That's an expensive way to get Channel 0

lol not for that reason, we will continue to discuss the need for that channel with the coastguard.

Went to have a look at it and i must say its very impressive bit of kit, nicely put together and solid construction.

We have put the 2006 Humber up for sale on Ebay with a new Yam 115hp extra long shaft on the back and raised transom (only done 5 hrs), this has resolved any flooding issues from before.

We Hope to have the ex Cowes ILB in active service with us 1st November under the call sign "Venturer Rescue Two", will give us couple of weekends to get the crews used to her.

Matt, your start price is 15k and their is a reserve above that. I think your asking too much. If you look back through Ribnet for sale section you will see what your competing against.

Hiya Pete,

Humber are advertising a 2008 6.3 with Suzuki 140 on their website for a wopping 22,295, no electronics or gear, no trailer etc
http://www.ribworld.co.uk/ribs-detail.asp?testid=217

With that in mind i think our 2006 6.3 Humber is at reasonable value, with a brand new engine only 5 hours, all electronics kept on board + the road trailer.?

Cheers

Matt

Realistically, the new owner will have to remove the wording from the tubes (unless you do it 1st) and the reserve plus the 15k start price isn't condusive to bidding on an ex rescue boat either.

For what it's worth, it's had hardly any use and is an impressive looking boat. I'd personally clean the wording off the tubes then relist it.

Depending on who buys the boat will depend on what if anything gets taken off, i.e Blue lights , lettering etc.

We will see how it goes as on ebay for a week, all points have been considered though and passed to Tiffy.
thanks for the input, much appreciated

Cheers

Matt

I don't know what an "extreme jockey seat moudle" is but I think I want one!

Not sure about the 100 litre fuel capacity tho, surely that can't be right with 140hp on the back?
