Thanks for the replies so far...

I've done some initial research on the PowerBoat Level 2 course and will be doing that shortly.

I'd be looking to keep the Rib at home in the garage or local to me. I have access to a large transport yard with storage indoor. It's only 5mins from home.

Usage wise we spend a lot of time on Jersey (holidays) and Anglesey and Windermere. We also have plans to visit Cornwall etc. I'd love to have something capable of a trip to Les Echrous or Les Minquires from Jersey and something capable of exploring the Cornish coast. I realise I won't be doing this straight away and will be gaining experience first.

Got a Rav 4 at the moment which will tow ok. Im a Mechanical engineer so happy to work on the boat if that's allowed? I'm used to expensive hobbies, have held a pilots licence for 7 years and spent a small fortune on flying. Nothing flash, just a 2 seater permit aircraft.

There are only 2 of us so I don't need something with lots of seats.

No idea on what I need to look at budget wise, what do you reckon from the above?

I drive arctics in a regular basis aswell (another hobby) so towing a trailer shouldn't be too taxing,hopefully
