I'd agree, if you bought the hull tank and toobs from Humber and got a good deal on a new Opti. I think you could bring in a new Humber Ocean Pro for around that money. I really like the Ocean Pro's and I think with the 150 opti It's is a good package. Only consider Dark grey or Dark blue toobs by the way they are a lot easier to keep looking good.
If you want to do that you are welcome to use my facilities for the fit out! i think you'd do an excellent job of it if your Avon is anything to go by
Having said all that Daniels boat was a cracker and fitted out almost up to Scorpion standards and I imagine has a very happy present owner. Ospreys are very good boats and well worth digging out Second hand.
I as you know am a strong advocate for Opti's but I wouldn't want to own one of the fkkr's out of warranty again and I wouldn't value a 7 year old one at more than 1600 quid. Your buying a problem at that age. Also beware of the engine hours becuse it is quite common for the Ecu's to be replaced during the warranty period ( I know of 4) and this process resets the engine hours to 0
Can I have first dibs on your Searider
