Depends. Do you want a 4m or a 4.7? A 4.7 will cost you a fair bit more.

For a really nice 4m I'd be looking at £2500 upwards. For a really nice 4.7, start at £3500.

There's a few on ebay at the moment, you might need to trawl through a few ad's as some of the titles are a load of old rubbish.

Yes, it would be most appreciated if you could get a look at it and give me your opinion. Saves me a lot of trashing around and comments from an older hand wouldn't hurt.

Please outline to me how a Humber Assault is superior to an Avon Searider, maybe an Avon Adventure I would be inclined to agree..

Feckin' A - Searider fight!

Wheresoever they disrespect the Searider, thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them.
