Completely new to boating, and am looking to buy first boat.
I am going to take the RYA stage 1 & 2 before buying, but am looking for some general advice...
Boat will be used mainly inshore coastal/estuary, and will be moored in the esturary.
Looking for a nice quick boat for fun. I've been thinking of between 17' -> 19'
Is this reasonable?
Also, what size outboard would be recommended - no need for huge speed (not skiing of anything), so would 70-90Hp be enough?
As this is my first boat, I am thinking a budget of about £2,000 (boat and outboard - I have additional funds for other equipment etc.).
What boats would be good buys in this price range?
What should I be looking for?
Any help appreciated!!
