Yes, and just in time the market goes mad from Easter onwards.

With all due respect, they both look a bit ropey. However with a bit of TLC they should be OK. The main thing is to get the engine serviced (including the transom mounts, compressions etc) check hull's for cracks especially at the rear etc etc etc. Shop around on ebay and on this site for descent prices for replacements and essentials.

Above all ask for help and advice in these forums !

Both boats look like right bargains to me - I paid 3k for my first boat - didn't look like 6 X the boat though.

But then again I did sell it for a small profit so I couldn't have got ripped off.
