Fantastic boat that has seen many hours on the water at this stage! Engine is fantastic.. Very economical! Only problem i had at first was the engine was cavitating on turns... So we dropped the engine by and inch or 2 on the instruction of piranha themselves and it's worked perfect!! Anything else just get back to me!
Not quite sure why there is not more on Piranha RIBs on Ribnet as they seem a great package for leisure ribbing. We have the Evinrude 90 ETEC on the back which is a good weight to power ratio. For our needs it ticked all the boxes for taking friends out for the day round the islands where we live. The folks down at Piranha Hayling Island are always very helpful and certainly fitted our boat out well for a decent price. We have not been out in really rough stuff yet but in smooth to moderate water we top out at around 36 MPH. Our son hopes to try wakeboarding behind her in August when he comes out to see us so hopefully this will be another tick in the box.
There are some pictures of our RIB 'Re lax' on the moored just off the beach here on the Piranha Facebook page.
Thanks for your feedback.
