The SR4.7 is by far the best and I'm not just saying that because I am selling one in the for sale section

You best wait for some of our tube fitters/repairers to come along- some will depend of age and others how they have been maintained. I have seen good PVC and bad hypalon and visa versa so may depend on boat of choice.

Alway remember on boat choice it is about your needs and price and not about someone else considers a good/bad boat as every boat has its strengths and weaknesses. Some on forum hate certain boats whilst others use them all the time. Pick the selection to see and try on the water and always ask as you have done for updates. Dont be fooled by seller, this is your money and must work for you

No problem with any of the ribs but do you want to leave a boat on a drying mooring in Staithes all year ... not sure this is a good idea. Maybe overnight from time to time in the summer.

I plan on using it after work, if it's not on a mooring I won't be able to just jump on and go, I recognise the trade off on wear and tear from the mooring vs use, but I'd prefer to have a boat that I use a lot.
