HBI 21'6" tube set with sheath - free or cheap

Hi, I have a like new, tube/bladder set with sheath from an early 1990's HBI RIB. I got it in 1995 from a Mega-Bucks yacht that didn't like the color! I've kept it inside, carefully stored in New Hampshire (not the old Hampshire) and now it needs to go away - to a good home. Prefer someone local in New England (not the old England).

My boat is a 7.33 Willard with a 175 ob on a PORTA BRACKET. Check out, this is the best kept secret in the RIB world. I've used PORTA BRACKETS for 20+ years on Willard 7.33's in military offshore search and rescue. Tough and you can trim the ob skeg up so that the engine stays vertical, but the RIB keel protects the skeg from reef/rock. Fantastic for rescue or salvage where you need to run in rocky water and yet be able to protect the lower unit and still have full steering control.
