nice looking boat, not really built for the rough stuff as we painfully found out!!! for that sort of money, you could have a 5.3 ribcraft in the same colours and similar layout with a far far more superior build quality!!

most probably looking at a 115 but maybe a 100!

it will be more for skiing/fishing than any serious wave bouncing as i am banned from that after breaking our last rib...

any more details on the humber then...

They are great boats, had great fun with it, we have moved up to a 620 which has the extra length making it more stable and comfortable in the rough stuff.

We also found that with the honda 90 we were a bit stern heavy so either a 2 stroke or bigger boat.

But which ever Avon you buy you'll sure have fun.
