my first rib (searider)
just bought my first rib which i pick up on saturday. its a 4m searider and in good nick. the hull no. is 300 and something, has any one got any idea how old this will be. also what is the elephant trunk thing, some kind of self bailer?
bought the rib with no engine so i need a 50, thing is i have a 40 jonson on my shetland cadet. if i put this on the rib temporarily what kind of top end can i expect. there is a guy on boats and outboards claiming 35kn on a 40hp, but i think this is pie in the sky, what do you think?
