It just happens that I do.

Max hp on a Ribtec 585 is 120hp

However mine has a 135 optimax and its very nice and it does not add that much stress. I know a charter company who run them with twin Honda 60hp's and no prob except a bit arse heavy!

The website claims 150HP, although I think this has recently been uprated, this seems about right as alot seem to be fitted with the Suzy 140 lump and Opti 150.
