Bit of a concern

Should anyone be watching this boat on ebay - ex rescue boat | eBay


be a little aware of the seller.

This was my first rib and I sold her part exchange last year. The pics on ebay are a mixture of some older ones I used for the PX and a couple of new ones.

I asked a couple of questions of the seller, one being about the A frame, as the older pictures don't have the frame showing; I didn't add it until later.

He's replied stating that the frame was added straight after the pics were taken, not quite right and anyone that is willing to fabricate answers may just fabricate others.

To be fair she was a great little boat for moderate water, a great engine and newish trailer with new wheels and bearings, when I sold her!

Well overpriced at present but so long as the current owner has done no damage a nice little inshore toy.

Somehow, the transgender bit, the pornstar bit and the no feedback bit all leave me equally concerned. Combined, "I'm out" (...and not that way )

The owner is local to me so I could check it out for any interested people although I'm not sure I want to meet a seller with that name!
