Found a gem of a 470 recently. unused for the last 7 years but stored well under its own cover and when the previous owner couldn't start it, took it to a boat storage park and decided to sell it.
Similar to my Last MOD SR 4.7,its being treated to a no expense refurb to get it to a really high usable standard.
The tubes were really well preserved and not worn at all, Hull was also in pretty good shape apart from the holes all being blocked of with fibre glass and a few scratches as you would expect on the rear.
The battery was not secured in any way and nor was the fuel tank.. bloody shocking really!
Engine is the original 2001 50 f/s with 400 Hours and after a little fettling sounds really nice now . I will be taking the carbs off and untrasonically cleaning them also with a rebuild kit etc etc.
I know there are some folks who would like to see it so here goes...
