Having owned an SR 5.4 for decade in the past with an opti 90 and now have the Humber 6.3 OP with Opti 175 on i'm curious as to the others that fit in the middle really.
I know the OP 6.3 (with 2.34 beam) is a much
bigger boat to the 6.0 Destroyer (most seem to be 2.28) beam. I've seen them next to each other on trailers when we bought ours.)
The SR just used to struggle going a long way out if there was any sea with a low bow etc. The OP is just fantastic, I'd go almost anywhere in it, I will bottle it
before it's capabilities ..... but it's quite a beast and unless you have a 4x4 really to tow it places, it isn't going far other than on water!
Thinking ahead (two years???) for a good boat to tow and launch with a 320d (2011) tourer, what would be a good balance? Has anyone actually been in them to comment on their abilities?
An RC 585 has a renowned hull (if not front hatch build quality
)and with a 115 opti on seems a great set up if you wanted to tow a lot. Is it enough though, or would the 6.0 Destroyer (with narrower beam than 2.34) be a better bet?
Got to admit, the below looks like a great boat for me/wife/two littluns on glorious days, Me and perhaps one littlun on a average day. Me and a mate for bad rough days. (For really rough days, I'd go on my own and have a play in the OP
cold but great fun.
