Force 4 research

Hi everyone,
I have been offered a force 4 rib + dt28hp + trailer as a package and I`m trying to research a little information. The guy selling is a lttle vague about the boat although he assures me that it has no punctures, repairs or scuffs. The engine I am ok with as I`ve tinkered with a few in my time. I just wondered if anyone could tell me a little more about the boats capabilities, passenger limits and so on.
I`ve allready got a river/estuary cruiser however the world of the rib is completely new to me so any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Andy

Would this be the one in Diss by any chance???

I contacted him about this and I was on the verge of buying it (cos he was doing me a very good price). Then he kept moving the goal posts and generally messing me around. If I were you I would steer clear; the engine cowl is very tatty and needs repainting, the pull-start doesn't work at the moment, and he has never actualy seen the engine running. The trailer has been repainted so presumably is a bit of a rust heap. As for the boat it's self, it's pretty dirty.

Still if you can get it for a reallyyy good price then you havn't got much to loose

Thanks

Hi Tim,
Yes, this is the man from Diss. I offered him a SILLY price about 3 weeks ago and I got an email last night accepting the offer. Have you seen the boat in the flesh so to speak??

I havn't seen it in the flesh but I have spoken to him (or his son?) extensivly and seen a number of photos of it. I offered him 400 originally but he riased it to 600 then back to 500 without the engine. I got so confused I told I wasnt interested.
