Soozook DF50: 108 kg (Same weight as Yam F50)

yes, my F40 carburettor is done for 84kg. So with 25 kg at least on the transom, the Solent shouldn't be poor?
And also, i want to keep a light boat, i don't want a frame, rear seat...I only want a 2 person jockey console. It will be a rib for spearfishing (2 persons), so i want to keep maximum space at the back of the jockey seat.
I'm waiting for informations from info@solentribs.com

do you know if it's possible to have a storage under deck front the console to store the anchor like this? http://www.atlanticribs.com/galeries...rama-sr-02.jpg

The hull came from a company called Watercraft which stopped trading in the early 90s. Ribtec used the design for there little ribs for a decade. Solent bought the original watercraft mould and asked Ribtec if there would be a problem making a similar rib which Ribtec said no, our main market is larger and custom ribs so carry on.

Quite a nice little boat, had 36 mph with a 70 hp evinrude out of mine and averaged 4 gallons an hour, not bad for a 2 stroke.
