When I was diving a lot, I was putting on 100hrs a year. I'd say 600 is just a bit beyond break-in, assuming normal maintenance was done.

I think its certainly fair to say that most people's boats are better than mine!

I've had a look through the sites recommended, and added the following boats onto my shortlist:

Ballistic 7.8 - Twin

Pascoe SR7

Revenger 715

Any thoughts on the boats above?

I'm drawn to the Ballistic because of the twin 175s, likewise the Pascoe because of the performance. But the look and layout of the Revenger is lovely, ideal for my needs. Does anyone know how quick it would be, with the four stoke 150 on the back?

Why does the twin 175s appeal? You are using it on south coast in friendly conditions if I recall correctly so the safety benefits of twin are minimal, but the downsides are all still there. For many people the word FICHT brings them out in a cold sweat. It may be these are the last generation before the etec was created and with this age on them now considered proven but if there alternatives...

The 150 on a 7+m boat isn't going to be as fast as she looks but will still get there in the end. The seating arrangement isn't to most people here's taste but actually that flipflop bench is very practical IF you will spend a lot of time at anchor. For many people here it won't appeal, but for many people on the water that package could work quite well.

Hi. I've just purchased a pascoe sr7 and also had a ballistic 7.8 on my short list. After testing both and bearing in mind what I'm going to use it for (shortish trips with family (5 and 7yrs) picnics at anchor, swimming off etc) the pascoe suited me better. Both have there good and bad points. I was originally only looking at jockey seats but having now tried benches, in my view are better for smaller kids and the ballistic jockey seats are actually fairly tall. For the conditions we are going out in the pascoe was a better option. And should I not have the kids on board, it goes fairly swiftly too.

Pm me if you have any questions on the pascoe
