Mums the word.
Milk carton on order
I've dived DD a few times and gone about 20 miles offshore wreck diving out of Lyme in the Ribcraft. Looks a little too speedy for sib's tho'.

OH AND - Boat order cancelled !!!

When I was checking through the specs tying to find which shaft it needs I noticed that it weighs 83kgs GULP

Lord knows where I got the idea that it was lightweight from, 1 Lesson learnt = don't drink and then go internet shopping !!

Thats too much for 2 people to put up and down each day (or any day) and I'm determined to avoid trailering. Rose threatened me with lots of unspeakables when she found out that I had "...once again, over done it".
My RIB was supposed to be a 5mtr Humber with 40hp's and turned into a heavy weight 5.45 with a 125 on the back.

So I'm looking for an entire used package along the lines earlier suggestions, here come the classifieds.

Any more info on pumps, electric trollers, or boats for sale would be very appreciated.

Thanks All

NEWS - We've gone and done it (well some of it) , boat a bought , it's one of these -

Hydro-Force Sunsaille RIB Inflatable Boat at hydroforceboats.co.uk

it's a Sunsaille 3.8 mtr, hard floor and rated for up to 30hp. Not the most heavy duty I know but it's light and will hopefully suit our needs for a year or so. Please feel free to comment.

Now we are looking for a nice clean 15hp 2 stroke, for sensible money. It doesn't specify which shaft length is required and the distributor isn't answering the phone this weekend so I will contact them in the week, but I'm guessing it needs either a short or maybe std shaft.

Also I'm thinking of picking up one of these for around 150, does anyone here have experience with them ?

Hydro-Force Sealion Electric Trolling Outboard Motor 620W at hydroforceboats.co.uk

Also we've ordered a basic fishfinder. We have buoyancy aids, flares, and a hand held compass (just in case).

So now we need -
15hp OB, tank, and oil.
Launching wheels, but which ?
Battery and box for the trolling motor (and long leads so it can go in the bow).
Spare fuel can.
Rod holders.

What have we forgotten ??
Go on you know you want too ......

Thanks all
Handheld VHF?

RB I'm very pleased to hear you've cancelled the boat order. It went against all the advice on here really buying a new heavy "no-brand". If you wanted to go along those lines a Honwave 3.5 alloy floor around 850 new like mine is the heaviest (160lbs) and cheapest quality I'd buy. You can always sell the Honwaves on for a decent second had price.

Over the time since the advice was given there have been quite a few used outfits sold on Ebay for 1500 or less that would have suited you. With decent outboards and often elec pumps, transom wheels and more.

Keep looking on EBay and bid sober!

Are you at Wells next Sea?

Also you said 183lbs was way too heavy... you are only going to get down to 100lbs or so for the boat if you go air floor and I thought you'd decided against?? Most of the hard floors around 3.5m will be 160lbs or so.

This outfit will be light and fast, has everything to get started with pump and wheels. A few trips with this would soon tell you if it was right for you and it would be easy to trade out engine (if a 15 was too heavy) or boat (if you didn't like an air floor) at very little/no loss to get the right thing.
