It's the blown ply you can see in the transom that's the biggest turn off. That RIB is best left to someone who knows how to sort it. I wouldn't know where to start!
5.4SR's come up allot on the web, you'll get one soon

Knot Yet, you did the right thing by walking away.

Thanks Nos - whilst gutted I'm much happier now I know I've done the right thing - at the end of the day I want to enjoy the experience and part of that is being confident in the boat - not sure I'd have ever managed it in this one

Thanks all

J

Personally, I wouldn't want it - too much weight up there for my liking and if the boat were to tip over, then you'd need the engine, tanks, etc to be inversion-proofed, to get the full benefit of the self-righting gear.

I expect it's worth around 200-250 if it's all working ok, 150-200 if it's not and you're just getting a big chunky A-frame.

Not really interested in the self righting gear mate. Just a big chunk A frame!

Remind me what the max transom weight of your SR5.4 is?

Because with a 115 you don't have enough weight on the back?
Surely a seriously industrial looking a-frame would look odd sitting alongside your armitage shanks console?
