not a fan of the rest of it i'm afraid. i guess it is not aimed at the practical boaters market. i.e lack of storage/seating and can't put an aux on the transom. i assume it is more of a drystack toy, which it will probably end up anyway i guess.
however, curious what the engine is like if you have any comments?
The seating is what we wanted on this particular rib. All the seats are bolted in and can be reconfigured to suit... There's also room for a third row of jockeys if you want the extra seating.
As for the engine... It's perfect. The power steering is a revelation and the torque and performance is outstanding.
Pulled an easy 50 knots on a 4 bladed prop and once the engine is raised a couple of inches (G2s like to run high) 55 knots is expected.
Dry Stack Toy ? guess that's down the the owner and what they choose to do with it !
