All engines are either new or as good as

A couple of interesting things are that these are all still available new I believe? And it would be good to finally get a SR4.7 and a RC4.8 together to answer that longstanding question, which is the best rib under 5m???
Pointless.. the 3.5 is clearly best.

This is probably a really dumb question...but I can't seem to find out how to view Powerboat & RIB magazine via the website. I used to be able to read it via a web browser on my laptop, now the ability to see anything but a preview of the current edition has gone.

It works fine on my iPhone...but I'd prefer a bigger screen!

Am I being stupid or have they randomly removed the ability to view it via the website?

I would love to see more reviews and info on sibs, obviously you couldn't fill s magazine with just sib related articles but sibs and ribs below the 5k budget would be far more interesting for the vast majority of us
