Welcome to the forum windwisperer. What boat are you currently looking at? also what HP are you aiming for? And whats your aprox boat budget...perhaps we can give you some relevant advice with that info.

I too came from yak to inflatables and i love my little F-Rib. Whatever boat you opt for your in the right place and welcome along to join in the banter or one of our meet ups. Were all keen to head to wales so local knowledge would be grand
