With the very greatest respect Peter 6 grand is not 5 grand.

There are various budgets but there is a bottom end for a serviceable rib. I'm sorry but I heard all this stuff when I started looking, and just like then he asking proce for the things on offer start creeping up, or things get posted from ebay which are at two and a half now, but with "Reserve not met" written under them.

Ribnet is a great resource, and I love it here. Hell, I'm spending my Friday night here! But you all look at stuff with different eyes to the newbie. You all have the knowledge and the storage space to have 3 boats at a time with one of them upside down, and do up knackered old boats etc etc. But is someone comes on here and asks if they can buy a rib for 2 and a half grand they aren't generally talking about a 'project' they're talking about a boat... that they can go boating in/ on.

And to refer back to the OP again, if you're in 'the north' you don't have as much choice as you southerners have, at least not on the doorstep. You need to be pretty damn sure that it's a goer before you drive 250 miles to look at the fecker!

RIBase
These are all out-with budget... but it's good to know what's out there. Where there's a will there's a way... even if it means putting the conservatory on hold!

Zodiac Pro 7-man. Clean example, plenty toys, but shallow v-hull so expect it to slap in the rough stuff. Still to reach asking price.

Humber Assault 5.0. Again, shallow v hull, but has decent Suzuki 50hp 4-stroke.

And what about this?

6m? 115hp? 2001? less than 3k? too good to be true surely?

So as a n00b you've got all that bollocks to wade through too...

Not quite big enough, and a bit underpowered for towing. But a least it's local -ish. You could do worse than go have a look?
