I suppose the 620 IS more leisure based whereas Humber lean towards the dive market.
Yeah thats correct and no ones saying that Avons are inferior in any way to the Humber, if the new Avons are as good and up to the same standard as the older one's then we should see them lasting the test of time, though doubt much thought has really gone into producing a boat that will these days last 20 years as we seem to live in a throw awayable society these days.
I'd give my right arm to own either of these two boats at this very moment, but if i were a buyer and had the money to buy new, and based on what i'd experienced so far of the two particular ribs and taking into account what i'd want to do with the boat, i'd be buying the Humber
