RIBase
Thats a good rib, if you are looking to change to a new rib of a similar size then I would re-tube instead and you would have in effect a new rib with a good trailer

Good advice from two stroke. See it as a project. Get a quote for a retube, sort out the hull first, retube & new console if needed, bang on an engine & off you go. Or work out what you can spend and buy something of the same value that doesn't need work and ebay what you have.
