You must have been looking at Girl Eimear in the Redbay yard. Eugene, the owner, is a member on here.

I presume you have seen this: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?p=347726#post347726

And don't mind that feckin' Joker, my Batphone got flooded 20Nm south of Gigha on Saturday.

No, Hiberdian. Love her, but waiting for the lads to get final word back from the owner. What do you think of the Yarmar 315hp setup in her?

I have no idea - but a quick search suggests that Yanmar blocks suffer from excessive corrosion and that there is noticable turbo lag on the 315. The Bravo 2 legs don't seem to get bad press (the Yanmar 315/Bravo 3 leg combo was a dog) but check does it have a cooling shower fitted to the leg?

I had a Bravo 2 attached to a 5.7 Merc Petrol. It's a good outdrive, basic single prop set-up designed to throw a bigger dia prop. The Bravo 3 is duo-prop which brings added complexity.

Yeah i noticed the lag, but not really an issue for my intended use. What is a cooling shower? Do you know the boat Willk?

I don't know the boat. A cooling shower is basically an S shaped pipe fitted to the transom that scoops water from below the hull (under way) and sprays it onto the upper part of the leg which tends to be above water level, thus avoiding potential overheating of leg components.

Showers were said to prolong life in Bravo 3 units. May not be a biggie in 2's.

What part of the country are you in?
