We sold our cobra last year a 7.5 with a 225 Yamaha F/Stroke
When the guy asked how fast it was, i said quick but you can check the GPS
fastest speed should be on it. he did and was shocked when he saw 65 knts.
now i know that even with a rocket pack it wouldant do 50
then my son noticed that we had left the unit on when towing the boat home
hope hes not too disapointed.
do you think this man with the ribeye as done the same ?

Our Phantom was an ex-ski race rig with cable steering. It was hairy as hell when it got airbourne. We had a cable let go at 50ish, it spat us clean out!

Nope, a well polished gelcoat hull does though.

unlikely it would reach 70 mph.

i have a 750 with F225 and I think my max is 56 mph, so that one with a bigger engine should reach 62 mph. As Richard says, the planing pad on the race hull helps a lot.

...and for the record, these RIB's are well built, quality boats with excellent performance. They do not fall apart.

I did my PB2 in a small Ribeye - the instructor is a bit of a nutter and loves wave jumping - we had a great time and were airbourne quite a bit - nothing broke - no nasty rattles and the RIB has been in hard use for 3 years now.
