just a word of warning, have a look at the sellers feedback rating (-1!)

I personally wouldn't be too bothered by the negative feedback in this case. Reading the comments I would be more concerned about the person who gave the negative feedback, and give this guy the benefit of the doubt.

I'm not suggesting that normal precautions should be taken, but I wouldn't dismiss it out of hand.

It says that that it was an ebay scam, and he was advised by another ebayer not to go through with it.

Doesn't look like a bad boat, console looks recent, good engine, but maybe a little underpowered. The tubes look like they have been worked on at the front though. It has met its reserve at only 1500! One to keep an eye on.

aternoon all - thanks for the heads up - 30 is underpowered but I guess could be sold on - what would it be worth?

Being a yammie, I think you would get just under a grand. More if its electric start and autolube, depends on the year. The yamaha triples are quite sought after.

I originally got mine with a 30hp, never had it running to be honest, but the guy who had it before used it as a dive boat with 5 peeps on board and said it did manage to plane - I would check with tony on this

I seem to remember Phil Davies saying he gets 26 knots with his Honda 30HP 4 stroke - which is quite respectable considering how little fuel he is probably using.

I e-mailed the seller and he said he'd take 2,750 for it and end the auction.

I reckon that's a bit much for any 4m searider, so suggest keeping an eye on it on eBay!
