If its river sailing and your club isn't doing windward leewards, I'd hate to say it, but bagging the kite on the 5000 is going to be nightmare in any decent breeze. I14 is probably the best bet, but on a larger river, you'd get away with the 5000.

Major rules change in 1996 which is why there are quite a lot of cheap boats around. Be sure to get one with a carbon mast if you can, since 25ft of Al mast makes things a little more difficult I've heard. For this you will prob need to go for boats modified to the new rules but are now no longer competative. These are often cheaper anyway since they cannot race on the pennie circuit.

My 14 was 800. Modded to 1996 rules with carbon mast and mylar sails. A heck of a lot of boat for the money and awesome fun. Destroying 800s downwind in a boat costing 1/10 of theirs never gets old

I also know someone who is selling a nice 14 for about 1200, think its the last Howlett design made and it does have a carbon mast. Don't think the boat has been thrashed much and the seller was saying it wouldn't go too badly with a T-Foil knocked on the back. Don't know too much about the boat myself but can get contact details if you want.

Have you seen this one on ebay:

I'd also consider a fireball - less manic than an I14 and probably cheaper to run.

That boat is overpriced for one that old, k1182 sail number.
