Another Project for the winter!

I've had my eye on this for 4 years, blatently uncared for and used as a rubbish skip - now shes mine!!

I dont really know the history, cleared 2 massive bins worth of crap, bottles, mud, woodlice! wood, wiring, coke cans, etc

throttle levers are missing and cables have been snipped so Im guess some one has swiped that along with the steering wheel and top cover of the console!?!

The hull is very sound, no serial number but looks better nick than mine other one!! - and its holds air I checked this before bidding, will have more pics on saturday when it gets the hosepipe

The engine turns over by hand and gears engage and all turns freely, 2 plugs are gone by it makes the right noises

Nice one Olly!

Not surprised Nos wants that A-frame, looks proper industrial like

If the hull's better than your other one, do you reckon you might end up using this as your own boat? If you manage to get the engine running well are you tempted to replace the Yamaha with it?

Can't believe you've got two 5.4's!! Wish I had enough room for one

Winter Project

Looks like a little work - pity plugs are missing. Looks like it might make quite a tasty toy if you set to. Good luck. Keep the pictures coming.

Looks like it's made for the job, also looks like someone's attempted it already by tying a fender to it, got a feeling it might take a little more than that
