I'll be at Ribex in a few weeks so I guess there'll be a few new ones there, but I'd prefer 2nd hand as it'll be a lower risk if the kids trash/sink it!
I looked everywhere, and found the best bargains were in the local freeads type papers, but being based near the solent helped in that respect.
The other option is boat jumbles, which I enjoy anyway.
I didn't rush my purchase and kept an eye out for a while. However I was lucky that I ended up buying from a good friend. The engine came seperate requiring some work, and came from the ads on Rib.net.
There will be lots for sale at Beaulieu on Sunday, although they are a little more pricey than they will be at smaller local jumbles.
Good luck, if your kids enjoy it as much as mine do it will be worth it.
