Greetings from Frodsham and welcome to Ribnet
To be honest, I'm suprised you haven't received more 'feedback' from the community regarding your choice of Rib. Certain manufacturers attract a lot of generally negative comment on here and Brig consistently achieve a table-topping position in the European Champions League on that basis.
As with most investments of this nature there are a load of variables in play that will determine your choice; fashion, trends, looks, useability, build quality, fitness for purpose (what are you intending to use the boat for), manufacturer's reputation, word-of-mouth, re-sale value, etc, etc which are all factored into the mix and you eventually arrive at what YOU think it's worth paying, but there are many experienced people on here who will point you in the direction of a number of alternatives you should consider before deciding to buy a Brig.
If you've thoroughly researched the market, carefully considered what you want to use the Rib for and decided a Brig is for you, buy it, enjoy it and be proud to own it but there's a world of difference between bay-hopping around Anglesey on a flat-calm sunny day and bashing across to the Isle of Man.
All I would say is, before you commit your hard-earned, have you compared it with other similar-sized boats such as, in no particular order, Ribcraft, Osprey and Ribquest?
I look forward to meeting you out and about around the Straits sometime soon.
