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.

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.
