If he manages to buy this one for 17500, then he's done alright and I'll be getting in touch with the seller to see if he's got anything else for sale.
Easier still, ignore Timw's posts. They hold no value other than to stir-up a bit of a row. He freely admits in past posts to being 'no expert' and being 'new to ribbing'
An 'expert' in the art of 'winding-up' perhaps.

That why the resale prices are falling so sharply.

Since selling my boat I have had a couple of Rib-eye's. They are fantastic, can't beat are talking about steaks here arnt we? It's the only ribeye I can think of that is better than a vipermax!
