1. Depends how long the string is, but a lot less than you think.
2. Yes or No or possibly maybe ?

Welcome to rib.net.

well, maybe yes or no.

need more info to give you a better idea of whether to bother with it.

i.e cost, what kit is with the boat, condition of tubes/hull/deck/transom etc.

they are good boats so good chance it would be a good rib.........depends on the above if you have more info/pics.

cheers

There seems to be a lot of "whats it worth" about at the minute. On here you will get 3 replies:

1. A value with a 10 fold range because it very much depends on a lot of things you haven't told us and even then there will be variables like two people near the boat want it and are prepared to pay a bit extra to avoid travelling or no-one near its interested and so everyone has to travel and doesn't want to.

2. "Its worth what someone will pay for it" - never really helpful but a reasonable fact

3. How long is a piece of string

There are 6 key parts to the value:

- Location
- Trailer
- Hull
- Engine
- Tubes
- Electronics & Extras

The boys on here did a refurb on a 5.4m SR for charity last year. It was a beautiful output on a good second hand trailer with new tubes and a good Yam 90 and loads of extras. I think it went for under 20k. But you probably shouldn't even be thinking of a figure 1/10th that without the engine, trailer, electronics and work needed on the hull. If it needs re-toobed that could cost 4k. If it needs work - set a budget and tripple it.

You should be able to get SR5.4 parts for almost all bits.
