remember we are talking about ENGLISH pounds.
i could get a perfectly adequate sib for below 1k.
anyway, the main reason for wanting to convert to a sib is accessability.
i live in a small house with no space to keep a rib, at the moment its sitting on its mooring with a buggered engine which i can do nothing about.
i just want something to stick on the roofrack that i can keep in my shed.
also the searider is bl**dy thirsty! like codprawn said his honda uses less than his strimmer, even if it is the wrong engine!
also twitchy stearing, feeling like its going 100mph.....its a boat not an armchair!
thanks for the replies.
