going back to your original requirements! you specified twin engines is this for redundancy or speed.

Assuming two big uns would burn 60 lph each cruising and should give you 40 knots at that then you are looking at a 40 knot 80 mile channel crossing using 300lph (thats including 20% extra fuel for luck) get twin 200/250 lph tanks and you are laughing, If I was you i'd spec ali tanks perhaps that should be if you was me I'd spec ali tanks

do you want a cabin rib or open

Redundancy. A small auxillary isn't much use half way across the channel.

Open.

Spoke to Mark Pascoe earlier. Nice bloke and interesting chat. Beautiful, fast RIBS at the top end of the pricing scale. The SR9 looks awesome and will take up to 2x300HP. Top speed would be something silly like 70+ knots and 50-60 knots would be plenty, so maybe 2x225 or 2x250 would be better. Full package would be be bucks though. I think I'll take a trip to Revenger and Pascoe's operation and have a look.

If you ar ecoming down from Cheshire the good news is that Pascoes and Revengers are fairly close to each other. The Revenger owner doesn't like Mark very much, it goes back to the racing days

Mark is a good guy and he makes eckskwizit boats, he is a perfectionist's perfectionist and you pay for what you get!

I guess Scorpions have ruled themselves out via timescale but if you are in the area I'd definitely have a look at an Evo which have great looks and are cost effective and perform very well, if you are lucky then the builder neil Holmes will take you out for a spin. whichever boat you have bought you might consider using his performance boat schools services to get the best from yours

Likewise Cookees boat is also well worth a look and it seems to get better and better

Why is nobody talking about Osprey? They are very fast and handles great in choppy waters.

You seem to be preocupied with money. Would you like to talk about it? A problem shared is a problem halved etc.

Even though I don't really know you I feel a strange desire to help. Were you bullied at school? Maybe (touchy subject this) you are the one lacking in the wedding tackle department?

It's OK though, this is just a forum where people learn and share information about RIBS, so you can forget all that nasty stuff and relax

I think that I'm ok in both depts thanks. 6'2" and 15 stone kinda took care of both, thanks all the same. Defi no prob with money either, I just think it a little crass to mention one's wealth. My wife has a friend who's husband has a 9 seater private jet and a Helicopter which the wife gets to flit off for lunch in, the cool thing is, no one knows about either other than very close friends.
