Welcome to Ribnet.

If you want to fit it in an 8 foot trailer you want a SIB (with an inflatable or removable floor), not a rib unless you buy an F-Rib. What exactly are you going to use it for?

There's no such thing as a cheap boat though, and a cheap motor is never cheap to keep going.

At 8ft, as NOS has said you're looking at a SIB, not a RIB. RIB's have solid hulls, SIBs are collapsible and generally fit in a car boot when deflated or on the roof rack.

See the sticky page on choosing a SIB

Stay well away from 'cheap' outboards. They are cheap for a reason. As a non-boater I'd get one from a dealer 2nd hand with a warranty as you're unlikely to know what to look for in a good/bad engine.

What car do you have morgy? Do you specifically not want the boat in/on the car and in the trailer?

The trailer will probably add more expense and faff than it's worth.

Matt's waveline bundle sounds a good offer. The boat alone is 399 new.
