Boats I nearly bought

Well in order to try and spice up the gallery pages I thought I'd post some pictures of my rib shopping exploits. I didn't buy all of them, some didn't even return calls when I offerred asking price and some I walked away from laughing to myself that they we asking money for a shed!!

Here goes;

1) Ballistic 8.1 with a 225 Optimax
2) Ocean 6.5 with a 225 Optimax - nearly 900hrs mind you!
3) Ribtec 585 with a 90hp Honda - way under powered!
4) Delta 5.5m with a 225hp Suzuki - Hello! (Went to see this one at a fire station!!)
5) 6.5m Delta with a 225 Merc. Saw this in Portsmouth and it was a wreck!

It lived on the Thames Barrier but it was brought to Sunbury on Thames.

My friend ended up buying it.

"Deep six too"?

Is that the Ocean owned by Dover Sea School CJL?

Has it been for sale recently?

Heres a few I very nearly purchased:
1: Tohatsu thing. Pete7 bought it in the end
2: Pac 22 from Babcocks
3: Prosport thing in Gosport.
4: Can't even remember what that was. Was a total wreck though! Edit: A Cobra, as per photo!
5: Moment of madness

3: Think this was a Ferryman, up in Scotland.
