If you can find a 4.7SR Rogue Wave will be round on his hands and knees
Seriously, 4.7s are very rare, and infrequently come up. The 5.4's are plentiful with anything ranging from a full ready to go package with a recent motor at around 6.5k+ to around 500 for a bare hull in need of TLC. Keep an eye on ebay, boatsandoutboards.co.uk, and not to forget www.freeads.net www.adtrader.co.uk
good luck,

Alex

Hi Rugrat

I might know where there's one going cheap with an engine too.

I'll make some enquiries.
