Or they realised it was under-priced and we'll see it re-listed at a higher figure in a few weeks....

The 4.7 is obviously held in very high regard here which obviously opens it up to lots of potential buyers but is this view held on a larger scale too?
To a non-Ribnet owner would it not just be a 4.7?

Any RIB that size would be a bargain at 700. The motor alone would be worth that much.

i wonder if they had to advertise it outside the club before a clubber could buy it, they would of put a low price on it so the clubber didn't pay over the odds when, wait for it, no one wanted it

It wasn't a scam but a legitimate sale.

I am not normally the lucky one but for once my luck changed and I was able to buy this boat.

It is not in to bad condition. Tubes are fairly tidy and hold air. Hull requires a bit of gel coat repair in a few places.
Engine is a 60hp Mariner four stroke, condition is not good and I am not sure if it is a runner.
The boat has lived all it's life on a reservoir and has a fair bit of limescale on the hull caused by the hard water, I am hoping this will be simple to remove.

The aim is to give the boat some TLC and tidy it all up. Then if I can find one, put a decent 70hp Yamaha or Tohatsu 2 stroke on the back. I will then keep the boat.

Paid the full asking price 700.

I think the staff in the sailing school office spent all morning fielding the enquiries regarding the boat.
I realised there was a stack of people lining up behind me so I grabbed it whilst I had the chance.

Well done that man!

If you need a motor I'm your man. Got a couple merc 75hp 2 strokes in at the moment and a steady stream coming in/out all the time.

I'd take the 60 4 st off your hands too for close to what you paid for the entire rig. PM if interested

Enjoy
