It was a well wrapped box.. obviously never been opened before. I peered inside a wee bit concerned that I would find similar issues with my new purchase..as some of you guy's recent buys

Its now blown up ..sitting on the floor beside me.. and I have gone over every inch of it

Im pleased to say..Im more than delighted. The quality and workmanship is the exact same as days gone by.

Yup.."The Guppy" has arrived in "the Gurnard's" house.

I will give a first impressions post on a separate thread .. as soon as I get photos sorted and over my excitement..then I will spill the beans on my purchase...

But bottom line so far on first impressions ..for me .. is my purchase (not an aerotec) is as expected for a 2K boat
BRILLIANT - pleased to hear it ! Can't wait to hear all about it once you have it on the water

The guy isn't free until tomorrow so I'll be looking then, hopefully yes

Am a little hesitant to buy such an old one (really wanted a newer one that would give me peace of mind) but this should do to give one a go

Yep, will post here Sean in reply to your PM but if it really is 14 years old (certainly does not look it?? - is that from the serial number) then check it over carefully as per my post a page ago. If all is well then it's a great buy and I'd rather buy a really clean well looked after older one than a manky newer one. Tempted myself as a spare but won't tread on your toes..

Regardless, if it is in good order then you will make money come sale time so there is nothing to lose.

Not sure what the engine being a 10 but him saying 13hp thing is about - Fenlander?

Yeah its from the serial number, spent most of its time in a holiday home in Cyprus, so not been used much.

I asked Fenlander about this engine, he said it was bull. I did some reading before asking him and apparently; they used to use the same block from the 8hp to make the 10 but moved to a bigger block (12 or 15) to make the 10hp. When they did this they called it a XR10 (branding thing) there seems to be some talk about it actually being 12hp online but I'm dubious of this, why would anyone make a 12 and call it a 10 !? maybe it has more torque or something.
