Process of elimination - 90HP on SIB?
I'm a new member and have never owned a RIB. My experience is with GRF hulls and an occasional dinghy. Done some sailing too, but mostly Lasers only.
Here's the scenario. My 17-foot hull has just flunked its annual inspection. I'm not surprised, it's really old. Inspector wants it re-certified (which entails a fair bit of fibreglass work), but for various reasons I've decided to scrap it.
The motor (90HP) and trailer are in good shape. I'm thinking of just getting a new hull. And I'm seriously considering a RIB.
I first want to rule out SIBs (versus RIBs). The trailer can go up to 20-22 feet LOA, but I'm assuming a 90HP would be severely overpowered for a SIB up to 20-22 feet.
What do you think?
