Just a quick update. It looks like my bike is now sold so hopefully I am pushing my budget up to 15k in order to keep some cash back to pay for some mooring fees/dry stack, as I would like to keep the boat somewhere preferably in order that I can get more usage out of it. Should have the money available from early next week so I guess this is my weekend for some earnest rib-hunting, it would be great to get something sorted before Cowes week especially as I have that week booked as Holiday

I have a few boats that I have spotted and wonder if anyone would be able/willing to comment on their pros/cons. I hesitate to list them for discussion on open forum as some belong to members of the forum and it may not be 'correct' to do so?

It seems to me that there is a great bunch of people on this forum and a vast wealth of knowledge. Would be eternally grateful if anyone would be willing to give a little advice, perhaps PM me?

Why?
Because the right boat is very personal and until you've had one for a year you don't really know what is important to you. Get a regular 'sports' type with a standard spec. Nothing unusual or knackered or 'custom built.'
The alternative is charter a few different boats this year to help make the same decisions about what works for you.
Also, talk to some of the dealers for new boats and see what features they are pushing and ask yourself honestly - "Is that good advice?"
JBT at Emsworth said "Get a central throttle" I didn't but wish I had (for when the young ones are driving)
Other things like all jockeys or a bench seat as well come into play as well, but its personal ....

Good luck!
Hi there, I have a 5.25 meter Deep V Osprey Viper with a 100hp Suzuki (2 stroke) elec start, oil ijection, with power tilt and trim. 4hp Suzuki back up engine like new, Gps, Fishfinder, VHF, Inboard fuel tank, A frame, bilge pump, bottle rack etc etc. All on a galvanised Hallmark roller coaster trailer. I am looking for 7,000 for the package which is all year 2000 and is in excellent condition.
Please let me know if you are interested.
Best regards, Mark.
