As it happens ;) I can point you towards a discounted PB2 course-£200 rather than the normal price of £250.
It's nothing to do with me bar the guy running it is a friend. His words below.

"We have a Powerboat Level 2 course running out of Haslar Sea School on the 30th April and 1st May (Monday and Tuesday Next Week).

Last Minute Discount - 20% off our list price of £250, bringing this down to £200 a head.

Contact [email protected] or call me on 023 929 88847 if interested."

Hi Andy

Check out my web site, see signature below for the link, it might give you some ideas on what owners think of their boats.

For the money you have available I doubt you will find a good Warrior however there are a good number of similar styled boats for that budget. Also look out for the Endevour 500 and Explorer Elite.

As been suggested many times, write a list of what you want, what you would like and what you could live with. Then go and try a few boats to see if they fit into your ticked boxes.

Good luck and keep us advised on what you end up buying, with pictures as well.

Regards

Dave

Sounds OK, but it is the engine and trailer that are the critical parts, Wilson Flyers are good fishing boats and you will learm a lot, but check out the motor, thats were your money goes and a bad trailer will stop you getting onto the water.
