A 4m Avon Searider is the way to go. These badboys have are pretty sought after, you'll buy a bit of a shed for 1k, getting much nicer nearer the 3k.

Ummm, it's the old dilema. For a genuine 4 seater you're in the 5m+ bracket and your 3k budget then starts to look a bit light.

Yeh I've been looking and the price from a 4m to 5+ is a jump up but I think am going to have to take the leap for a better rib lol, would you say a 40hp would be adequate power? Thanks
