Definately scrounge some demos. There's plenty of people on these very forums that will be more than willing to take you out on their boat. Maybe this is time for Keith to offer a SIB demo to try to convert you to the ways of the smaller boat!

Have now got a brand new Narwhal 4.5 m Blue Rib, with console, steering and A frame for sale. Boat is a replacement for my old one but have since replaced it with a Coastline 6.5m so am keen to sell it asap. Retail is over 4,250 but would let it go for 3k.
Can also supply a second hand Yamaha 2 stroke 60hp or a discount on any Honda, depending on budget. This was my first boat and as a starter it was more than adequate.

Hi not sure what level of experience you have but an RYA course with a school that have a good range of boats is always a good idea. A good instructor who has a lot of experience with a range of boats should be able to help you with some advice and you can alway check what they say on this forum. If you ar egoing to be spending several thousand on a boat I think that the best place to start is to get some good hands on experience using other peoples boats.

an RYA pb 2 course can cost any where between 100 and 500 so have a good luck around. If you have more experience take the advanced course. Saftey and knowlege are the key to good confident fun in boats.
