As i have said in other posts I felt the valiant was good value for money as you like, me are on a tight budget to get a decent boat . the humber is better quality for sure .
Yes the valiant could be retubed but you shouldn't need to for many years .
As A guide my 4.9 with df 70 suzuki and trailer was worth about £6000 , humbers etc in that price range were older with old 2 stroke motors
If you could find a couple of thousand more then the choice is much greater .
Nos4's sea rider is a very solid boat but with a newish motor would still fetch above your budget .
I didn't want a boat or engine that needed work and the Valiant quality is fine for family and leisure use
