent/Tohatsu hull either.

This old advert might be helpful to you in identifying it for you. It's being sold with an Evinrude 175hp

Thanks Andy

My gut feel is that it would take a 150 comfortably, it is a heavy lay up with a very solid transom compared to may similar sized RIBs that I have looked at. Just a case of finding the right one.

Regards

Andy
