As some of you may know I am changing from my 4m SIB to a 3.5m RIB. I have spotted a few and this one is close and in my price range. He is wanting £600 for the boat, the trailer, console and electrics but no motor. I have already got my trusty 25hp tohatsu 2 stroke (soon to be 30hp when it goes for its service).
I am just a bit worried about the age and the signs of wear. Is that year of avons any good? Or is it a bit past its sell by date? am not bothered about aesthetics, just performance and good longevity. So what are these like as boats?
And the big question; what speed would you expect from this boat with a 30hp 2 stroke? Fast enough to keep up with the rib cruises?

Also, What should I expect to sell my honwave t40 2006 for? It is in pretty much immaculate condition except a few scuffs. So no patches or anything.
