Rhib wanted cash waiting.

Hi everyone.Bit of background for you. I am one of four members of a cruising club who are looking for a rhib to use for short runs,up river,quick channel dashes that sort of thing, instead of taking our cruisers out.
We are looking for a 4.2m min upto 5m poss 5.4m max,must have a reliable engine and hold air well,ideally we're looking as close to Bristol as possible, say within 150miles. We have set a budget of 2500 and have the cash waiting for the right rhib. Please feel free to contact me if you have something we may be interested in.
Thanks in advance.

Corr.. what an incentive for a 5.5m RIB .. you'll be wanting a full day skipper with that aswell ?

Whilst you might not have found the style constructive the actual meaning was.

Looks like the rumours about this forum were right.

You mean you have to have a sense of humour, not have a thin skin and be up for a bit of banter and leg pull!!

Okay. We will re-wind, what you are asking is IMHO not feasible with your budget constraints and if it were IMHO it would not be seaworthy.
You need to further research the present market for a good product and re-adjust you requirements and/or your budget.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Did the individual who told you that rumour put you up to asking here for a 5m RIB with a reliable engine for 2500? He's a very naughty boy!

Welcome to Ribnet, BTW. Only half of the members are tossers - the nice ones will be along shortly...
