That's probably the best all round package with everything you need on this whole thread. Will be gone very quick I think...

Seriously? Crazy - and you're in London too. Even if you offer to go and collect tomorrow paying cash? - I'd say £2200 is fair. Better that than the lottery of a time wasting eBay winner and 10% eBay fees etc.

Yes it does look good but anyone going after it would need to factor in...

It has the wrong Bravo pump which will not do the HP floor... the main point of having an elec pump.

The outboard is very scuffed for just "5 or 6 uses".

Having the thread stripped in one transom wheel will be a pain.

And returning to the outboard... he's selling it with a muff attachment so why on earth would he comment it's not been started for a while and could do with a service and a plug? If I was wanting to maximise my sale I'd have started it so I could say it was in good running order.

Plus it's annoying it has the wrong tank... that 12l Honda tank won't give enough range for many so a new Quicksilver 25l required ideally.

Niggly points perhaps....

Good spot on the pump. Rest of it though (you niggly old cynic! ) - engine looks really clean to me?? Leg and prop very nice, maybe a few marks to the hood but that's par for the course, they always get knocked about in loading and storage and it is 10 years old! Leg, skeg and prop are the important areas to look for misuse. I think he is referring to the boat as used 5/6 times and owned from new, not that he bought the engine brand new? The fuel tank will sell easily and you can buy a 25l second hand for the same sort of money. Whatever with the boat, engine, tank, jackets and other extras it's a cracking set up and would cost well over £4k to buy all that gear new now.

I think JKs one he posted on here last night will work out a better deal though.

This looks pretty nutty:

Nice outfit here if you can get it a bit cheaper:

I see this seller has a well know dealer of firm priced SIBs/outboards sniffing after it so the dealer must think there's a good profit left up to "X" pounds...

Inflatable RIB boat 3.8 metres with Mariner 15hp Outboard Hardly Used | eBay


The one you linked Max... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Avon-infla...c=1&rmvSB=true is very similar to the way the original owner of our first SIB ran it. A 1970s Mk.1 Zodiac around 3m which he used with a 20hp 2-stroke on holidays abroad... reckoned it was huge fun. Transom was a work of art in polished mahogany... very strong and properly rated to 20hp.
