Great boats - I've owned two of them. Very well built. Had one up on rocks twice recently with full fuel and four big adults with barely a scrape to the gel-coat in one case and a small hole the other time. Tubes are original and air tight with just one patch. Other RIBs I've owned might have broken their backs in the same situation.
Highly recommended boats but if you're buying any old GRP hull you better check every bit of it is sound. Bad repairs and/or water seepage over time will destroy a hull from within.
