If you google it there are images of a few online. Seems sad to put an outboard on such a capable RIB designed for a Diesel inboard. Would have to raise the transom considerably to enable it to fit.

Buy an Arctic, almost identical to the Pacific but designed to have outboards.

I agree, an inboard diesel would be the "nicest" option, but a cheap outboard represents a much easier and cheaper re-power if the original engine has gone bang. You don't need to raise the transom, in fact you actually need to cut a small bit out. I bought one which had an outboard fitted a few months ago (bought it for the engine) - here's a photo of the transom. The engine fitted was XL (25") shaft.

Quite suprising I would have thought it would require more height but I suppose with the engine out (inboard) the stern is considerably higher.

How do they handle with an outboard?

Was the leg /cav plate sitting really low on that set up Tim? Prob just the picture, but the saddle position looks very low for an XL shaft correctly set up.....

Was the transom beefed up at all thickness wise?

To be honest I never looked - it's quite possible the leg was too long for the setup, I bought it and took the engine off straight away. Transom wasn't beef up at all. I wouldn't have thought you'd need to, it's already pretty beefy!

Was just curious Reason I asked is that the transom on the Pac 24 is a pretty thin affair, which wouldn't really support an O/B....although that said, the Atlantic is relatively thin too (what there is of it) but it does have a substantial ali 'knee' plate to make up for it.
