a bargain project?

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F103269/

Can anyone tell what size it is? a 5.4m or one of those 4.7m that rogue wave loves so much?!

Got to be perfect for someone here.

Don't think it's a 5.4-not enough rope handles.


Could be an SR4 that's been photographed at that angle to make it look bigger?

Think the deck is the wrong shape for a 5.4, and the tubes look too big compared to the transom.

looks like a 4 to me, but then I've never met a 4.7.

Mind you if the inner and outer have been recoated (including the transom by the looks of it) it could hide any number of little nightmares. Of course it could also be in great condition.

That's very optimistic of you Mike!
I'd be more inclined to follow your initial thoughts. Why re-coat a perfectly good hull, just to sell it?
Looks like an old SR4.00 to me too.

Pretty sure it's a 4m - definitely not a 5.4, as the 5.4's have a higher transom, with a cutout for the engine. The 5.4's also have (generally) a raised "lump" offset to on side that the console sits on.

And it can't be a 4.7, as Rogue Wave would have bought it by now

On eBay as well - says it's 4m, with more pics.

If you look at the pictures on ebay there’s also a console in one and a rib without tubes in front?
So is the tent to help the epoxy dry?
