I couldn't agree more, as I said in my earlier post there are theory's about harmonics and all sorts, I dont think it's as simple as the amount of torque though as mine probably produce more than a yanmar, also, some last for ages and some last five mins, this could back up the harmonics theory, some people may inodvertantly cruise with an rpm/load that just happens to be exactly what billy bravo doesn't like!


Anyway, I didn't say there was anything wrong with that!

you make more money out of selling two engined boats in the trade than you do out of one.

When that is realised and people move over to prefer singles diesls then the buisness,s that can survive will go with the market and produce single engines diesl ribs.

In my humbel opinion

whilst it's a pain having two sometimes, and bloody expensive, it's nice that your auixillary motor is allready running when you need it, I never much fancied an O/B wiggling about on my transon at high speed day in day out waiting for it's day of glory, then with my luck the b*****d wouldn't start when I did need it!, also if your talking about a high performance boat (60 plus mph) then the neutral torque reaction charicteristics of a twin are difficult to match (the airborne stuff we all enjoy, rib's or otherwise)

Manos,
your posts say you have two boats, or you have one, and are waiting for the second to arrive, do you currently have one in this country, or do you leave it in greece?... and why did you say you were only going to do a couple of races with the new one? it seems a great expence to have an F2 boat put together just for two races! could you expand please

The whole gearbox was re built . we had strenghtend bearings shafts etc, seems fine now.

Graham has built loads of single engined diesel ribs.

sorry julian,
I think we're at crossed purposes, I asked how many 9.5 metre rib's he'd made as single's, I know there's been load's of single engined ones, but thought the 9.5 cabin rib was rare as a single!

My mistake

Yep the cabin with singles are quite rare. Not sure how many, Brian has one and there's 1 in sweeden at the moment which is our old one which had 2 300 Yanmars in but the guy took one out to sell.
