Temptress / Pro-Sport RIBs

I am looking to buy a new RIB, and am considering the 6.5mtr Pro Sport with a Yamaha 115HP 4 Stroke.

Does anyone have any experience of either the new Pro Sports - especially how the apparently Medium V hull copes with heavy seas, or the old Temptress RIBs, which I believe are the same basic moulding etc?

Sorry Graeme

I can't help you on this one. However I thought I would post a reply to bring it up to the top of the list again and perhaps someone who can help will see the post again.

PS The BOSS thinks I am doing something serious on the computer at the moment. I'm trying to avoid the long list of 'jobs' she wants me to do.

Can't comment on the specifics of your question, but I would have thought a 115hp would be *way* too small for 6.5m.

I have a 5.8m and would recommend a 115hp for that (I currently have a 90hp).

good luck
