Boat looks alight to me. Tubes will probably clean up with some elbow grease and toxic chemicals

The RIB is antifouled, which is a bit nasty and suggests it has spent time on the water/in the sun. It looks OK however. Let's face it, 600 won't fill some RIB's fuel tanks, so best not quibble over 50 here or there...

Freston Jr., when your parents get wind of this, you're soooo busted

Depends, I'm not actually a Knacker

If the kit is good and it's like might not be seen again for a while, then I'd bite the bullet and secure it - damn the 50, it wouldn't buy a bottle of Corryvreckan.

However, if there's no pressure and it's not Pukka kit, then by all means haggle a bit

I am 15...50 is a lot to me. Trust me, haggle away I will. Hell if I can get him down to 500 I will try. If you don't ask you don't get eh?

The secret is to explain how a rib will benefit THEM so much better. Then once they are putty you plant the deal

Oh that's easy. It's got a hard bottom so it's SAFER and USES LESS FUEL.

Nonsense, of course, but hey..
