Initial use will be to teach daughter boating, mainly Medway and Thames estuary area. Some slow exploring, some knee board, tube, skiing. General messing about on the river.
Normally three of us but probably adding friends for the nicer days, so 5 on average.
Been offered a Valiant 520 but know nothing about them. Probably need to increase budget to about 6k to get 5m ish with a decent engine rig.
