New kid from Tx.

Hi all

Just joined the forum to ask a question which Ill post in a little while.
My RIB is a 1994 10' Alliance Seaworthy with an old 15 HP gas O/B

I have a 1986 Mainship 36' MY. My RIB will be my supply ship ( )and local cruising/exploring vessel.

Like any other forum I have joined, I will probably be an active member for a long time to come.

Maybe he just has a thing for queers or steers or both.
Either way, he likes beef.
To each his own.

I assume by "it", you mean the dink.

I was looking on the internet and my boat says "Seaworthy" on the side.
The best I can ascertain is that it was made somewhere in Europe or Asia and distributed by West Marine. My paperwork says Mfg by Alliance. This may or may not be true. When I bought the Mainship 36, the dink came with it and the broker handled all of my paperwork. Anyway, as far as I am concerned, a RIB is a RIB.

Anyway, I took this pic today while testing out my old O/B motor.

That looks familiar. Almost identical to the West Marine 350 rib I was playing with in Florida. It flew with 15hp.

Is it hypalon tubes?

Yes, it's hypalon.
The motor on here in the photo is a 4HP Evenrude.
I was checking out my old dinghy motor.
Today, If I have time I will put the 15 HP on it. I expect it will fly.

Regards
