As title really, about to purchase a 3.8 rib first ever powered boat. Aim to cruise the river Avon, Severn and perhaps go for day trips to the the coast for a bit of sea experience too.
Plan to buy new boat but 2nd hand engine due to budgetary restriction. Really wanted an aerotec or quicksilver but a little too expensive so I’m looking at this, what do you guys think, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F142864136476
Planning on 2stroke for weight purposes (15-20bjp), sound about right?
Shopping list consists of boat, engine/fuel tank, rollers, life jackets, decent pump, vhf radio....anything else to start with?
Thank you in advance for help and guidance
