i'm in 2 minds about ex RNLI engines, on the one hand they are well serviced and maintained, but on the other hand they do have a hard life!
but over 2k for an 8yr old mariner 40 without ptt seems a bit steep to me

over 2k sounds like alot to me too, just been involved in a purchase of a Mariner 40 MSL ex RNLI a couple of years older than that for 1500 but it was attached to a Zodiac Futura MKIII HD with a console and on a trailer too.

Mark.

spareribs, Robby (turbodiesel) and I worked together at barrus he was special products, ie M.O.D. and private rescue services, I was marine leisure ie RNLI private endusers and dealers, just to clear that up , Iwould have loved to see Robbys face when he read it though have a good day, by the way he is good for spares, then Robby had an attack of common sense and started his own dealer ship

It is Bill Highwayman after all what do you expect they list some right old clonkers on eBay for ridiculous money.

I guess as long as there is always some plonker to pay over the odds they would be silly not to
