yes looks interesting - i noticed it this morning - perhaps interested ribnet members should arrange a 'gentlepersons' agreement so that don't end up bidding against each other, or is this naive/unethical?

Caution advised...

trailer is in fact splendidly illegal - very rusty, didn't seem to fit the boat, and at least 6" lateral play in one wheel rim. Tubes looked ok but clearly aging the most worrying aspect is cracking/splintering fibreglass under the transom with some evidence of a bodged repair - also of note there are several large pebbles inside the hull visible from the drain port, curious.

As has been commented earlier advisable to view before buying on ebay - not this time for me anyway
