It might be worth getting in touch with 'The powers that be' at the RNLI.. and ask about thier redundant training Boats.I know they sorted a SIB out for some Sea Scouts Localy..a few years ago now, but may be worth a try.I imagine getting hold of the right person would be half the Battle.
Lottery Grant??..Prince's Trust?? Good Luck either way. I know you Guys do a comendible jo!...Volunteers the Backbone of Britain!!

Thats a pretty vague requirement. What sort of actviities do you undertake. If you want an inboard is that for some form of displacement craft? Where will you store the boat? Is it secure? vandal proof etc?

I'm thinking a hardboat may be better than somethign burstable. Look at FunYak. Speak to Poly on here if you think that boat is worth exploring. However, not sure what you mean by cheap - you'll be spending 4 figures to get one...

We are just looking for some RIBs in good condition we are getting a jaffa soon hopefully. So we don't want another hardcraft, we already use RIBs they just need to be replaced so we can buy without an outboard because we will just swap it all over we need at least a good quality shell.

Rib

Hi,
I have a Flatacraft GT4 rib, 4m for 250 if that's any interest to you.
A trailer is available also for 250 if required.
Let me know if you might be interested and I'll get more details, photos etc.
Cheers
Owen

Can you indicate what sort of budget you have to spend on a craft, do you need a trailer ?

Regards
