The early stages of finding a new boat have begun, we lasted nearly a week of being boatless before starting to look around.
Any ideas would be most welcome, the criteria are:-
We use our RIBs a lot, >300 days a year and the shortest trip would be 10 miles.
With the overfalls and big tides the boat needs to take a bit of sea, be agile at all speeds and capable of making passages of 60nm in a range of weather. I guess this also implies a minimum size of 6.5m?
Both training and surveying require a bit of deck space, room to move around carrying equipment.
What should be on the list?
