The chepest Rib / SIB in the world

Just wondering who has the cheepest rib / sib
THis thread arises after a trip with my farther to the loacal tip. On sighting the familier Zodiac inflatable bag in the rubish covered in black mold we asked the guy what he wanted for it, he asked the tip manager who said that an old guy had broght it in and had not used it for over 10 years and as it was moldy a couple of quid would do. We took it expecting to use the stainless for parts.

When we got it home we discovered that the black mold was infact coal dust and simply wiped off. THe boat is a model that is 15 years old but the boat has hardly been used. THe lifelines are still white and it is in great condition. It takes a 10 hp and has a good floor and and inflatable keel. THis has to be the buy of the year.

We have since priced it against an equiverlant zodiac to find that our two pound investment is worth well over a thousand.

That is soooooo typical of the Williams family!

Two quid!

I`ve got a barge on the Thames you can have for free! only downside is its sunk and its full of fridges, and lead acid batteries. Both us and the PLA want to get rid of it, 20K to move it though!

Interested???
