Thanks again Ian.
I've had a look at that on ebay before. Wonder if the wife likes diving? lol

I think I may go and have a look at the second one on B&O.

I think GraemeCooper may have gone and looked at that one but rejected it because he wanted a smaller boat.Might be worth PMing him.

The last one you linked to is a 5.4 with a 75hp... Good boat and price too!

I wouldn't entertain 25hp on one. They are an animal with 40 or 50, but I suspect wouldn't handle rough weather too well with 25hp as it'd take a long time to empty the flooding hull.
Sorry mate, missed your post.

I thought 25hp wouldn't pull the wife out of bed. Saying that though, I roll over twice and I'm still on top.... Only joking love incase you read this

Cheers mate.

Yep thats it. JSP, PM if you're interested. Not after anywhere near 3500 either.

Seariders are a very good choice, you can pick them up pretty cheaply, and they're much better quality than those flatacrafts and narwhals you see for a similar price. Although not the best looking boats they're awesome fun, and I will be getting another after uni, or when I have more cash.

You could always weigh in the console and put the proceeds towards a nice GRP replacement.
That's not a bad looking SR4 and a tidy oil injected Mariner 40 too

Not a bad idea and would still be a cheap RIB

Samt you have a PM mate.

And thanks for the suggestions folks. I still like the look of that 5.5 with the 70HP though.

Another question for you all. What should I expect for fuel costs on a 40, 50 or 75hp?
I was going to ask about insurance cover but I expect a search of the forums would be best.

Cheers.

SR4 with a 50 would give you a good day out on 8-10 gallons.
