female in distress! can you help

A friend of mine has looked at a 4.9m Bombard Explorer 1996 with 60hp Mercury for 5,000 is this a good price?

Do any of you have any ribs for sale that are cheap and cheerful for mother and kids to use to potter around the Bosham harbour and east head (must be in good nick!!) If there is something cheaper she would prefer it!

email Mary-Lou on louisec@juiceworld.net

Crazy Horse please give me your advise!!

Thanks Lads! I cant help her! I know nothing about small ribs but know you lot might - The Oracle of RibWorld!!

Fi Im no expert on Open ribs,I like the build of Ribcraft,Humber,Avon,Ribtec,Zodiac. All these boats if in good nick are worth having.

I will have a quick look around and get back to you.Both boats and outboards is a good site as is on here,But before you buy anything,we can put it through the feelings of rib net,so as to make it unbiased and way up all the pros and cons up.
