I've put a deposit down on this....

After looking for a new RIB for a month or two... a chap on my site has decided to let his go....

I put a deposit on it on Sunday.... I'm having buyers remorse at the moment (the sick feeling you get when you spend your savings on something) so any positive comments would be great or negative feedback would also be appreciated....

2005 craft with 2005 engine. The engine is a 250hp and has less than 200 hours on, full service history and has been maintained religiously... its a 7.5m.. a rear bench seat can be fitted in the stern... What do you think ? Any idea's on price ?

Don't have! I always get that feeling especially if i have saved for something for a long time, but life has taught me a good lesson "memories are better than dreams!". So just be happy.

Pricewise, I saw a very ncie Osprey Vipermax in Wales with a 250hp Evinrude for about 20k asking price. There is a 6m one for just 11k asking price; similar features, just shorter and slightly smaller outboard.

So, tell us how much you have to see as "debit" in your next bank statement?!

Ahh, the dilemma! Do you feel disappointed or relieved? Ribbing, that emotional roller coaster
