i've been thinking about that one as well. Would like to upgrade my 98' two stroke 65HP to this new lightweight 90 HP... i'm only short 10Keuro ;-(

There is a thread from last year where this has been discussed. Obviously it's a bit big for a SR4,7, but anyway i think it would look nice. I wouldn't hesitate but it requieres a bit of discpline when sailing it. I believe the boat would not break apart, but just be somewhat overpowered. I guess it depends on what you use it for. If you need max speed it could be too much with 90 HP. I need it for carrying diving equipment (or waterskiing), which means just to get it out of the water.

I reckon 'Bulletproof' would suit it

It would probably be fine until you run over something/someone.
A pal of mine had one with a Yam 90 (same lump as the 75) and it was well-balanced, if a little 'exciting' at full pelt.

it was on ramco website, has been on there for a couple of months!! just spoken to Avon,first thing he said was "what you doing with this boat"? anyway the official reason for making the tubes like this is that when boarding fishing vessels may tubes were slashed to stop these boarding operations from going ahead..

also the transom weight is 130kgs for the milpro searider. have found a 75 two stroke for 2 k in scotland, nasty smelly 2 strokes
anyway, the engine that it was fitted with is the mercury 60 2 stroke bigfoot,
im going to have a play on a 60 f/s today, try and suss out the performance etc

it would be superb but ive had 3 of them now and just wanted a change, i did find a 75 hp yam, 2002, (bit old) for 2 k, no remotes
i also found a new evin 60 in blue, all the stuff for 4500 alll in, and that was based in cornwall near penryn.

went to southsea today to have a look at a merc 60 f/s,

the ad which has now been removed said,
Quote:
2006 Merc 60 four stroke, 1 owner from new, no marks or scratches. 100 hours. full docs
what it should have said was, :2004 merc 60 f/s 2 owners form new, skeg and prop has been wacked heavily and slightly bent the skeg, multiple chunks missing, no hour meter .cowling heavily scratched and 20% of the graphics missing, service book missing.

chap didnt give a monkies, so i promised him his ad would be gone by 5pm.
anyway ive located one after i got told by multiple dealers (if you find one ring us first as they are rare as rocking horse sh-t).how boring!!
