Hmmm, You need a hardy wee RIB with an auxiliary. I'm sure I've seen one somewhere...

Leave out the kiosks and aft sofas and your boys can make a smart looking boat.

I have the same sofa. It is actually a GRP locker with a comfy lid. Clips out in 60 seconds if you need the deck space. I kept mine out last season for diving etc., and in this year for the longer cruises. It's very useful, in or out

I picked that photo 'cos I knew you'd like the colour scheme...

Very practical.

There's a Stormforce 6.5 down at Mylor marina, it's a good looking rig.

I'm being nice, I think.

So it would seem. But don't write it off just yet, it's like healthy food, there's no instant gratification.

Tell you what, I'll go for a cuppa and you sell him an Osprey while I'm gone...

Perhaps consider a cobra 6.6m if it's for leisure.
