I love the way people on RIBnet love to comment on things they havn't actually seen
I shall set the record straight. I am selling the boat as many of you will know from the ebay id. It is a very good project. As far as I am concerned the hull (and the transom) are perfectly useable with a bit of tidying. The transom does have several holes where the outdrive once was, and as the ebay as says I would fix this by resealing them as a precaution and then replacing the tatty plate to something more tidy, and to reinforce the transom. The tubes (again as the ebay ad says) are usable but tatty. I intend to clean them over the weekend with some boatcare uk majic ribcleaner which should bring them up a lot better. I shall update the ebay ad with pics when I have done this.
The trailer included in the ad again is perfectly sound and useable. I have not posted photos of it as it is currently not in Porstmouth. I will be taking photos of it on Sunday morning and again will update when I have these.
The a-aframe is made of stainless tubing. It is very strong and I can confirm is not made of scaffold poles.
As the ad says anyone is welcome to view it. Just email/pm me and we can arrange a time for a viewing.
Yes the boat will require money and time spent on it to get it looking nice again. However I think this will be more than worth it. When you consider the price tidy examples of this model of a similar age go for I think you will agree.
