The 5dash5 used to be the wet dream boat divers in the 80s, it was the first mass market "proper" RIB that moved away from the flat, low bow, shallow "V" Searider clones. Still a good looking boat, RIBs haven't moved on much when you think about it.

As dreams go Pikey, RIBs have got a lot drier since then

The only thing better than a Searider IMHO
Pretty sure I saw this before it was tidied up and if its the same boat I would be careful. Tubes looked very tired but even at 8k its a great hull and engine but ask about the tubes and at least get good pics before bidding. I suppose with all boats of this a retube is a possibility. It may even have been retubed after I saw it as those tubes in the pics look very very good.

Like I say it may not be the same one I saw. It was at my fabricators getting an A Frame made for it a couple of months ago.

15hrs left and it's only at 4.7k

Steady on old bean, think about it; if you buy a capable boat of your own.....You'll have to re-write the HP book of excuses.
