4 to 5m RIB Wanted: Pacific NW

This evil forum has convinced me that I need a RIB. I'd like to get my feet wet, so to speak, with a smaller 4 to 5-meter boat. Hypalon tubes, commercial/mil model (Avon Searider, Zodiac Hurricane, or similar), in good condition. With trailer and motor preferred. I'm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Thanks in advance for any leads.

HF

HF--

I assume you've seen these guys to your north a bit:

They had a 16 foot Polaris for a reasonable price the other day--looks like it sold.

Also, Boater's World in Bellevue is going out of business and had some new Avons and Zodiacs on the floor when I was in there last week.

This one looks interesting too--especially because of the motor:

Good luck in your hunt, I found my Avon Adventure D5.6 on Craig's List--and have been happy with it.

If you are interested in the one near Forest Grove, I can stop by and take some more photos of it. I work in that area.
