gone mad this weekend ordered a new rib

after increaseing bugets endless hunting i gave up looking for a second hand boat so i went and ordered
a new boat the wife is going to kill me
i picked a vailant vanguard v450 it will suit the family better than jockey seat set up. and no one seemed to say any think bad about vailant as my buget was for ever going up i just could not find the money for a 50hp so my engine
choice was a mariner 40 hp two stroke with power trim and key start
i must be mad the dealer is going to fit a compass rev counter ice box seat thing for free comes with 5 year warranty on the boat 2 years on the engine
fares are free anchor is free trailer is free and it was very cheap under the price of most second hand 4.5m from a large number of dealers can pick it up in two weeks hope to get some pic soon

Great news Daniel! You did a lot of homework on this one and it's paid off - the Valiant will be perfect for your requirements. Let me know when it arrives and hopefully Bilge Rat and myself will be able to accompany you on your maiden voyage
