Some of us don't have unlimited budgets for fuel

I guess even if its inefficient with fuel, I wont really notice much difference as they all guzzle it anyway!

My rib flat out uses 80 l/hr - so about 18.1 g/hr ... similar as what was quoted for xr2 above

Mind you, if I get that boat for 4k, instead of 7-8k that I was hoping to spend... it means I have a spare 3-4k for fuel .... should last at least a weekend!

Turbines Turbines - way to go boys still under $2.00 a gallon
I loved the MTT coupled to the 2.5 Leg. I'll have one of those when somebody puts it in production.

The first ones nice, but - a bit red

Others have what look like really old engines - I have no idea on ages, and performances of the older engines.. but I dont want to go buy somethings thats going to be a load of rubbish :S
Been there and done that - no not with the rib!

Hello Benc

I would also look for a larger Fletcher ( off course ).

170 Arrowbeau
181 Classic
199 Arrowshaft ( often just called 20 or 19 Bravo)
21 Arrowbolt

More comfort, a bit less speed than the Phantoms...

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F88497/
http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F97503/
http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F95234/ ( no engine )



Regarding fuel consumption, It is my experience that the weight of the boat is MUCH more important than the age of the engine.

Any of the mentioned hard boats will be much more fuel efficient than you RIB, du to one engine, lighter weight etc.

you can check the engines ( Merc/mariner) age here:
www.marinepower.com - you need the engines serial No.

Disregardless of the engines age, you should take the boat for a testdrive to check out the engines running behavior.
- you should have some reference since you allready a outboard owner.

Hop you find the right one

seating one behind the other with enclosed sides, greatly reduces the cockpit opening area

Its in your price range and looks like a really nice boat.

Just rip the carpet out and put some black stuff in there and then it will be a nice balance of red, black and white.

Assuming its as nice as it looks in the pics I dont reckon you will do much better!!! You could spend a fair bit less but you will end up with a tatty rig and in no time at all you will have spent more that the difference on tidying it up to try and get it as nice. Either that or just get a cheap tatty rig don't worry about tidying it up and just have fun in it.

That said this is a really nice rig and belongs to a Dangerous on this forum:
