Hi joined a while back and have been lurking and taking in all the info in the threads...and theres a hell of a lot to read.
I have a Quicksilver inflatable with a 6hp mariner....its a tender to my boat, I am now looking for a 5 to 6m RIB with 60hp+ outboard.
I'm looking for more of a social seating boat rather than an all out channel crosser, i.e central jocky seat, main playground in the River Hamble and out into the Solent IoW.
I have about £8k to spend and was wondering what I should get, so far checked out the Bombard SB530 & 550, Valiant V520, Ribeye (out of my price range) and some others that I've not heard of but thats to lack of experience.
Like the Bombard / Valiant ribs but will take any advice from any experts on here.
