Yeah - I think I'd want a bit more boat for my £4k. Can't imagine what that one would be like with a few people and their kit on board (plus fuel tank, battery, etc.....)

What's a Hawser and where would I find it on my RIB????

So if I get myself a Hawser I'll be able to use my RIB outside of Studland Bay!

£4400 set up the same as that one or £3600 without the console.

Hence the term "nipper", for ever in Hampshire slang.

Hope that's good for you nipper.
Had forgotten that!
