Cheers Nasher - I had been looking through your days of high fashion in those pics before I posted ....
I think your number went when various phones have been dropped / sunk etc . I reckon its got to be an ideal toy to leave in a marina for peanuts and not worry if the tubes scratch against the pontoon etc .
Were/are they hypalon ( I assume so to have lasted ) ? Woudl make fixing one simpler.
Will be looking over the next month or two for one that can take a bit of TLC but also a bit of a bashing without too much worry ( and of course cost ). Of course the ideal would be a 'proper' SR4 - back to back seats etc - but quality costs and is rare. Something just appeals to me about back to back seating.
I reckon they are cheaper as they can take a smaller engine - have a shallower V than an SR so can 'go' with less HP but hopefully will sufferless transom problems as a result ....
If you see or hear of one let me know !
