I wonder who bought this and how much they paid? Looks like the auction was cancelled by the seller.

If it ended up going for the starting price then someone has the deal of the century on their hands. The condition of the boat looked very good and the highlighted items were less than an hours patching. And the transom looked as clean as any used sib I've seen.

Don't you wish you'd put a bid in now.

Yes, wish I'd put a bid in. But one the other hand we're about to go on holiday so the funds went elsewhere. Always the next time..

This might be a good split to get hold of a 20:

Suzumar inflatable rib 20hp suzuki outbouard | eBay

And this one a bit of a bargain bucket project for someone?

Yet another true bargain, QS 3.4m SIB, Mariner 15, useful extras for 1475 - never seen so many good deals around as this last month:

Interesting that Mariner 15 has a conventional gearshift on the side... perhaps been on remotes at some time.. wonder if the tiller gearshift works too?

Spotted this on ebay, an example of what a newbie shouldnt buy.

http://http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hon...gAAOSwEOxXQciL

Looks to be 5 or 6 years old, home serviced and no history mentioned, or.............

For 9 more, you can buy an identical brand new package lol

Yachtshop / Honwave T30 Alloy Floor With Honda 2.3hp - Honwave And Honda Engine - Boat And Engine Packages - Engines & Inflatables / Marine Equipment & Boat Sales

There are some great buys on ebay, but I struggle to work out if some sellers are simply nuts, or actually trying to rip people off.
