Out or In ??

I am looking for advice on a new rib purchase. The main decision I have to make is whether to go for outboards or diesel inboards and whether or not to go for twin outboards or twin diesel inboards and the reasons for it.

Look forward to responses.

What size is the boat?
What are you planning to do with it?
How much money do you have?

We'll start with those three and then narrow it down from there. As I've been guilty of it in the past weeks have a look at the FAQ on diesel vs. Petrols!

I'm with jlanng, The trouble with in'ies is the amount of blue fluff they collect.

Pettal is of course making far more sense.

in that case i would go for twin outboards some thing like 135hp/150hp which would cost around 12,500 that would leave the rest for the Rib
