Really stupid, try them both, only on the water will you see if it meets your needs. There may be peeps on here locally to you who have similar boats who could let you have a drive.

I have an assault, but have only been out a few times so have not tried it in the rough, but so far it's a great boat.

The Assault is not a deep V, absolutely and definitely not, nor is it built well.

Confusion is sometime made with the earlier Attaque, eventually developed into the Ocean Pro range. These were well built and seaworthy deep V's. They are not comparable to the Assault in any way.

Thanks to all for your advice and pointers. We went with the 5 metre Humber Assault in the end and picked it up today. Can't wait to get it out on the water now!!!! :-)
