Welcome to RIBnet
For a grand you may be best with a SIB, although you can sometimes pick up a 4m Avon Searider for about a 1500 quid.

thanks for the reply.
A rib has a proper hull and it's just the glued on tubes that inflate. A sib (or inflatable) has a removable floor and the whole boat can be packed into bags.
