Looking for boat

I have 2000 to spend on a boat, I have been looking at a new Honwave T38 IE V Floor plus Honda BF 5 SU. as at package at 1600

I want it to cruise the local river and get it into bays on the East Coast of England.

Value your thoughts on best packages open to me for that price, and experiences of the type of boating I will be doing.

After much consideration , last year I bought a Honwave T3.8 IE with 15hp engine. Can't recommend them enough. Sailed out of Whitby last August and went to Robin Hoods Bay. Boat flew and the kids were screaming all the way home... great fun.

Just one word of warning, as someones tag says (sorry, can't remember name at mo) ... a boat is a hole in the water that you keep throwing money into. I.E remeber the extras such as lifejackets, anchors, ropes, VHF, etc , etc

Many thanks for that - how spooky I have a home between Whitby and Robin hoods bay and that is exactly where it will be used - not too far out = I know what you mean been collecting the lifejackets VHF etc during winter and look like I will strike for the boat next month. Out of interest did you launch from the slip in Whitby harbour

Jake, now that you're hooked, it'll only get worse.

I thought HRH Prince Phillip said that?

However, I think I know where my confusion arose

Are our brethren from South Island, NZ not nearer the Southern chilly bits?

Nope, you're right. 5 degrees in it.

In all fairness, the Award probably could be claimed by wossisface - IanHappy.

You'd get a 4m rib for that money. Any reason why you're thinking inflatable?
