....didn't get to see the engine, got the info too late last night to arrange a viewing and no-one was in when I knocked as I passed by this morning but from the info supplied by Henry, combined with what I saw at the address this morning (and the fact that the postman was delivering to someone at that address whose name tallied with what Henry gave me), plus a phone call to a mate heavily involved in RYA matters ooop north who'd heard of him, I'd be happy to let Henry proceed to get whatever deal he can put together, as long as he's not expecting a fully working engine.

The guy selling the gear has demonstrable involvement with a couple of local sailing clubs, whose details I've passed to Henry, and runs an organisation (in his spare time I think) that provides sailing and jet-skiing experiences for disabled people.

A google search of his name/organisation even shows a few Youtube vids of him lecturing in a college (wearing an RNLI shirt) so Henry can check whether the voice he's spoken with on the phone matches the one in the series of clips on Youtube....

I should be a private investigator!

That is very thorough, nice going, it's good to see a nipper who is not in front of a gaming console

im going to go ahead with the purchase! Thats great whisper, thanks very much!

You would't sell that sr4 console would you? That would save me paying for postage of rib raffs one. Good idea making it removable because then i can also use it as a family boat when everyone want to come in.

So happy with that purchase, as i said just that dodgy keel guard repair (lucklily not the actual hull)

I think I am putting a 4 stroke on it though, not a 2 stroke, after Matt shared with me his experienced of his 40hp yam 4 stroke on his sr4.

Sooo excited to get that on the water!
