localfisher at a £100 your only going to get something you will have to do a lot of work on. i have had all sorts of boats for 35 yrs and ive got the smallest i would go formyself doing coastal fishing and am still learning and very warey of the sea.my advice to you is befreind someone with years of experience and a boat and learn the basics off himlocalfisher said:Thanks for that,
I am looking for a cheap dinghy with a motor, i dont mind the size or type as long as it is really strong and stirdy. i have about £100 will this get me a decent dinghy(without the motor). i plan to go just off the coast. i am looking at a 9.7 feet inflatable Dinghy will this suit me?
localfisher what i have now is a 4mtr inflatable so its easy to tow the only maintainance is to wash it down and cleen the engine. if your looking for moorings then it becomes expensive the cheepest place that ive kept a 4 berth yacht is cardiff yacht club in cardiff bay about £200 a year other than that get 1 to tow and if you intend to fish on your own make sure the boat is light enough for you to launch and get back on the trailor what ever you buy ask to see it on the waterlocalfisher said:Yes, i will have to do this.
i am very intersted in getting a boat but have had no experience with them.
Are they expensive to maintain and do you keep yours at a harbour? and have you gotta pay to keep it there?

obviously with an engine, what hp does it have, do you go out fishing in it locally
