You want to be careful what you say Polly, or you'll be waking up with a horse's head in your bed.

someone who thinks fiat quality is still poor, lives in the past

but where getting offtopic.

9D280, you are right. The trailer would be to light to activate the brakes. The panda could handle 400KG unbraked. So i think i have to look voor a trailer without brakes, and stay underneath the 350-375KG

im not formiliar with he quality of Brig. But whit today eurpopian standards in cant be that bad. I like Avon to, but did not find any dealer yet here in the netherlands

Dude ofcourse are there Avon dealers in the Netherlands..... they make boats... not brig "boats". The quality of brig boats is definitely less than Avon... but you can see that in the price i guess. I see you live in Deventer, you are not often ribbing at sea? Than a brig may be a good choice but it the brig wont live long.. An Avon is after 15-20 years still in good condition. You can trow away the brig in 5-10 years...

But you have to chose for yourself...If I where you I bought an new Avon searider 4.0 with an 50hp yamaha.. But i think you first have to learn ribbing with a fast rib... It is totally different compared to a direct hand- motor steering system. (in Dutch we call it a "knuppelbesturing") And it is a lot faster than youre small sib.

I did find some avon dealers yes, but no pricelist yet. I cant believe that the quality of brig would be as low that you can trow away your boat after several years. But is agree, Avon looks like strong boats.

Im would not often (maybe never) take the rib to sea. I sail a lot more on the river (ijsel) and lake's. I know i have to learn "ribbing" first. That's why i dont want a super fast boat (25HP) max.
