I know Ribcraft weren't keen on fitting the first generation Soozook DF60, due to its excessive weight, despite being within the hp limit of the RC4.8.

a few weeks ago there was another RC4.8 sold with an 75hp Mariner 2Stroke, i saw the selling photos and i wondered how heavy she looked at the stern.

That was why i did that question.

I mean 160 kg might be a little heavy, too.

Thank you all
