What do you think about Yamaha 2 strokes, there seem to be a lot around around the size I am interested in.

Will they use a lot more fuel than a Mariner or be more expensive, there seem to be a lot of them around second hand but quite new and with low hours.

Thanks

Andy

The shallow v isn't that bad in the rough! the 5.2 boat was built to accommodate small dive club/rescue market and has been around for years (shallow v giving more room in the back) to store kit. the boat is an all rounder and under 10k for boat, 60hp Mariner and trailer ready to go you will find it hard to beat.

oh no, i think it's an o.k. boat just that head on in some good chop they are quite bumpy , on the plus they are very responsive and accelerate very nicely.
As for a yam 50 2/ and mariner 60 4/ the yam is a much more brisk ride and is lighter, typical 2/ ,but what you can make up for in fuel costs i'd choose the mariner 4/, in fact ive got one, they are alot quiter, particularly at tick over, and have plenty of oomph for a 5 metre r.i.b.

Your talking to man who snapped the bottom off his spine, I like deep V

Like to arrange another rib run, however got a list as long as my arm for training as the weather was so bad in Nov & Dec, 15 Humbers to build, 3 Osprey sold and to build and a couple of days shooting (Before the season ends) and on top of that a bloody big house to rebuild.

When will see pics of Johns new rib?

Does anybody know the stance that manufacturers take on warranties for people who have fitted their own engines.

Jono, would the warranty be valid if I was to fit one of your 2nd hand outboards.

We would want to fit the engine for the engine warranty to be valid.

RIB Manufacturers arn't too fussy if you fit your own engine, it is the engine manufacturers who insist on Installation & PDI by approved fitter/dealer/boat builder.

Am I right in thinking that some engines also need to be set up by a techie after installation on the boat?

Part of the PDI with Optimax, Etec & Verado is a run through with the laptop after installation, this is mainly to prime the fuel & oil and check for faults. With E - Tec you also need to set which oil you are using.

Trailer

What trailers would you recommend for this size of boat, what manufacturers are good?

Do you think it would require braking as for this size of boat you can choose?

Also what sort of price should I be paying for a decent trailer, It will not be used for launch and recovery on a daily basis. Only a few times a year as I plan to have the boat on a mooring and the furthest it will probably have to travel is from the Rib Manufacturer and normally will never travel more than 100 miles once or twice a year.

Thanks

Andy
