Quicksilver Inflatables(380 / 380E) (Page 2) FOR INFLATABLE BOAT QUICKSILVER PVC SOFT BOTTOM

Im going to make some enquiries about getting some made up in timber.

Mike


Listing was sold as 'used'.

To quote:

Quote:
Condition:

Used: An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may be a floor model or an item that has been returned to the seller after a period of use. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections
The item was not as described.

The seller is obliged to supply them to you or compensate you, eBay will certainly sort this out, they are so heavily weighted now in favour of the buyer.

Just call eBay customer support and let them help you.

I think, judging from the listing Q below that she is not familiar with the boat and as pointed out earlier they are probably in the shed or garage!

Quote:
Please can you advise 1/. What is the model reference as per the plate on the transom 2/. How many holes have been patched on the RIB 3/. Do the valves hold the air pressure Thanks 12-Jul-15
A: Hi, thank you for your questions. The boat has 1 patch The valve holds pressure 100% it was pumped up over 3 weeks ago For these photos and has not deflated at all. I am struggling to find the model number, there is a sticker but part of it is worn, what I can see is 's.nop2871' I think the last 2 digits may read 05 but can't be sure as there isa black mark over them. This may not be the correct details as I am selling this on behalf of my husband so not sure what I am looking for Kind regards, Kelly

By the look of the eBay listing I'm sure they have just been forgotten, who wraps the bars up with the sib when packing

Yep... it would be daft not to message the buyer and ask in the stringers are in the shed/garage still.

Max is right though that sold in the used category it should be useable which it isn't... however just to cheer you up as long as that engine is a nice runner it's probably worth 50% more than you paid for the whole lot so you've bought a very cheap engine plus a free boat and free accs. Well done.

Be carefull Mike.... IMO ..Fenlanders quote is accurate.

I have a quicksilver 4.3HD so know the boat. I suspect you are quoting for part 22 ..which is the ali trim on the edge of the floor boards..not the stringer. If you do order the parts.. I think it is part 24 you want x four..plus the two end caps .. part 23 and 25 x four.

However dont take my word for gosspel..check it out yourself..in case the wrong parts arrive ..if you order them

the sticking valve may just be locked in the open position for deflating . try pushing the valve centre in slightly and turning it anticlockwise quarter of a turn if it is it will come out 10mm or so and seal

Got the valve sorted so happy with that.

Regarding the stringers/joiners/joining bars the seller says he didn't know it was supposed to have any.

I have asked for a price from my local Mercury stealer, however I'm strongly considering getting some timber ones made up. However I could really do with a photo to get an idea of the profile can anyone help?

Mike I said further above you have got great value with this outfit so the missing stringers need viewing in this context. However their reply shows an element of deceit so I'd prod the seller one more time remembering the two statements on the listing (as quoted by Max in much more detail)...

... is fully operational and functions as intended... Very good condition and extremely sturdy.

If the whole set of stringers and end plugs are say 150 I'd try for a part refund of half that to make the point they've sold you something as useable which is totally unusable.

If you decide to go for wood & want the profile of the stringer just order a plastic end plug. These go in the end of the stringer and are its exact inner and outer profile... less than 2 last time I bought one.
