Seriously though - this has to be the BEST bargain I have ever had!!!

Spotted it on boats and outboards on Saturday - Quicksilver 310 with Suzuki 15hp 4 stroke - it has been used 3 times only!!! Bought just a year ago. Came with the wheels and fuel tank etc.

Brilliant quality and goes like a dream - 25mph on GPS - very dry ride - couldn't belive how little fuel it used - 2 for 2hrs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Main reason I bought it was for the engine - will make a great aux for my proper RIB.

Bloke had all the receipts and everything - still under guarantee - he was onlk asking 1200 but I paid a little bit less than that!!!

I wonder how well the 15hp will propel my big RIB??? Hopefully be able to use it for pottering around - may save me some fuel.

Baby RIB(alright SIB)will be great chucked into the back of the car to go to the med etc - would have been great in Gib last year!!!

If only it was still summer I would be temted to go to Guernsey in it - or is that a little too ambitious???

Is it long or short shaft?? You're gonna need a bracket if its short shaft to get the prop below the hull!!

Short shaft - now I have my new lathe I will probably make something up - manual screw jack type thing - normal outboard brackets seem too flimsy on a RIB!!!

There's a couple of dats every year when that would be a doddle in flat calm, you just need the fuel range!

Congratulations on your new SIB. Sounds like you're having fun already

Keith Hart will be proud of you codprawn!! - surprised he hasn't noticed this thread yet infact

In the pics you have posted, that slipway looks very familiar indeed - maybe 500metres down river from me.... East Llanion per chance?

If you answer yes to the above, was it a chap from Neyland you bought it off?

-Alex

Spot on with the place - that's the beauty of this boat - just chuck it into the car and away to go - takes about 15 mins to assemble and 10 to put away - great!!!

Bought it off a bloke in Birmingham - he used to live in Poole - Solihull couldn't be much further from the sea!!!

Got to say you live in the BEST boating area anywhere!!! Stunning sheltered waters with no speed limit and no hassle. River is 300 feet deep in places!!! Would love to live there - some stunning houses with their own moorings.

Apparently Captain Cook said Milford was the joint finest natural harbour in the World - the other was Sydney!!!

1200 or less.........

.............bloody bargin. I've had several sibs and have regretted selling each and every one, that said I was doing to turn a buck so to speak. I'll keep the next one if I ever get around to buying one.....spending most of my time researching MLM at the momnet. Anyone else into it ?
