Thanks for your thoughts and all taken on board.I was looking at something a little bigger as i currently have a Pheonix sib 3.4m and although its in great condition ect with five in its a little snug,(it is rated for 5 adults).
Transporting it isnt a problem as i am fortunate to have a Toyota Hilux with my job so loads of room.
When it will be used mainly in Cornwall the site is on the beach so its a short pull 150m on to the beach then the 5 off us to pull it on its wheels to the sea 20m.Once inflated it sits at the side of the caravan each night untill we head for home 2 weeks later.
The engine thing is purely down to my lack of knowledge as my pheonix came with a 15hp long shaft which i then found out should have been a short shaft.Then a 30 short shaft mariner came up from a friend of a friend,For me to then find my pheonix with no plate on should only be a 20hp max
The engine is brilliant so i want to keep it this is why i was looking at the upgrade to a larger boat.I was sort of hoping mine would be worth £300 approx so that the Prowave only stood me at approx £700ish.
Im not set on a new boat and if a decent used one came up then even better just that these seem good value for the money.
Oh and im learning all the time.
