The Attaque in the pic above would be around 1980ish vintage and was 5m long.
As you can see we are sitting on the tubes knee to knee. I am with Jono on this one and would rather have the extra width

I wonder - was the Attaque the "non commercial" name for the Seasafe? Or did they rename it sometime in '79?

Agreed the extra width would be good, but any wider than 2m & I couldn't store it!

Thanks for the info. Pleased people think its a good hull. A bit more width would be good but would also mean quite a bit more cash so am still very keen on the 2m beam.

Think am going to go for a Tohatsu 90 TLDI as seem to have a good reputation and 1k cheaper than an etec.

Hoping to keep the weight down too so won't need a braked trailer too.

Is there anything in the fit-out I should spend a bit more on rather than just getting the standard/cheapest version - Auto bilge, better steering/throttle cables, etc?

Depends on whether you are getting the boat built or doing it yourself.
On a Humber I would recommend the anchor locker and wear patches on the tube tops. I also like getting the bow triple strake, had it retro fitted to the Assault and from new on the new Destroyer (see build thread for pics) it really reinforced the bow, handy up here when you sometimes need to buffer under power to vertical barnacled up rocks to get folk on and off the boat in remote areas, without puncturing the tubes! Its now a must have feature on any RIB of mine.
The standard console is very tight for space, would recommend the larger deluxe version and a console mounted fuel tank on a boat this size to save deck space.
If you are thinking on a 90, ribcraft were selling XL suzis very cheap, had mine will all rigging kit for less than 4.5k including PDI, plus an XL transom never goes wrong!
Bilge pump is 20 plus a 2 switch off ebay, With the supplied mounting bracket it just fits in the well, no need for anything more complicated in such a small boat unless you intend to leave it moored.

Probably going to get a local dealer to do the fit out as long as not too pricey. Was thinking something like these pics.

Think this is sports console and would potentially add a 70L console fuel tank and a second single jockey seat like in the pic.

Can tube wear patches be added yourself or is it worth getting them to stick them on?

That was a bargain on the suzuki! Want to keep the weight down so limited to 2stroke, both the Tohatsu and etec are 145kg and can hopefully get a tohatsu good price.

It a couple of hundred for wear patches from Humber, if going for a dealer then Jono is probably your man as you get the best of both worlds.
I wouldn't buy the Bramber trailer that Humber supply, you will get a much better trailer and price if you buy seperately, even the guys at Humber admitted they were pants to me.
De Graaf or Indespension would be my choice but others may have other trailer manufacturers to recommend as well.
If you are unfamiliar with the various hulls a visit to the showroom in Hull is recommended as they will let you try various seats and consoles in hulls to see what layout you want.

Sports console is a nice console, most of our boats go out with a that console and a plastic 91lt console tank.

Any one can put your wear patches on but I would let humbers do while it is new.

I've got the two man version of this

http://www.ribworld.co.uk/ribs-detail.asp?testid=183

console on mine - Not a lot of space for instrumentation. Not sure I'd go for it if I was buying new. be aware you can't get a Hulk 30L under it, but you can get proably 3 of the 22L (5 gallon) ones in. I find 2 30L's sit across the rear under the engine nicely, but then I am cruising & not carrying a lot of dive gear so it's not a space I particualrly miss, and is more useful as fuel storage to me.

As for the trailer, I could also go unbraked, but decded to go with brakes to future proof against some random super modern lighweight car I may buy in the future. Also brakes are useful down the hill to Largs! Snipe (now owned by Mersea Trailers) are another one I would recommend - they did me a shortened drawbar version of the R750 (smallest braked swing beam), so it fits in my garage! Worth giving them a look. If you want pics I'll need to wait 'till the end of the week.

Thanks for advice. Going up to humber to have a look round early next week. Are pressure release valves necessary on the orange tubes? Is it worth getting them fitted anyway? Think they are approx 200.
