theft!!!! need a new rib, HELP

earlier this year our rib was stolan (flatcraft Force 4,35hp), now we are looking for a new rib.

Our rib was mainly used for skiing, wakeboarding and parents liesure trips!

The new rib that we are looking for needs to have a little more power and a bit bigger. our price range is between 4000 - 8000.

We are quite new to the art of buying second hand/new ribs and would be very greatfull of any expert advise and tips

please help we have just mastered the wakeboard and need to get our wetsuits wet again!!!!!!!!!

regards lou and craig

I'm sorry to here about your theft, I know how upsetting it can be, I am sure you will get a lot of replies from your request but here my offering

I have an Avon Searider Commercial spec 4.7 Mtr boat with a Yamaha 70 BETOL engine on a roller coaster 3 trailer, It was delivered in November 2000 and cost 11373 pounds

It has been used regularly since then (150 hours) throughout the year It will get to 38 knots and is very comfortable at 28 knots and I love it. It's been scrupulously maintained and kept under cover and still looks brand new. I would want no less than 8000 for it but if you are interested give me a call.

I have a genuine reason for selling it .......I want to buy a bigger Avon with two Yamahas. If you are intersted in having a look then If you can get down to Southampton then I can provide the fuel for a proper sea trial , if your interested then bring the sunshine with you and get on the water.

MY web address is
