However, they need lots of power and the 22 centre console with a 250 is the mutts nuts ........... I helmed one back from Jersey in a very nasty sea and really felt safe.

Iíve always liked the look of the targaís, for a spot of fishing it would have to be a bar crusher. Never been on either but am hoping for the six numbers any week now .

We bought a share in this for the price of a cheap RIB and itís done us very nicely for family holidays over the last few years

River use only I'm guessing, or is it ok for coastal stuff?

Think I might change my mind from the Sworsdman 40 to an Axopar 37, saw a new one at cobbs quay marina today, 2 shiny new 300hp monsters on the back. The fitters were about to take her out for a test and she looked the business. Not cheap by anyones standards ouch but looked the business and apparently goes through the rough like butter.
