For 25k you could probably have a new 6.5m Osprey Vipermax specced up exactly as you want it but with a second hand engine.

Why not jump on a RIB with spare seats for the Round Island for Macmillan at the end of the month. If the weathers good there will probably be 50+ RIBS to look at and chat to the owners.

Round Isle of Wight for Macmillan Cancer Support-Sunday 26th May 2013

If you ask on the thread for a seat you'll probably get a few offers

Just a thought: Redbay 650 Cabin Rib

A "drop in" bench seat can be added...

I'm liking that!....no helm looks at the plotter..they are looking ahead while the crew watch the plotter... :-)
