Tornado 5.3 Project RIB (cheap)

I've too many projects on and need some space...

I will remove the engine from this RIB so that and the yam gauge / throttle is NOT included but everything else is.

She's a scruffy but sound tornado 5.3 on a solid trailer. Easy project.

I'll let this go "as is" for £1000.

The trailer is worth probably £500-£600, perhaps more.

Everything is untested. I will get around to testing it but the price remains the same wether it works or not !

I towed the boat to my yard & there is a spare wheel but It would be sensible to change bearings.

I understand the boat was last used 2013.

Good bits:

Hull seams sound
Built in fuel tank
The upholstery looks (and is) new (had been stored inside, shame the boat wasn't)
Drive rack (easily removed)
A-frame
Anchor locker
Tubes hold air. Baffles checked (OK).
Trailer seams solid. It's a home made stainless (yes STAINLESS STEEL) affair with recycled axle and hitch from what was probably the original galvanised one.
Spare wheel and tyre.

Electronics
-globalmap GPS / plotter and antenna.
-X107 sonar and transducerClick image for larger version

Bad bits:

Tubes very scruffy. Will need some patches replacing or glueing back.
In my opinion though they have a few years left in them - I've seen much worse.
Trailer bearings best replaced.
Fuel tank filler cap mislaid, white spirit cap fitted in its place !!

Be my guest.

After hinting to 'er indoors that another wee project would be nice to do over the winter I was met with an icy stare.

I was talking to a man today who shifted a trailer from Galway to the north of Scotland for nothing - just ran it on the network...
