Revenger 715

Hi All

I'm thinking of buying a Revenger 715 for personal use and as a 4th boat for the school.

I know the laminaters and the tube builders personally, so know they are very well built.

Anyone been in one? Do you think a 150hp is powerful enough? What is the bench seat like for the driver?

Anyone know if the 760 will be the same layout?

I had a test ride on the 715 with Honda 150 at Ribex. Engine was incredibly quiet and smooth and we did reach 50mph, but the boat definitely felt it could have done with 200hp. If it's for school use as well then I guess the 150 would be sufficient and if it was a direct injection 2-stroke it would of course be quicker than the Honda.

This is a little off-subject, but what the hell..............
at RIBEX I thought I saw a Revenger, diesel version, with a drive-shaft instead of a "leg" and a pair of s/s cuffs surrounding the prop. (presumably for protection).
My interest is:
Does this work?
Is it better than having a "leg"?
Is the owner happy?
Any other comments?

I'm fairly sure that boat is one of Pascoes Sport Ribs with a surface drive system similar to the pulse drive? He was going to race it as soon as he changed the seats and a couple of other things but havn't heard anything since.

It's an EPS V8 TigerShark ... concept and build by EPS Marine, Hull design by Ocke Mannerfelt and hull made by Mark Pascoe.

Apparently the engine and propulsion system is exclusive to EPS.

Only on the usual issue of direct injection 2-strokes' superior acceleration vs 4-stroke. But the Honda was lush
