Gumtree Searider worth saving

Spotted this on Gumtree the other day

https://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/a...ine/1319180282

£500 with a yamaha 2 stroke. These are probably the best Gumtree ad pics yet!!!

I dont know if it's been abandoned and somebody is just trying there luck but I've allready bought 1 boat this month!

Surely gotta be worth it with that engine even if it is a breaker

I wouldn't give it a second glance. That motor has obviously been submerged for a period of time and that boat has been neglected for quite a while.

Only the hopelessly romantic need apply.

Good luck to anyone that takes it on but I would see that as an excuse to build a 'new' Searider.

I thought that might happen so I took a note of the phone number on the advert!

07738170958

Even if the engine has been dipped its gotta be worth a £300 take it away offer in my opinion.

Good luck!

I don't think it's worth anything and it'll cost about £500 to get it removed and properly scrapped/recycled.

It's time for it to go to the great boatyard in the sky.

The right person could get that going well I recon. No need to throw stuff away just because it needs some work. It aint always about the money either sometimes it is about the challenge and sense of acheivement
