F470 in Oregon

1999 F470 with clear OR title. Tags good through 2014. Rigid floor. Not original to F470 but adopted from MK3 Grand Raid similarly strong, 1" think. Hold air good. Valves serviced, work nice and smooth.

I believe 1984 partially galvanized Escort trailer with dual level (one under main tube, one under speed tube on each side) bunks specifically setup for this boat. New tires, new bearings. No title for trailer but don't need one in OR if load is less than 1800lb.

Practically brand new, electrical start, tiller, Suzuki DF25EL 1.5 months old with full factory warranty. Less than 15 hours. Got tachometer and hour meter. 2 props original 10" and current 13" pitch. 6 gal tank. Motor sits on aluminum 3" transom riser to keep anti-ventilation plate happy.

Month old West Marine dual purpose marine battery (deep cycle and starting). Zodiac bow storage bag. Commando anchor. Oars.
Larger than regular 6.5L Bravo 8M pump with built in manometer. Makes it no brainer pumping up.

Boat cover. Good for towing and storage. Keeps junk from getting in and stuff like life jackets from flying out when towing.

Only notable nuisance is leaking keel, I have to pump it up before heading out. Takes only like 5-10 pumps to inflate it anyway.

As it's setup currently it's not a speed demon but cruises at 19-20 mph with 2-3 adults and 3 kids on board 600-800lb. Ironically I didn't get a chance to try it out by myself yet. Seems pretty economical. Visiting Lake Billy Chinook we put on maybe 40-50 miles on in 3 days and refill was less than 4 gallons.

FYI I can sell boat(with trailer/bags/cover etc) and motor (with tank/battery/props) separately. I will help rigging up motor to your boat.

$2700 OBO boat.
$3600 OBO motor
If there is package inquiry I will give it preference.
Smaller lighter RIB/SIB you could up prop pitch to 15 and go 30+ mph if you dare. Very nice high torque motor. One of quietest in it's class. Read nice in depth review here: http://www.boatscene.com.au/pdf/Suzu...FB_0908p12.pdf

Few additional pics.





Here is tail piece design in principle. Made from 1" 15 ply plywood. Coated with West System epoxy, marine primer, marine topside paint. Bullnose links to aluminum board in front just like original Zodiac. Short stringers made from 2" squared block of plywood lock them from sides once boat is inflated. There is zero play. Floor is rock solid as long as boat is inflated to proper pressure. Zero movement in floor going over waves, even got some air once.
This sketch is not to scale just to give some idea of my hybrid floor construction,.
