Looking @ This RIB on E Bay

Hi Everybody

I am new to this forum, I am looking @ this Valiant RIB on E Bay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Valiant-Dynami...QQcmdZViewItem

& want to know what you think it is worth & if it is a good RIB ?

I have a Maxum 1800sx & want some thing a bit smaller that I can play with.

Thank for your help

RIBase
30 knots 4 up? Methinks he may be a tad economical with the truth?

Its probably the going price for such an item. But there is better to be had for near that sort of money.

Personally if I was going that size and already had a big boat I would want an inflatable that I could throw in the back of the car and a smaller engine that would make it all the more manageable. That one needs a trailer so if your going to tow you might as well go bigger.
