There are alright but nothing special. Picton made speedboats for years then saw the market move to ribs so they followed suit with some fairly average ribs. About 92 time they bought out Sue Callow who was making Cobra which were a slight improvement so manufactured the two models along side each other.

If the price is really good and condition okay then yes buy it.

Well, it won't be very quick with 2 x50 hp, perhaps 25 knots but its cheap enough at the BIN price, so worth a bid.

Notice he has removed the brake shoes, plonker what that means is the gas strut in the tow bar is now taking all the braking force so its going to wear out and then start banging everytime you put the brakes on. Worth sorting it out because I doubt its under the 750 kg weight limit. Built in fuel tank nice, lots would have had 5 gallon red tanks which don't hold much.

Looks like an indespension trailer so parts whilst not particularly cheap are easy to buy with lots of dealers.
