I fail to believe that you've been "around" the forum for so long and haven't picked up on the discussions about Prosport..... Codders will be along shortly to put you straight..

Before Codders puts his ore in......I have had dealings with the previous owner of ProSport and his workmanship and helpfulness is second to none.
Prosport ribs are aimed at the more affordable end of the market hence the cost. I looked at a beautiful Black Prosport before i bought mine which looked and handled superb (maybe a bit of a hard ride, but damn quick!)
As for the Rib advertised looks like great value for a sub 20k rib.

Just remember there is always two sides to every story...

The owners says he gets 29 knots out of it with 9 people on board, and it cruises at 25.

It wont be slow it will be painful. The owner is trying to sell it, our opinions are unbiased. If it were a 130hp O/B it would be sluggish, but as it's an inboard it will be gutless.
