Personally I think Deltas are overrated & overpriced. In the 80's they were the bees knees, but it was a small pool to choose from. There are better boats out there now & better value. Even by "utility" standards, the finish on Deltas could be rough & ready. The 5-5 was also a damp ride in a beam wind.
All IMHO of course.

The Avon looks kinda similar to the Assault I am looking at, only more expensive. Does the Avon have a deeper V?
And the Stormforce would be too big for what I need. Although the idea of cheaper diesel does sound good

The Avons of that era were bloody expensive and well made, they made there own high quality fabric which seemed much heaver than many of the other manufacturers. The Avon is a deeper V hull than the assault and would be a better option if you want to cross to the IOM.
