If its a Y-boat then M Chappelow has one and will know the weight roughly.
It'll all pack up onto a pallett anyway, so I wouldn't worry about the weight.

Codders on here runs speedshift who will transport it for you on a pallett. http://www.speedshift.co.uk/

You'll be able to get a price off his site.

How much is the boat?

You jammy bugger TBF!
Hope you enjoy it, I imagine you will find it a big difference to the 2.7m.
Good luck,
Geoff

It doesn't usually matter where it is within the UK as long as it not an island or the Highlands.

3.5 m ex RNLI would make it a Y boat.

However, the Y boat has plywood floorboards not alloy and the RNLI has used a range of other SIBS over the years (and people have claimed an RNLI heritage for boats and outboards where there isn't one!). Can you post a photo?

It will be (relatively) heavy - design weight is 50kg for the hull and 25kg for the floorboards, so 75kg before you add outboard, anchor etc. I've never weighed mine but that sounds about right. As Chewy says, M Chappelow on here also has one - he has posted the weights of his on here before:

http://rib.net/forum/showpost.php?p=253321&postcount=42

You will most likely want at least a 10HP outboard - I think Mart uses an 8HP, the RNLI use 15HP.

One thing to check - the main floorboard is a single piece, which will overhang a standard pallet significantly - I don't know the effect this has on shipping costs?

Cheers

Chris
