"B"
It would be great to compile a list of all the Riptide models and their HP.
A bit of history on Riptide would be great to research.

Yes I can!

Following are copies of Sales Brochure. Just love the touch up to monochrome photography to provide that "Living Colour"

Every person in this is from the Family.

Yep I'm most happy to give you all you want. But my Riptide is at the back of one of those rented storage sheds and it's impossible for meto get at it until I empty it out which I do this winter. by copy I mean maybe could you email me a high resolution copy of it so I can read and look at it in more detail.

Welcome to the board Capt.
Which model is your Riptide? The museum at Lochsport is no longer operating, What are you after and where are you. Collector Inspector is a wealth of info on these.. mine is a 7.5.

Sent to our Webmaster
Thanks for the warm welcome David & C.I., sorry about the delay , my life gets in the way of my hobbies, Here's some Picy's from lot's of angles to help you to I.D. the beast.
I haven't washed it down yet but I had a quick lok fro Model & or Engine No's with no luck, can you tell me where to look please.
I'm located near Kilcoy in South East Qld. a nice small  country town , we escaped the big smoke about 5 yrs ago.
Where are you at David , & C.I. , Ive got rello's in Perth, which could come in handy down the track.
My Riptide has a carby on it that doesn't look original although it might be & the prop has a nasty chunk missing from one fo the blades , It's about 16 mm in size in a triangular shape.
Do you think I could get away with getting it alloy welded and reshaping it myself , (I worked with metal for yrs)
The paint job on the tank looks original yellow as I can't see any signs of an undercoat.
 That's it for now , Thanks Again , Capt'n Sandbar.
