Something to go out in with the wife and daughter, maybe pull a ringo. But would cope with a slightly choppy sea better than the Fletchers I've had in the past.

I would have to say a smart rib, I like bench seats rather than jockey seats.

4k is not a bad budget for your first rib, would have thought it would buy a decent used SR4 package...

have you looked on boats and outboards?

Always looking on every site, but don't know enough about ribs to make a decision. The last thing I want to do is buy something I look the look of, then be disappointed with it on the water .Hopefully I can pick the brains on this forum to help...

there are plenty of searider owners on here, I'm sure one of them will give you a demo.

What about the retro seariders with porn seats in?
Even cheaper to buy than one with a console.
