You'll find plenty of thoughts about Brig as a company, if not the specific model, by searching the forum. There are however some seemingly* happy owners in the UK who bought a cheap boat with the expectations that it would be a cheap boat.

* I always treat with suspicion owners reviews as rarely does anyone post up saying "I just made a terrible mistake".

I don't think I'm very good at searching the forum Poly. I'm thinking of getting a Brig too so any genuine experience of them would be useful, but searching produces nothing, which I guess is what the OP has found too.

Sometimes, no news is bad news. There is a USA based repair guy on here who has had bad experiences sticking them back together again:

Brig Heavy-duty HD410, HD460 - how good are they?

My personal opinion, and it's just personal, and it's just an opinion, is that they are a pile of poo...

Good link, cheers willk. No reason for me to buy one apart from liking the seating layout of one particular boat so the search continues...
