Can't see it getting much interest without pics - how strange.

Looks like someone might get a bargain unless it's so rough it's better without the pictures!

Yes did think that but is says it's afloat so that must be a plus point?
worth a look if you in that part of the country.

I saw this a few days ago and phoned the seller. He sent me a very small pair of photos. It doesn't look that bad. Its been sat on a mooring for a while and the bottom needs a very good clean. The whole thing could do with painting. The engine runs and has just been serviced. It doesnt go into reverse (I suspect its a simple fix and may just be the gear link that needs adjusting) properly. There is a crack on the lower leg. This might be a bit worrying depending on the location and size.

Forgot to add that is has a few patches which have been done by the seller, badly (by his own admission). The port tube goes down totally after about 6 hours.

Might be a good fixer-upper for someone but I've seen an awful lot of those engines with no reverse. It may be a common fault...

Yeah a bit much considering it may need a new gearbox and a retube, not to mention no trailer with it.
