I spotted my chance and bought from a lady owner who looked after it well. A 2007 build with the history to go with it. Engine was checked out with no faults and 350 hours on the clock. Clamchowder was also admiring it and I think was disappointed that I got there before him.

I have seen those hire ribs which I think were Excels with A frames attached. Reminded me of my first sib that we had SD330 with a 5hp - never thought I'd end up with one of those fancy ribs I saw flying round Salcombe at the time.

Did have a great day yesterday coastearing off Praa Sands. The chap called Matt who took us out did a really good job with some good jumps well over 5m. Took the Gopro which has produced some good shots but will have to wait until we get back home to download. A great time highly recommended.

Yep great boats. And with that lump goes well with manageable fuel consumption

Lurvly. Great size for taking 4 out on seats, ie big enough for 2 abreast, yet easily trailered/manhandled, quick enough but economical.
