i search a couple of times a day and have been to see a few on the various sites, i am prefering to spend less than 20k if i can, i love pictons but not to everyones taste, i am trying to gauge value so that i dont lose my shirt when i come to sell it, also trying to strike a balance between fun for me and fun for the family. Dave Picton is great and he has been calling me when he gets some in over the past week but they have been a bit too pricy for what i ideally want to pay.
i have my eye on about 5 boat options now and i am waiting for the right one at the right price or negotiations to step up a gear
If i was to sell the sheltie i would go for the 32 k one on your thread as i spotted it as soon as it was listed, but, we have so much fun on the river that i need to keep that boat as the kids love it and going away for 9 days at a time on the boat along the thames is brill.
also a trailer is a must as i dont keep in the water, plus i travel around and want to try different places
if anyone out there has a 2000/2001 picton cobra gen 2, blue, good seats, good trailer, and a 250/275 on the back or a 7.5 osprey vipermax with front sundeck, adventurer low style helm, twin single jockeys, rear bench seat with a 250/275/300 on the back then give me a shout..........i want your boat.
ps i dont mind a "see me girls" on the back...haha
