Pro Open 550

I had one with a 90hp Johnson, quick, 2 seasons use, no complaints. Good storage, good introduction to RIB's, no issues with and only time out in F6/F7 with powerboat instructor on board, interesting experience as I was new to RIB's !

Agree with Scotty "make sure extra patches have been fitted to the tubes underneath the cones..... where they join. This is a common place for leaks to occur". Mine leaked, local dealer put on a spare set of tubes while mine were sent away under warranty (5 years) for repair.
