Manic Rib on eBay



Quote:
This vessel is not for the faint-hearted. It will reach speeds above 100mph and has excellent seafaring characteristics.

This vessel is fitted with a speedo that over-reads by ohh, I'd say at least 30mph

Rather suspicious that the seller has not included the boat make or length!

More likely to be the owner's ID...
Any prospective bidder would be well advised to check out the owner's ID with BHG. Louise has noticed that the close-up picture of the console has bucket type race seats - does that match the picture taken outdoors?

Nah, I think the console pic shows the back of 'shaped' jockey seats rather than bucket seats. So it looks like the same boat. BWM Rapier 28 supposed to be a good hull. Only concern would be the somewhat checkered history of BWM and who actually built it and to what quality. Wouldn't personally want to run twin promax engines even over here in the land of cheap(er) petrol!

Looks like a great baot though - could be a good bargain for someone - would have gone for it myself if not already committed - running costs will be OUCH though!!!
