I had a Chinook Sea Fury 5.8m which I sold last year. IMO a fantastic boat, great solid hull and very deep V. Was bombproof and seems so much more confidence inspiring than the 5.8m Viking Tornado I've got now,

RIBase
In their day, the deep "V" Chinooks were the boat of choice for dive clubs / divers. they were good sea boats & bomb proof. They did need plenty of horses though.

Would this be the 270hp V8 for 8 700 ? Looks a nice package for the money
