That looks spot on, if I didn't have a boat already I would consider that regardless of distance

I'm intrigued what put you off the 4.7. It seemed a good price for a tidy looking boat.

If I was looking for a 4.5 - 5m RIB I'd certainly have been taking a look. So you took a look and didn't buy... what made you decide to look at something else?

Given he bought a 5.7m boat I guess he decided he needed something bigger (or realised he could get more boat for not much more £)
