Hi from the sunny Midlands

Hi Folks,
Just saying hello from the sunny Midlands.
I've been around boats most of my life (37yrs) and now decided to look into RIB ownership.
A have a few questions if I may please:

1. I've narrowed down to two main manufactures - Humber and Avon. Can you add anymore that can match the build quality of the foremost mentioned. Opinions of the above appreciated.

2. Typical costs of a re-tube (4 to 5m) How long do they last? Any specific material I should steer clear of etc.

3. Boat size that are easy to launch - Would the difference between 4 - 5m be substantial with regards to weight and running costs?

Thanks in advance.
