i can understand your predicament, all i can do is give you info of what i thought of mine, b------s
enclosed are some pics of mine,
the first thing i really noticed was how bad it was in the rough, I mean 2 foot waves threw it all over the place, the hull was very thin, coupled with the outhill fixtures and fitting which in my opinion were also made of paper, the seats i chose were so soft, you could (scuse the pun) bottom out. it was an awfull boat, very noisy, slappy, and not at all a capable rough water rib, you could almost hear every droplet of water to hit the hull, it was terrible. Engine was superb tho, 45 knots if you dared.
overall i would not want to take it wavejumping as i could not trust it, it was not what i was looking for.so i sold it with 8 hours on it!!
Also i found the rubbing strake just peeled off, for a new boat!!!
what is your upper budget???
