most of the complete pacakge prices I have seen come to around 8.5 K, so a second hand set up maybe the way to go... just wondered if anyone had experience of that Humber 5m Sea Pro rib..?
Thanks for the reply..
I looked at a humber 5m and liked it very much . I don't think you would get any of these boats (valiant ,ribcraft, or humber ) for 8.5 k ready to go brand new with engine and trailer unless prices have dropped a lot for the end of season . Finding any of them second hand takes effort they are in damand and fetch good prices . 5 year old boats in good condition are all over 6k if they are any good .

I saw my valiant offered new as a package minus trailer with cheaper engine for about 9k add a trailer and more seating plus the engine you would prefer and its more like 12k

I was also wondering if anyone had views on XS ribs?
They seem on a similar price to Ribcraft..
