or a 19" and weld the crank and rev the nuts off it
should be good for 45knots then, Matt gets 40Knots with a 90 and a 19"prop.
i am waiting for advice from fast fred

Its difficult to say without looking at it, but from the description and pictures i would say the tubes could do with a few hundered quid spent on them to tidy up, The engine cover needs respraying and a decal set,
The trailer will need new brakes fitting because AFAIK if the plated weight is over 750KGS then it must have brakes even if the actual weight is under 750ks. Then there's no electronics with it? so you're looking at 150 for a radio and 400 for a colour plotter.
i think you could easily spend 1500 on it to get it totally shipshape(assuming you do your own labour) which to my way of thinking means i wouldnt want to spend much more than a few grand on it,
I guess the engine is worth 1-1.2K the trailer maybe 500
and the boat about a grand?
that makes 3750 about a grand optomistic?
whats every one else think?

It belongs to a camp attendant who lives up the coast from me. He's recently stolen a 585 Ribtec, so the 535 is being 'cut loose'.


He goes by the name of 'Kernow' which is cornish for tosser.

I think it's about right - certainly not overly optimistic like some of the crud you see for sale. Ribtec's are expensive new and of the same quality as Ribcraft (certainly when the boat in question was made).

It's not a Ribtec, it's a SR5.4

Right I'm lost - is it not Kernow's 535 that's for sale at 3,750? If it's that Searider I wouldn't pay more than 2,500.
