115hp outboard wanted with PX

My friend has a 2006 50hp 4 stroke mercury outboard with full controls which he has on a 7m rib but it's not giving him the power he wants.

He wants to upgrade to 115hp and has upto a 1000 Plus Px of old engine

Let me know if you have anything!

Plymouth or surrounding area is best.

Call me 07788269622 - Jon.

I currently have 115Hp on a 6m rib and would advise a minimum of 150HP on a 7m rib

RIBase
A 7 meter RIB with a 120 HP max? which type is that? A RIB of 7 meter should be in the range of 115 to 250 HP...
Answer to the question. I think for a 1000 pounds extra u get only a (very) old 115 HP motor. Just wait a bit longer for saving money for a newer outboard..
Just my two cents.
And have a good RIB year !
