Good price?

What do ye make of this:

And on boatshed (with more pics):

The tubes look very worn, but a good polish might bring them up?

The boat is about 8 or 9 years old but there aren't too many hours on the engine. Loads of photos so nothing to hide. I wouldn't buy without a proper look first though. If it's sound it would be a great buy.

I've e-mailed the seller a few times, no response (eBay)... Don't want to go through BoatShed if possible, prefer a direct private sale where I can actually talk and meet the buyer.. I'll keep trying

Assuming it's got nothing major to hide then I'd say it looks like a genuine bargain.

There may not be much you can do with the tubes as it looks like the blue hypalon has faded in the sunlight, but it's probably only cosmetic.

It's all well and good saying that, but you know you want your pride and joy to be perfect - I'd probably en dup getting the damn thing re-tubed!

Orange is the ONLY colour for PROPER ribs btw

I'm surprised that she hasn't sold though, I mean that's an excellent price and she's been on the market for a long time (I can remember seeing it for sale last season) .... Wonder if someone local to it would be willing to inspect it. Worn tubes wouldn't bother me as long as they were sound mechanically
