3.4 rib or SIB?

My uneducated guesstimate would be around 28-30 MPH

That's one person, light load

Fibreglass bottom = rib (rigid inflatable boat)

Sib = soft inflatable boat (pvc or similar keel)

You'll easily get 25mph, should be slightly faster 👍

Think I used to get about 20 - 23 knots on the same boat with a 25hp; they are great fun, especially in the wake of something big

Southampton and Poole & Salcombe I used it, it was the perfect size rib for beach hoping in Salcombe - a little small for the likes of Southampton Water and going out of the harbour in Poole
