It's interesting. I also emailed the seller and got a load of rubbish as a reply. As we all know it is an ex charter boat. The engine has done around 1000 hours. It lived on the water for the three years I owed it, and I know the chap that bought it from me kept it on a mooring. He claims he has been using it for the last year and it was in storage for the year before that. Interesting as I only sold it last year! I'm pleasantly surprised to see it's still in one piece; the clueless chap that bought it off me (not this chap I might ad) told me when he came to sea trial it that he had written the last one off by driving it into some rocks after a drink too many! That boat doesn't offer a particularly great ride if there's only a couple of you in it. This was the only boat Solent ever made with the console at the back. It doesn't work well - there is far too much weight at the back which means the bow rides very high unless you've got a few bodies up front to keep it down. As a result the ride is very slammy as the bow is almost always in the air.
Always interesting knowing the full story on something and listening to someone else's version of it
