Well all things being well I should have said boat in next week. Am i wrong to be nervous of a ' big' rib ? I was underwelmed with the any views so I guess noone has an opinion (very unlike here), but thanks to Tom for his offer of advice- bad timing as I was away from a sensible phone all last week.

Hopefully this will mark a large turn in the weather so I can run back to Christchurch from Posrtsmouth harbour happily at the weekend.

well for what its worth i think its a nice boat!!!

we looked at the 8.5 meter before we got our last rib and really liked it but couldnt justify the 60K!

think its the only one they made but if it had been for sale when we were looking i would have had it!!

good luck and enjoy!
