Can only say it as I find it. Not a bad hull just a bit wet from the fwd quarter but with all that weight in it. It's just not balanced right

Don't need to sell myself. Just pointing out how I can give this man some sound advice. Unless you know better than me. I will always bow to your experience

Not strictly true Pete. But they weren't all marine guys. When you look at it. The boats are 12 years old and all 62 were built in about 3 months and then thrashed to death in a mad race. I repaired a lot when they came back some were in a bad way

Could be "couldn't stand the weather" too so my guess is he's had two of em and the latter was called "won't get fooled again" :hide

I almost bought one last month with said Honda 130 from north Wales boat shed - priced 10,000 but they accepted 6,000 which seem a hell of a drop for a first offer acceptance!
