ebay bargain?

..or not??

clicky

Having looked at the piccy over the last few days, not sure it would be practical for my use.. But for 2k, it seems to be an awfully cheap 5.5m rib..

Wasn't someone looking for a 4m RIB with a budget of 3000 recently?

I bet he didn't think that a cabin RIB would be in his budget!

Does look a nice bargain and you get too keep nice and dry when stuffing through waves. Only an hour and 20 mins left, so make your bid now.

It's been tempting to buy the 5.5m, then sell the 4m for more than the 5.5 cost.. But something keeps telling me it's too good to be true.. (And amazingly enough, it's not the wife this time.. )

I think the things, (some possibly silly), that have put me off are the fact your standing, (sitting on a jockey console seems half the fun of ribbing), plus I quite like the idea of an open bowed rib, (mine isn't), and when going slowly, trailing your hands over the front of a boat is a nice feeling, and finally you've lost half the open space of the rib..

Tho will probably regret it next year when looking to upgrade, and finding nothing decent under 8k..
