I've had a few sibs and know little about fibreglass boats so was seeing if it was worth my time. I apologize if I wasted yours or anybody else's time.

All the best.

Hi Rex don't worry he is the resident grump. We all have varying amounts of knowledge but we still ask folks opinions. That's what forum about

Joking aside, have a look on the stirling cruise thread - you'll see the state of my rib. By the time I ever get round to finishing it I'd have been just as cheap buying a new / decent used one....BUT half the fun for me is in the refurb.

Ditto my engine. Paid peants for it. Then spent probably 1200 totally rebuilding it (rebore - the works) and yes, I could have bought a runner for that, but a) I had fun rebuilding it and b) I know it's history now so no surprises.


So, if you are in the mood for a restoration it's probably 40 well spent.


(and I do actually have an engine looking for a good home!)

Joking aside, it is a runner, but is a project, hence the price!
Well my friend who told me i should by the boat went and bought it himself, and apparently its in much better nick than the photo. A lot bigger than it looks to. And supposedly the transform is in good nick. This happens to me a lot though so oh well

When you say your outboard is a project mate, what is needing done to it? I am pretty interested since I lost out on an apparently good boat so im looking for something to keep me busy. Where abouts in Scotland are you?

All the best,
Rex
