This one you mean?

It's fairly obvious it's got some bull going on-the not knowing the actual boat size plus a 10 knot top speed exaggeration set the alarm bells off.

How bad is it?

I looked on my own as i was early.I did phone him he asked me to stop off at a service station for an hour as i wondnt be able to park at his and the vechiles would be going and needed to get awaySo off course i obliged by doing top speed.On arival knocked .Nice lady said help yourselfTubes were more deflated than just the temperature change .Probably due to the bad patches on the inner bow.there were several.trailer bearin on starboardside very loose i,m sure i wouldnt get home.The engine photos must be old ones as they do not look like that.covers are bashed cracked and blistering.The top and bottom mount on one engine is so badly worn you will soon loose the engine(the tube cable steering would pass through-lower one is bolt that holds the trim ram/motor.The other outboard is also bad but the steering is holding that on.I know this is probably typical of ebay and i agree but after speaking to the owner a couple of times thought it would be different.I was only there for ten minutes on my own so didnt here them running.The outboards sit far too high on the transome so are very lightly to have bad cavitation.and to lower 2x 50hp hondas the weight the transome will be about 2 inches higher than the water level.
