I assume this is the rib you are referring to:

Solent 6.9 - Optimax 225 - 24,500

If its for pleasure cruising, cross channel jaunts and days out with the family and friends then an ideal choice. Lee Fairweather has been servicing my engines for a decade and never had a problem and would have absolute confidence in his ribs. That 6.9m looks very high spec with nice deck, electronic widgets, posh seats and over lay on the tubes

Probably a much better buy than a similar sized Scorpion IMHO.

I presume Tim Griffin is helping you with your next house move.

I'd disagree with Pete's comments about the Scorpion
but the Solent is a well made boat. if it is Wayne's boat then that seems a fair price to me for a good boat with little use

no, but he might help with a few lessons on fishing and how to reel them in

Actually I stand by my comment, since they haven't made 6.5 Scorpions for a while I would prefer the Solent 6.9 particularly given the very high spec and little use.

What can I say, you're a hugely admired and respected member of this forum so I will bow to your opinion.

TJ you shouldn't have any problem using the hydrohoist with your boat I shouldn't think it weighs more than a ton.

It will be very nippy as well as looking good

I think it's a stunning looking boat and seems very well kitted out.
