Is that boat only ( no engine) on a trailer ?

If its the whole lot its either a bargian or liable to be scam or about to sink ?

What age is it ?

If its a decent hull and tubed by someone 'good' it 'could' be OK ...but an engine + buts + seats will cost another maybe up to 1500 if you factor in all the bits etc
....

just my thoughts

The guy said it was retubed before he bought it and does not know who did it but he said it cost 750 to retube it does that sound about right as I thought a retube would be more than that. ?

Hmmm. sounds very cheap to me (for a decent retube)...even my alarm bells are ringing now and its not my money.

Have you got a pic or any other details ? Is it the orange one on ebay ?

Saw that one the other day. Looks reasonable for the money.

Nothing, providing the bearings are ok. It's a snipe trailer, pretty basic, but perfectly suitable for that boat.
