Caribe 3.6m 30hp Tohastu - any good for a first time ribster?
I have a friend who wants a small boat for a little bit of watersport, buzzing about, and easy maintainance. Bearing in mind his predicted useage, a rib or a dory would be the sort of thing to go for.
He has found a Caribe 3.6m with 30hp Tohatsu O/B with new fuel tank, all 1998, with serviced trailer, and all is apparently in immaculate condition. I don't think the boat has any lights or toys as such.
Is this a good little boat for this guy? He plans to use it in Christchurch/Poole.
Does anybody have any experience of Caribe?

The boat if up for £2500, but the owner has indicated there may some room for negotiation.
Any feed back much welcomed.
