how fast do outboards go?

Hi Guys,

I am new here

I am very glad that i found these forums

I got some questions that i hope you can please answer

I am looking to buy a brand new inflatable or a RIB and looking to get an outboard, how many MPH does say a 2HP outboard go?

How much does say a 1HP outboard go when moving say 1 person of 80KG?

I heard you can now get electric powered outboards, are they any good, fast?

One other thing, with a RIB do you inflate them yourself? Or is that only with inflatables.

You know in whitewater rafting are those boats inflatables or RIBS?

I am looking to buy brand new only.

Really, i only want either of these boats for moving in calm water, up and down a bay, probably max 30 miles each way, and only want to go at a speed around fifteen miles, and carry 5-8 passengers.

If you can please get back to me with some answers, sorry if i asked a lot,

any help much appreciated

Many many thanks

Hi guys,

Many thanks for your reply

I have been looking at some of those ribs

I tried registering to the forums at ribnet but there site is down i guess for site maintenance.

I have been doing some research, i noticed that an outboard to move a long five people you will need a 30-35HP, do you know how many miles per hour you would be getting with five people on board with say a 30HP.

My plan is actually to have either a rib, pontoon or inflatable that can carry ten passengers moving at 15 miles per hour. What kind of setup would be safe, reliable, and cheap?

TIA

Hell 8-10 people is this a commercial venture?

If its a RIB I would think a 750 to 900 with a min 90hp O/B. New you must be looking at around £28- 35K.

Sounds from you're knowledge like you need to go and speek with a boat dealer and look over boats that meet your needs.

Seriously - Don't go out to sea with 1 or 2 hp on tap and definately do not take anyone with you if you ever think it a good idea !!!!! With tide and wind you 'will' be going backwards.

750 to a 900 won't be moving much with a 90hp and 10 people in it!

Rib.net is back online. Pop over and ask some questions.

I haven't got a RIB I've got 135hp and I don't carry 10 people - I am therefore guessing!!

7.5 metre & 9 metre length overall. You will need the deck area to get this number of seats in. Plus each person will need an expensive lifejacket.

keep me posted how you get on boatyman! I'm looking to acheive similar miracles this season with my boat with similar horsepower. Only I'm planning to travel a little further. Seems to be a lack of crap outboards on the market and charter opportunities here so I'm off to ferret pastures new where I can relax well out of reach of the MCA.
