Good Value Sib

If you are just wanting to try Sibbing and not sure if you will like it here is an excellent value 3.2 m sib as a starter outfit. 350

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320cm-Sch....c100012.m1985

I have one like it as a tender and it is very impressive.

Time you got that Honwave sold Yaba… it's one of the good old ones. Have you tried Ebay?

Then use some of the money for a good service on that lovely Mercury??

Well shes gone. Honwave now sold last night in a rainy BP petrol station for 330.00 and I threw in an anchor.

Agreed Fenlander although 330.00 would be a heck of a service! Definitely time to draw up a spares list for the (lovely) Merc and get spannering.

Asked last night about the Honwave I sold I said Id go out to sea in it the next day without hesitation.

Perhaps the OPs boat is good value for money and well built but anyone looking for a starter SIB a 3.2m Honwave did me lovely, sturdy and reliable. Even at 15 years old which I think this one was all glue intact no issues and good for quite a few more years.

Well yes but with the cash left over you have just enough for a selection of transom wheels in all colours.

I was pondering over some Trem wheels... with many coloured wheel options, picked up the sand hoppers yesterday now they seem heavy, I did think about replacing my icom for SH, the OB needs a service and there we have it.
