I can't see that being worth more than a few hundred pounds and only that much if the idea of the 'project' is as important as getting it finished and using it.

Heís looking for 2000Ä

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the replies.
The dirt is just the muck from the field.
The tubes I’m told will hold air, and slowly deflate over a week.
I’ve attached more photos from the original advert onto the link below.
He is looking for 2000€ I was considering 1800 but some of you may think I’m bonkers.

Thanks again to everyone taking the time to look and reply to the post

OMO i would look at what 5.5m boats are available and at what cost ready to go, then cost up that it might need new tubes possibly the baffals have failed if it all goes down over a week and that the fabric has too much UV damage to repair with minor pin holes all over the tubes. then its your time doing it up, taking it for repair, fitting an engine etc trailer to sort out. lets say your going to be around the £10000 mark some nice boats out there for that money

Assuming it's just dirt off the field, the transom is solid and there's no structural issues, then it's got to be worth a grand at least, maybe a little more. There's a decent s/s tow-hook on the back, console, and PVC tubes are easy enough to repair, unless of course it's structural like seams, etc.

There's a bit of work to refurbish of course, remove anti-foul, repair patches with 2-part PVC glue in the spring or under cover in a heated garage, gelcoat repairs, rig with new instruments and electrics, new or used trailer and of course the all important power-plant, whether you opt for second-hand 4-stroke or old school 2-stroke.

Like everything - do your research and be forensic.

Hi,

I have an engine lined up for it, a 90 Hp 4 stroke Mercury.

I recon it will cost me another 1000E materials and time to bring it up to a good standard, thats without new tubes of course.

I'd agree with others £1k is plenty to pay for it. Pvc or polyurethane tubes are far harder to repair than hypalon and may be just not worth it if it already has several patches.
Even if you save the tubes which isn't guaranteed, it will remain a limited value boat if its got a few patches already and you need to add more

Unless you have the knowledge to evaluate exactly what you are looking at in terms of condition ...and expence...you're time and expertise needed to it put 100% right and most importantly ..Seaworthy.
My advice would be to look elsewhere..(there are plenty of options out there )..or save up for something with a proven pedigree and/or less needed to do.
The fact you're asking the question probably indicates it's not the project for you.
Whatever you decide Good luck
