I'm afraid it's an academic query at the moment. I'd like to move up to something with a side-by-side console eventually, in the 6 to 6.5 category. But I haven't got 16 grand knocking around right now!

It's a shame as that is a lovely hull and boat, if I had the money I would be there in a flash, same seats and console as ours but the hull is much wider and even better sea going capabilities

That would make a great package

I can settle this debate.

I was in the office when a nice bloke put a deposit on it. It's in excellent condition - first to view bought

Agree- I weighed mine once, pretty full on fuel and came to 1540, was surprised thought it would be lighter. My 2.0d tows it well though.

My estimate was 1500. Maybe my rigging estimate was low?

I really like the look of Redbays. I prefer a more 'commercial' look. Like Humber's.
