Big boys toy

Hello from Yorkshire.
We'll I said I would not have another Petrol non cabin rib. So the fact that I now have a new xs 9.9m with twin verados sat in my yard means that I never listen. Well it's certainly a very big rig attached to.my new Toyota Tundra. Biggest problem is finding a fuel station to get turned into??

There is not much damage so easy repair. Boat will be lifted off trailer when I do the work. Then service engines etc.

How are you planning to repair it? I considered it vaguely and it looked to me like the deck would need to come off to tackle it from the inside.

There is no actual holes so it can all be done from below as you would with any big grp motor boat or yacht with a keel. New covers ordered for complete boat. Seats and consule. Great service from XS ribs.

We did 48 miles on 95ltr for both engines at 30 knots. Rpm 4100 without supercharger boosting fully. Max revs if required 5600rpm.
Very quite. Much quieter than my 300 Suzuki on last boat. Will try and load video.
