I don't think that's a 5.5, it looks more like a 5.3 or 5.1 which are completely different hulls to 5.5 and 5.8. PVC tubes as standard on these, it would be worth checking the bulkheads on the tubes as that's usually the first thing to go when they are at the end of their life.
It's a narrow beam boat and dare I say- it does not perform as well as the 5.5 IMHO.
Good engine and the trailer looks ok.

hi, just spotted your location in Liverpool, Jeff Hutcheon (on Ribnet) is selling a nice Tornado, and he's only on the Wirral, I'm sure he'll be happy to haggle

Tornado 4.8

Hi thanks for your help.


I'm no longer in liverpool now but living in jersey, Channel Islands.

There is a tornado available but its got a force engine which I have been told is not the best.

Looking at a bombard explorer as well
