Paul, yes I would like to try out a 115 in a 6.5M
I have spoken to a guy who has one and says it's fine with 4 up. The 90hp on a 6m is also very capable apparently, suggested 50 -150. Humber say the 115 will be fine also. I suppose it depends on use and much oomph you want, we will be toddling about at 8knots in Chichester Harbour 70% of the time, trip to the beach for the kids, anchor out etc, bit of fishing from the boat etc and I'll take her out into the Solent on my own for the rest. I'll take it down to Mylor also to go up the Falmouth estuary creeks and over to the Helford passage with family one day! I don't want to go up in engine size, weight of boat and cost of boat which is why I won't be going for the OP. A 6.3 OP is roughly 1K more, 70 - 115KG more, needs roughly 20HP more is .44m shorter than a 6.5 Destroyer but 13cm wider. I have some very narrow lanes to get to and some tricky slips so for me the Destroyer is the way to go - wouldn't mind your extra chine though
Polwart 6.5m example given and can juggle figures for the extra 35hp
Quotes inc VAT of course, and I don't know I am that serious about Humber so I don't know how they would know I am
still looking at at others
Osprey etc maybe a second hand one and you never know something might come up unexpected
Second hand Ribtec for instance.
This is all good advertising for Humber though
worth a bit of money off I think, eh Sue! or a couple of seats, how about a nice console if I start up an owners club
We haven't even started getting to the nitty gritty yet Polwart
Those are thumbs on the little devil aren't they... hope so!?
