i just spoke to a local surveyor, very nice chap.

he will survey the boat/engine/trailer for me so that should be all good.

he has mentioned he doesn't like to survey boats when he can't try the motor in the water so thankfully this rib is on a wet berth just now so that shouldn't be an issue.

cheers

little update as promised folks.

the rib has fell through due to the deck being rotten as per others on this forum having same issue.

i also noticed in one of the pics i requested that the transom has bubbles formed, i don't know what they are but needless to say it set alarm bells off. BHG marine kindly went and checked it out before my surveyor travelled there this morning and advised they had a look yesterday after my bubbles comments and they noticed it's in a bad way underneath.

very hard to tell looking externally as the rib looks minted in the pics apart from the bubbles in transom so a little warning to my fellow newbies-

1. always get good pictures if possible (if like me it's 500 miles to go see it)

2. get a reputable surveyor everytime.

3. if you need a boat transported then check out www.shiply.com. i was quoted 269 to put the boat on a lowloader and bring it 498 miles to be exact=BARGAIN!

in the mean time the search goes on for my RIB...........

cheers
