Whatís it worth - 2.8M Zodiac and 4HP Merc.
Now weíve picked up a Bombard 380 Aerotec for the Smaller Nashers we need an engine, which will have to be funded by the sale of their old boat and engine.
Trouble is Iíve no idea what either is worth.
The engine is a 4HP Mercury which Iíd guess is a 90ís model, but it runs and pumps water very well.
Itís very clean inside the hood, good condition on the outside and Iíve serviced it regularly. Itís always been flushed after use and washed down.
The Smaller Nashers have found it very easy to use as it has all the attributes of a larger tiller outboard, such as twist grip throttle and proper Forward, Neutral, Reverse gearbox.
The SIB is quite an old Zodiac which the transom plate states is a Z-4.
Itís in quite good very useable condition, ideal as a tender or for Kids to much about in. There are NO patches on it anywhere.
Iíve stripped the transom, painted it with Blue International Paint and added an aluminium clamp plate.
It originally had wooden slats for a floor, but Iíve converted it to an airdeck and strengthened the bottom seams to ensure it doesnít come apart. We also have an inflatable keel for it but we didnít ever use it.
It rolls up into itís original storage bag which is made out of the same HD material as the boat and is also in good condition.
I also still have the original wooden slats and bow board.
The combination is easy to transport around in the car or our 6.5M Rib. We blow it up when we get to the beach to use as a taxi to and from the Anchored Rib, plus the Smaller Nashers tear around in it all day with their friends.
So come on guys, whatís it worth before I offer it for sale on here or Ebay it.
Under the circumstances I canít give it away really cheap but understand itís by no means new.
RIBBED For extra pleasure.
