Potential 2nd hander...

My eye has been caught by the Redbay 8.4m being offered here in these very pages.

My eight year old son tells me it looks too much like Martini II, which suggestion I am sure will make Matt most indignant.

Pros...

Fantastic hull design,
Loads of deck space with the jockey seats removed,
Option to refit the inboard.

Cons...

Would need a fair amount of work to get it to spec.
Twins are not my thing.
Possibly too big.

The diesel was a single installation if you went that way (you probably realised that sorry)

The temporary twin installation is not all bad, and the more it bugs me the more motivated I would be to find a nice diesel engine. That and the free fuel. And the lure of returning to jet drive.

I 'm sure there's been a Hamilton J/D for sale on here recently

Although I'd want to discuss the price, 10k engineless No mention of an electronics package etc, I guess you're paying for a lot of seats

Worth noting, quite a bit narrower than MII, internal beam 1.6m to my 1.9, external 2.77m to my 3.1m

Ps If I'm putting up a Floptilla page, can I copy+paste your blurb?

Update...

We have spotted a candidate, a Humber OP.

Not too old, loads of deck space. Hmm
