Well seeing as he was unsure about the engine size and the length of the boat, I was never expecting his speed to be accurate.
What worries me is if you own a rib 9/10 it is one of your hobbies, therefore it interests you and you know alot about it. Your rib is not usually treated like an appliance, say a dishwasher! I am sure we all know our ribs inside out, the make of the console, engine, seats, instruments etc. I would therefore only buy a secondhand rib from an enthusisast because you know it has probably been looked after. From what I have read about this rib -I havent contacted him but I have read the email to Eddo and the advert, and this guy seems to know very little about it. Big difference between a 4.6m and a 5.4 and a 115HP and a 125HP. And the speed, mid thirty knots, nice and specific then. Now obviously, there could be a logical reason for the incorrect advert -maybe somebody else listed it on his behalf, but from what I have read I wouldn't touch that boat with Mirabella mast!
