Did it have a Honda 90 on it ? There's one up by you for a similar figure, older boat but 3 year old motor

Nope 140 suz. 2004 boat, stolen and recovered, retubed in white...on gumtree ...might still be up...

Oh and the frame had taken a hit at some point..enough to bend it...

12k plus all that work doesn't sound like much of a bargain to me unless its a lot newer than '04.

I've seen what people want for RC585's when sorted, but whether they get it or not is another matter.

That's a lot of money for a 9 year old stolen/recovered boat.

It is - but I'd not have paid that much for it . by all accounts he turned down 11.5k from a guy in Sweden - but that could well have been a line....I told him he should have taken it !

Oh well on to the next - maybe one of the banana boys will sell me of thier for 10K ?.......

Last year (feb 2012) I sold my '05 RC585 for 15k. Boat had done around 130 hrs, trailer had been professional rebuilt the year before when I'd had it converted from disc brakes to drums, boat was pretty much fully spec'd and the Suzuki df140 was only 8 months old (25 hrs use).

If I'd wanted to wait I could probably have got another 2k for it but the one you looked at looks pretty expensive to me.

Interesting - I'm sure the right one for me will pop up at some point in the next 12 months ! Until then small is the new big when it comes to boating ....

Simple cheap fun in the bombard all the way !!! ( even after its fixed its still going to be cheap as chips ! )
