Thanks guys - I was very close to making a bad decision then - good advice!
I have to speak to the broker today about the 585.
Will probably offer sub 9K - I dont think he'll like it but then again I can always wait for the 'RIGHT' boat to come along !

Nick

Don't remind me about those Scorpions! - Lovely bits of kit!
I missed one by about a week - A 6.5 with a 115 V4 Yam - Very disappointed!

regarding pricing I am speaking from experince I have bought 4 boats now at the right price and one at the wrong price. It was an expensive lesson which I still regret.

And hence the name? (Won't Get Fooled Again) - "The Who" I presume!

(PS - the pepper theory - nice one!)

That's right It used to be called 'go the distance' but that was an insult to Walter Trout and the Trade Descriptions Act

On the subject of Ribtec 585.

I have one to sell ... about 10 years old I think. Engine is Yam 115 v4. Trailer is knackered, good for local launching only. Has a reasonably new Lowrance 15MT GPS/Sounder. Boat is in great order, engine has performed well over the years. The combination is great and performs very well at sea, the Ribtec 585 hull has a great reputation.

And so ... how much would you guys expect me to see it at. I was going to ask 5750.

I am in no rush to sell, cause I already have a new boat and running costs of two is negliable.

Any advice welcome.

Nick, I think you rang me yesterday about the 5.85 I had for sale.

I have sold 2 this year, the one you saw advertised and a 2000 model with loads of extras and a 135hp Merc Optimax, brand new trailer etc, it sold for 15k and it was totally like new.

I aggree with waveh, its very expensive for that year etc, I would pay about 7 to 8k for it.

With reference to the boat tho they are great, not many for sale as people hang onto them.

I would hang on and see what comes up.

Nick,
I would suggest that it is a lot of money for that set up. However, that boat is a good rib. I almost went for one in Bembridge early this year but was put onto a 6.5 Ribtec for 13,5 K. I think it was theWavehunper who put me onto it, (PS Thanks) That was a 2000 model with a Yam 115 on the back. I can tell you that i have had my boat out in some pretty horrible stuff and it was fantastic. So on the issue of Ribtec, i can vote for them.

I do know that there is a 585 with trailer (1999 i think) Blue/Yellow Ribtec with double jockeys available with Stuart at Lymington Marine Sales. Bought my first rib of Stuart and is a good mate. Wouldn't hurt to have a look as its only down the road from you.

If you want any more details give him a bell, 01590 610808 Fax:- 01590 610809 Mob:- 07710 969433


Hope this helps, need any more help drop me a PM

Regards
Stuart

Nick,
Sorry, but i was wrong. Stuart has a 6.55, year 2000 with a Yam 100 on the back, Garmin FF/GPS etc. A year 2002 trailer, double jockey etc all for 13.5K.

I am not on commision (Doh) so give him a call and see what you think.

Regards
Stuart
PS If you want a trial of a 6.5 give me a bell.
Stu

There is a lot od Stuarts on this Forum and my mum told me it was a very unusual name.

A 200 Ribtec for 13.5 k seemsa much better deal

cheers
Stuart
