Something doesn't feel right about this, saw it advertised on ebay back in January I was tempted to bid until I read the forums re old tornado's and thier tube problems. I think it finally sold for about £3.5 k

Photos look like hyperlon, oh and several sq feet of black witch on the bow trailer looks american,. Still if its genuine and your paying cash could be good especially if some of those tubes from Henshaws could be made to fit.

Yeah. I was hoping no-one would notice it!

Is it just the photos or is that console offcentre?

Oops sorry Matt, now the whole world knows about it. The console isn't one from Tornado, looks like a capaldi one he used to fit to Rimmini Ribs. Yes I think its off centre too.

No probs Pete, I'm spooked by it being the 3rd time on ebay since November so I'm not going to push it anymore. It suggests to me that something's wrong with it.

Yes dreadful engine even if it is 2004 and only 25 hours, isn't that a bit low btw for 3 years ?

Now how about a nice Osprey Sea Harrier with a Yamaha instead

I was thinking more of there being a problem with the boat
I don't have a hope in hell of getting a Sea Harrier into my garage to work on it

Tube problems would be enough- It's cheaper on sub-6m boats to buy a bare hull than to buy a hull that has to be retubed.

Of course you do, as long as you land it nice and steady....might not be good for the roof though!

Oh, not that sort of Sea Harrier....
