If you had 10k to spend what would you buy?

If you had £8k to £12k to spend on a Rib, what would you do?

Buy an old 5.4 Mtr searider, strap a new 90 HP Yam to the back, get a new trailor and some electrics. You don't get a lot for £10000 in the boating world.

And even if your boating budget starts at 10k, it never ends there!

Damn Biggles, you beat me to it....

Actually, I'd buy a full 5.4m searider package on Ebay that I could use while I waited for the new motor to arrive and recoup half the cost of the searider by selling the original motor when the new one's fitted.

For some reason SR5.4's seem to sell for a lot less than the sum of hull+motor& gear at the moment.

Which would appear to be the same as this. A bargain I reckon.
