Cod

What about linking some stunning Revengers at stunning prices?
I suppose the 715 might be good value - don't about the seakeeping, tho. Don't want another Bayliner situation.

Cod

You are not surely saying that it would have been able to go out in a 715 in seas like the Whitby ones?

Some extra weight in the nose and a good driver then yes.

RIB are incredible in the rough.

Watch this video on Youtube - the condition are terrible - best views are from 1/2 way through. The RIB type boat is only about 7m I would guess. Almost like the waves aren't there.

52kt winds after earlier 84kts - 10 - 12 M waves..........

Bit dark there, Cod.

However, I take your point, but the 715 (even with extra weight in the nose)? The 715? !!! ???

If you're right, I'll have to go one some very serious thought.

Watch it from about 3/4 of the way - in a dark room helps!!!

Remember the more weight in a RIB the better in conditions like that - full tanks and a few extra crew helps a lot.

To be honest I would be happier in a Humber 7m or a Delta 7m - the Revenger is more sportsboat but it does have an incredible hull - the nose is a bit pointy for a following sea though but driver ability also comes into it.

They use 2 different RIBS - both under 7m - pretty standard types - the special thing about them is the lifting and recovery methods to enable them to launch/recover in any conditions. The tubes are often foam filled.

Just look at the conditions!!!

Hi Rupert.
The Revenger is very good. I nearly bought one (or two), They have great top end and good in the rough. Living where you do I would not consider a 715....too small. It will handle all the Crap out there but you won't. It will be wet,bumpy and not fun. Go for an 8m plus Revenger Cougar Scorpion, and a dozen others which are good.You need to decide what you want it for? Revengers are sports type ribs,so wont be as good in the rough as a osprey or Humber etc. But by golly very quick..I didnt buy a Revenger because it didnt seem as good a deal as the Cougar at the time.
just my 2 cents..
Tony

I have bought one Revenger a few weeks ago in the UK.
We have retubed it ourselves with black tubes from Henshaw.

I will repaint the original Revenger console in black semi gloss and I have bought 4 new racingseats wich will be placed on a homemade aluminium suspension system.
