next boat ideas

I love my scorpion, but after an amazing run out at the weekend ive come to the conclusion its not the place for a 3 yr old little girl. So im starting research, basically i want something with the ride of a scorpion, the build of a scorpion(maybe ex wiring) with out without tubes thats has min max speed of 50mph and can cruise in majority of snotty stuff around the solent at more than 30knots like my scorpion. BUT more security for little one and more shelter from thw wind, so new boat or a nice foredeck and wrap aroung console for my rib..... preferably trailerable and the budgets 30k

any ideas??? rib or not rib

Budget makes it tight.

I would go for the Revenger 31 if money no object!!!

As it is an object maybe a walkaround like a White shark or a Cap cammarat but again price will be tight.

Looks like you MAY find a Cap camarat 755 for about 30k.

White shark..

Lots of people rate the White Sharks, but I found the flared bow and lack of steering lock makes them a pain to manouevre.. Handle alright but struggled in lumpy stuff..

Martin (ruby murry on here although not sure he sees this anymore) used to have a 650. was a great boat! 40 + kts and good ride. remember doing a RSMC time trial with him in it! you can take a man out of a race boat but you cant take the race boat out of a man!!

Didnt an 850 go RB08??
