V Nice Boat, I noticed you removed a boat rack from the trailer when you got it. Do you still have it? If so are you looking to sell It?

Regards

Michael

Ok - so I have changed the 60hp 15" e-tec prop for a 13x19" e-tec aluminium prop. Now with 3 people aboard she is topping out at around 36 knots and at 30knots im getting 2 miles per litre fuel consumption. Hole shot isnt great with three on board and full fuel load but it is fine with one or two.

I'm very happy with that! Looking to change her for a Ribcraft 5.85 or 6.8 at some point soon.

Hi Zodiac

Any change of a photo of the transom and the engine so I can see how the keel of the boat relates to the cavation plate

That's a good top speed for a 4.8 RC with a 60.

Hi, I've just registered as we're looking for our first RIB. Please let me know if you haven't already sold it, as this sounds like what I'm after
Cheers, Al

Al,

I have planned some trips in Scotland and Channel islands in the next few months but it may be available at the right price

Lets have a chat offline - ping me an email to gareth.stears@canterbury.ac.uk

Cheers

G
