A boat show would be your best bet but I suppose those won't be happening for a while either.

Bridger Marine in Exeter will have a few sibs and small ribs in the showroom. Possible they might have a couple of used ribs in as well.

Don't know of anyone in Brixham though.

Went to Bridger - excellent - very helpful

The girlfriend pointed out the one she liked - asking why, she said because its red...

I picked up a 9.8 and quickly put it down...

changed my outlook

thinking trailer now - also liked the Alu bottom zodiac cadet

The price increases - lol
