Hello. Actually, I really hate writing about myself on forums as much as I hate talking to answerphones. I think you all know the feeling.
I've been pointed here from another set of Fora, the bunch at YBW.com and I've been on there for years as Seagreen, so I kept the same tag. Those from there will recognise me, I'm sure.
I'm thinking of getting into Ribs. Though I'm a raggie sailor of many years, I know nothing of Ribs, and I'm looking to some basic hints and tips on buying secondhand boats. I'm particularly interested in an Avon Searider SR4 as a small workboat /tender for estuary and calm coastal work, with a functioning trailer. All other bits I can add as needed. But where to start? What do I look for? How can I tell if its stolen? (thinking of ebay and local ads here).
All tips, advice and pointers to these and other obvious questions welcome.
