I live in Poole, so the Boatshow would great I just have no time to get down there during the week but might try to get there next weekend. I just hate crowds at events like that but I might brave it and come next weekend.

I believe it was the last unsold Generation 430 in the country (certainly the last at BHG in Lymington and I understand they're the sole UK importer). It was their showroom demo boat, though it had never had an engine installed and is yet to get wet.

They were selling it off as Walker Bay have now replaced the 430 model with the Generation 450 - though the only difference seems to be that the sponsons have been extended 20cms to facilitate an uprating of the max engine power from 60hp to 75hp.

All in all I hope to have it in the water for something around 8k off of list price.

Well, as I work at a hospital, I guess it's quite appropriate.

Last one had white tubes too, so I'm used to keeping it clean, and I couldn't have afforded it either, but for the fact BHG were keen to sell
