I had the same when I rang the guy, he wanted me to pay a deposit then he would get the boat ready

Unbelievable really - what's more worrying is that a few people must "believe" the adverts are genuine otherwise why bother advertising in the first place - the scams must work!!

Looks like a 5.4 that has been retubed at some point. The transom has a dirty great bit of alloy stuck against it for some reason. Transom could be rotten.

I wouldn't touch it at that price.

Looks like the plate on the transom has been put there to fill the cut out in? Could be an XL leg on the yam.

Sorry just looked again, it doesn't cover the whole transom so maybe it's just as reinforcement. Worth going to look at before you bid.

The hull itself may be fine but I would question the plate on the transom. It may be fine but its been installed for a reason.

Best thing is to go have a look Bob, I think it 'looks' ok by the photos' but others with allot more experience maybe able to spot things.
