A 15 year old did it last year on an SR4 with a Yam 40hp

But it depends on the weather

Well that's funny, because I am 15!

What weather conditions would be too much for it to come along (I am not too bothered about a uncomfortable ride )

Sea state will be important (wave height). I would have said "smooth" (up to 0.5 metre) or "slight" (up to 1.25m) would be ok. But I'm not a sr4 expert, others will be able to advise better than me what you and a sr4 could cope with.

Have you bought the Northamptonshire Avon SR4, it looks like it sold this afternoon.

No, bit gutted but hey, there is tons of them on the market. I just don't know if 2000 is enough to get a decent one or whether it is well worth saving up the extra few hundred? The Northamptonshire one, would you say it was a good standard? Because what i don't want to do is dig my self into a money pit.

I would rather invest the money so it lasts. So what do you think?

Persuade someone who knows SR4s to go along with you.

Lots of people on here are very knowledgeable about SR4's and are happy to give advice. I would have struggled deciding which one to buy without their help.

hmm. I know what you mean. But, is 2k, just too little to spend. I am talking in general terms here as in not just a random bargin which is actually worth 3k. Do you know what I mean? It is hard to explain!
