I will have to pick carefully and plan any trips that feature the motorhome. The intention would be to find a suitable base and use the boat as an alternative to the car as a means of getting around. The base would need to feature a suitable launching site.

I see there are RIBS avaialble with their own folding wheels for launching. They are a little odd looking and heavy I would think. A Remote control powered trailer is another possibility I suppose.

Ballistic have a very active e-marketing regime. What are the thoughts on the product?

Also do many RIB manufacturers cater for bespoke seating arrangements. It seems that most boats of the 6M size are built to seat as many people as possible. I dont see myself with more than six people on board very often and I would like a little deck space. For instance with the Humber Leisure Pro 6.5 I would prefer to see a pair of seats at the console allowing some space between it and the rear bench seat.

cheers

If you are having a boat built to order, most of the manufacturers will build to your spec, the worlds your lobster. Obviously buying second hand is a different matter. You could change the seating on a second hand boat but it gets messy & expensive.
