I asked the same question a while ago - no reaql answers - am about to fit them myself!!!


Only worry is they say boats up to 50kts - now I suppose I will be lucky if my boat goes that fast but if it ever does will it be a problem???

I am seriously considering it ... a friend has a set on his 30ft Targa and loves it - just wondering how they would perform on a rib. They have had some excellent write-ups. Codders, have yours been fitted yet, if so when on earth are you getting her as I would really like to know how they perform on the Prosport.

Think they are about 250 - 350 - Volvo ONLY sell them through Volvo dealers and leave the prices up to them!!! They don't even advertise the bloody things - stupid way to run a business - much easier to get hold of the Yank ones.

They are supposed to work well and be almost unbreakable - nice bit of design but not a new idea - is anything???

Do have some more info that Volvo emailed to me if anyone interested. Will prob fit to my RIB - should be fun learning engine trim - transom jack settings and trim tab positions all at the same time!!!
