eBay US RIB

This line from the description is particularly intriging:

"Bow & stern MK58 Machine Gun mounts removed(but included if desired)."

I have no affiliations with the seller, etc, etc, etc...

Looks like it might be a good buy for someone!

I wonder if it had a jet drive originally -- I've never seen a RIB with a mid mounted engine and outdrive before.

It won't suit Garfish though:

"No wood used in construction"

Think of the losses he'll make if everyone went to that construction method

How easy would it be for an international purchaser to get the MK 58 Machine Guns? The mounts would look silly without them!

Interesting - motor and outdrive connected by 5' prop shaft! no reason why not I suppose, and does put motor in boat centre - just got to allow for a prop tunnel. Anyone in the UK done this or thought about it?
