6.3m Humber Ocean Pro on eBay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...483862301&rd=1

What do you think? The hull does look very faded for a year-old boat. Is there anything you can do about that short of a re-tube?

What would the performance be like with the fitted 115hp motor?

Your right tubes do look awful for an Apr 04 hull, so is there something your not being told. Like the tubes came off another boat and its only the GRP hull that was new in Apr 04 ? they claim 3 years warranty left on the tubes but I thought Humber offered a 5 year warranty ?

Trailer looks like it might by an American one, with all the problems of tow hitch sizes etc.

Yamaha looks a sensible size for the hull, but were are the instruments for the engine ?

I have a Humber 6.3, new in August 2002. It has navy blue tubes which are probably as worse a colour as any for fading. It too has been out in quite a lot of sun. My tubes havn't faded yet!

Be very wary. Looks odd to me!

Humber stopped using those style handles and "H" logos more than 3 years ago.
Reckon it's a new hull and 2nd hand tubes.
