Sounds like a great deal. I got mine with a 1996 70 hp Johnson. Some tube work needed. Some good tlc put into making her ship shape too. Kinda fun doing some work to personalize the end result. I'm getting there.
With the availability of the ex-coastguard ribs in the US you kinda gotta just jump on something when it pops up. Lately quite a few have popped on the market but it seems the demand has shot up quite a bit. I remember just last year watching some Ex-mil ribs going for DIRT cheap. Too bad they were all on the Eastcoast. Now even beat up hulls are fetching what complete boats were getting a year back. I've got enough ribs for now
