Even at 15K I'd say that was a good price; maybe a bit underpowered though.

I was looking at that RIB, stupid question but I suppose the weight and twin 90 4strokes is going to give alot less miles to the gallon than say a single 150?

My RC 6.4 has twin 115 etec (2 stroke) I wouldn't want anything less. Ribcraft wanted to put 90hp (4 stroke)Suzooks on it. I think the 6.8 will be a bit of a slug with the Hondas, it'll go, but it won't light your candle & put a big grin on your face.

I agree, you need a 225 ETec.
