How did they go with the Mariner 60s on them?
We had the 60 Bigfoot's, used to go like hot snot with just 2 pax, full boarding team you could get on the plane but that depended on weather conditions. They used to chine walk when the sea was calm. Nav lights never worked we just used to use cylmues (glow sticks) attached to the A frame. You had to tack in big steep swells to keep any speed, head on in to a sea you wouldn't get anywhere. HT leads would pop out a lot, starter motor would often fault and you would have to start with a screwdriver. They were used several times a day and night, and the coxn's are mostly teenagers so as you can imagine they were thrashed, I wouldn't do the things I did in a pussers RIB in my own RIBs because I have to fix them now and the Government doesn't foot the bill for me.
