5-5.5m set up!

Looking to purchase my first RIB set-up.

I'm looking for a deepish V hull that'll seat 4, 5-5.5m long (Tornado, humber etc) and an outboard that'll push it along (60-90hp), trailer and some bits and peices.

Here comes the snag!!! I only have a buget of 5000 by which to buy my first RIB, (I first have to get the Wife interested before I spend more).

So any takers?

Andrew G

Yeh, and why would I want a plain old Viper, when I now own a MAX

Wouldn't putting your Ad in the For Sale section be better?
