I think there is some good advice somewhere on the forum for those who drink and post.... ...don't!

For what it is worth I'd happily consider a Humber for my next rib - precisely because it is more likely to be in my budget: the Astra or Mondeo of the RIB world.

However if you've any more plans for fundraising let us know and we will circulate the memo that you should be agreed with at all time. I'll also forward the request to the elders of the internet

Oh right - Popular Culture, lost on me I'm afraid! I got an email recently informing me of an upcoming TV show (the sender is aware I don't have/watch TV). Following the transmission, they met me and asked if I had seen the item. I reminded them of my strangeness and they looked blankly at me... "But surely you have SOME way of watching TV?" I was unable to explain my situation to their satisfaction

Welcome to the forum John.

If you're based in Harris, then you'll have no option but to travel for the right boat. I'd say Scotland is very limited regards pre-owned private/trade market. And if this is your first boat, then personally I'd avoid Ebay. You need to see the boat in person, test the engine, etc. There are plenty members on here that will offer invaluable information or even view boats on your behalf if they're close, purely because they're complete rib-nobbers, and like nothing better than mucking about in boats, that's just the generosity of some folk.

I travel home to Lewis to fish most summers, so I'm familiar with Atlantic swells on the west coast. Even on relatively calm days the weather can change quickly. Harris will be exactly the same. You definitely need a deep V hull for that part of the world if you need to run for home.

I know you're looking specifically at Ribcraft or Humber boats, but Delta or Ribquest would be in my list too. Used Ribquest examples are like rocking horse poo, but do come up from time to time. Delta on the other hand, again scarce, are probably more utilitarian in build but are the dog's danglies. It all depends what you plan to use the rib for, budget, etc.

I'll throw these into the mix.
