ah ok I have 5.6 osprey eagle with a 130 Yamaha that I'm thinking of selling but with your budget you will get better good luck with the hunt. may I suggest if your planning on taking 4 or more out a 6 metre may be more comfortable

Ive just been looking at this on gumtree (uk) i think some thing like this would be awesome and yes it would be for me and the wife and her 2 and my 2 when i have them (all kids no older than 11 so good for weight) do you think a honda 90 4 stroke will be a bit under powered for a ribtec 585

Many thanks ian

We used to take a 3.8m rib with 40hp yamaha out from the north east coast regularly so in the right conditions a 4.7 should be fine
We've used Seaham Hartlepool Sunderland the Tyne Beadnell and probably others I've forgotten
You just need to be aware it's a big sea and a small boat be sensible about conditions and safety and you'll be fine
