don,t know why i like
vailant they look very nice
Daniel, from reading the thread it seems you like Valiants. having just sold my last rib a Valiant V490/ Merc 75hp, I can only reccommend this little boat as a great platform to enter the Ribbing scene. A bilge pump is a must, however, if you are gonna be tackling big seas, which this boat is quite capable of. Ours has been to the Fastnet rock, which i'm sure most will agree is a very treacherous place and it held its own very well.
I know I already posted this link on your other thread, but here is something to think about. We bought our boat, which is very similar spec to the boat you see here for about about the same price last yr. After a seasons use and the addition of various electronic equipment, we sold the boat for quite a significant profit and this profit takes into account all our fuel & servicing bills as well.
So you might even say that we were paid to use the boat for the season.
Maybe you could do this as well. It's food for thought anyway. Also bear in mind that somebody selling their boat now is probably upgrading their boat and will want to get rid of their current boat quickly(to fund a new boat), so there are plenty of deals to be done.
