Ok gents, a little help please.

What do we think of these boats, I am thinking of upgrading from my 5.3 to one of these.

Any opinions and experiences greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Porters are generally solid boats. I used to own one (also a 6.5) and it's still going strong. In fact it's currently for sale - I wonder if it's the one you're looking at? (White hull, blue tubes). I'd recommend it, especially if the price is right! Ian Porter is still in business and if a helpful chap if you ever need to pick his brains.

I have had mine for some time and am very happy with it. If you would like to take a closer look give me a call, I am not too far from you.

Sorry to hear you missed out! Silver lining? Perhaps there is an even better boat on the horizon - a bigger boat
