if its any help, there is a place down here selling Ribtecs. I have no idea on price etc, but they have quite a few boats in stock. The company is called Gliddon Marine. I have heard a rumour that the boats are imported from holland, but not sure how reliable my source is......they advertise on boats&outboards i think.

also i suspect you will need to pay the price for a scorpion

Well it is very hard to do if not inpos. if it has the yam digital hour meter it is impos you would hav to take it out and open it you to get to the memory and do it that way is its is impos. if its the anolog type i think that would be hard to do. but i would get some of the outher guy to tell you what thay think thay have a lot more info than i hav prob.

hellob there mike...

hello, have you looked at humber? when i decided to change my boat, and strated looking aorund, there just didnt seem a better option for quality, hull design and price, my options were the medline 11 (good if you want luxury, but you sacrifice a little on the hull side of things, but excellent finnish), ribeye playtime, (pricey and simply not good enough), an avon 620, (excellent finnish, qualoty and looks, but more suited to lighter waters than true rough weather) and then there were xs ribs, coastline ribs, and other such smaller, relatively new companies, all of which when totalled up exactly what i wanted didnt end up as cheap as i had hoped, humber however have put a cracking package together, its gonna be a sweet boat, humber ocean pro 6.3, suzuki 140hp, leisure fitout, blue tubes white hull! seriously think you should have a look at humber, nice looking boats i think!

Mike i would be carefull with so few hours use not as bad as to many but could still cause problems, I bought a boston whaler dauntless a while back the engine was a 75 2 stroke mariner with very low usage and because it was used so little it caused lots of problems when i started using it, O.K it's a yammy and it probably will be o.k but a word of warning thats all.
