Exactly that.

+1 exactly that.

I'd like to say 1-0, but it's probably 1-13 in pedantic pick up of comments made from not fully reading posts/making generic statements.

OP- take the 4.7 with 75 yam if its clean. It's be a rockin boat!

Thanks for the advice, so you would recommend this over the one on Gumtree?

I am also bidding on this one HUMBER ASSAULT 5.0 M RIB | eBay

It looks like a nice boat and I may be able to nip down and get it.

The 4.7 Searider is the best sub 5m rib ever built

But you can block the flooding hull easily enough if you are keeping afloat. I think Mr Shoe was referring to condition of vessels which may be kept afloat.

I'm not personally advocating running a 75HP on a transom / hull rated for 70HP. The usual complaint is "insurance" but others have managed to cover things with much worse "over rating". I'm not sure what it matters in any MAIB investigation. Personally I'd prefer to avoid accidents than worry about the MAIB "labelling" me for things that almost certainly didn't cause the problem. Sensible use of the throttle, close inspection of the transom (both before and after purchase) etc is wise.

Ah, the wonderful catwalk. Due for a quarter of a million pound extension and overhaul.

The boat will be used to nipn over to the mainland to collect supplies and be used for a quick impromptu joyride during a quiet spell.

Recreational trips might come at the end of the season when the sea gets a little choppier

Beware the ASSAULT and the ATTAQUE are not the same design. The Assault is the least appealing of the craft you have mentioned for use in the Sound of Jura. I would search the forum for feedback before parting with cash. They are perfectly OK for a lot of uses, eg. dinghy club rescue boats where they don't go out for long distances in big waves, and the smaller engine demands of a shallow V hill make for a fuel efficient design and lower initial outlaw on a motor.

Cheers for that

A quick translation. They slam like hell.
