New to bigger boats some advice if poss?
Hi we have been using a 3.8 m inflatable hull QS with a merc 25hp around Ramsey Sound (Pembrokeshire) for about 12 years....
Just completed a Powerboat 2 Course with Len Bateman out of Milford Haven in a 6.5 Solent with a Suzuki 140... Excellent course by the way good bloke..
I am now looking for a "proper" bit of kit so that we can explore a little further a field and can cope with the conditions.
At the moment my thoughts are 6-6.5m with a 140-150 on the back... want to pay between £8-14k.... does this make sense??
Also in looking around I am looking at a Picton Cobra 6.5m c2004 with a Hond 4 with 85 hours
anyone have any views on this would be much appreciated.
In reality despite owning the small boat and running it around I am very much a beginner and have not owned a "permanant" boat before
