Used Rib Advice Requested
I am looking at purchasing a 1999 Zodiac YL420, with a blown Honda 40 HP outboard, and a trailer.
The boat appears to be in almost fair condition.
It does not appear to have been covered. There is sun damage and tears in the seat cushions. The tubes are either really dirty, or slightly sun damaged as well. There does not appear to be any patches on the tubes.
The front hatch cover is cracked, and the hatch cover for the fuel tank is missing.
The engine is blown, and i imagine wil need to be replaced at a cost of around $5,000.
The trailer is in fair condition.
The asking price is $3900.
I would not say that the boat is in poor conditon, or a full blown project, but it needs some work.
I definitely feel that it is not worth the asking price.
I would really appreciate any and all advice regarding my possible purchase of this boat.
