But won't you miss the occasional wall of water over the boat? I gather it's most invigorating.

I know the feeling Andy.

When I had my Gemini I had the smallest and lowest powered RIB of the Littlehampton RIBsters.

Well chuffed with my Vipermax with its 150 Opti horses. No longer have the smallest and lowest powered. Now I have a boat of equal length with a more powerful engine than the rest.

Oh no, not for bloody long.

Andre now has that flamin great grey Parker thing with the spare engine from the QM 2, Tony changed his XS up to 7 metres with a 225 Opti and Steve Green changed his 115 ficht for a 175 E-tec on the back of his 6.5 metre Ballistic.

Now I'm back to having the lowest amount of power AGAIN!!!

Good luck with the Viper Downhilldai.

A wise choice!!!

Thanks Phil. What prop are you running on yours and what sort of performance are you getting with it in terms of top speed and max RPM?
