Don't mind the comedians on here, the boat you are looking at isn't the best choice for what you want to do. Ideally, you are looking for a minimum of a 3.2m SIB (soft inflatable boat) with either a wood/ali deck or an airdeck, paired with a 10hp motor - preferably two stroke.
Your budget means second hand, but if you stretch it a touch - it should be doable. Older SIBs sell for very little money, no so older engines.
Talk it over with us. Some of us will be helpful...
Thanks for the reply,
Yes it something we are looking into, The budget I could raise to maybe £1500.
Basically we are looking for a SIB/RIB that we can go out fishing on in good weather, Flat sea so no wavy riders here.
Can you recommend any dealers who I should be talking too.
Also whats makes are good, Seen a Zodiac, Sunsport and a few others.
Also what would you recommend as a Outboard? Mercury?
