Also most faults with it will be fixable with some duck tape and a few ten pound notes! But the bigger the boat the more expensive to maintain.
Yep spot on Polwart, unless you have lots of money to throw at this, then with something like a 4m with a 40 or 50hp on it, it will be cheap to run in all aspects & will hold its value well! It will cope with anything you want to be out in & you will have so much fun.
I had a great weekend away with my family of five this year with all our kit packed away in our little SR4 for a couple of days

I have just bought a 6m with 115hp on it but will be keeping the SR4 as it is just such fun & would be my choice to go out & play in out of the too!
