Not quite a boat but I got my console off Laurence and he was very helpful.
I think a couple of members have XS Ribs and all seem happy with them.

if i wanted to spend 3k on a sib it would be that old favourite, the Bombard 380 aerotec and a 15 hp 2 stroke engine.

you ever tried to carry a f20 any distance!

BMC - boats, not cars!

Barnet Marine - good, Lawrence - one of the good guys I have no idea about those SIBs though.

i recon that they have been in the inflatable boat buisness at least since the late 1970s know they used to supply a lot of diving clubs with inflatable boats /trailers before r.i.bs were popular .,Astra you have the same problem as me i dont have any off street parking now ,i have a massive back garden but no access to it ,,it never bothered me in the past as i rented a large yard and building just over my garden wall to keep my boats in ,, i once stored a brand new atlantic 75 lifeboat and even kept a mersey class lifeboat there overnight once , but the owner ,,needed the buildings back after 25 years,, so when i use my s.i.b it now has to go through a 3 foot wide passageway between the houses ,,including the trailer which has a small jocky wheel on the side so i can stand it up and wheel it through into the street ,

Yes i no it sucks but at least you have a tow bar,can anyone comment on the top speed of the al360 with a 20hp outboard and will it be capable of towing a ringo,Many thanks for the help already.
