We have a WM 275 Rib. 9 feet. No issues in 3 years. Has a 10 hp fuel injected Suzuki which has also been flawless if not a little heavy.

I just picked up my WM RIB 350 the other day. I plan to outfit it with a console and a bench seat I got off of craigslist. I am planning to put a 20HP Yamaha on it.

I have owned a half dozen of RIBs and I have a 10 foot Avon high pressure floor model and a 21 foot Zodiac Hurricane. My worst experience with with a Zodiac 380 which the glue was separating from the bolt rope.

Well bits and pieces are starting to come in for the dinghy conversion.

Picked up a used 20HP Yamaha that I think will work well with this setup.
