never ceases to amaze me the stuff like this you see around - cars boats - even planes - usually left in a field!!!

When will farmers ever learn - no matter how many Land Rovers you plant in a field(or RIBS) they will never grow!!!

Judging by the painted numbers on the 'rude looks like the engine could be ex-RNLI. Boat looks like a 5.4 Searider to me? Would make a good project for someone but whoever owns it obviously doesn't deserve to have a boat.
Someone should phone up the DVLA and find out who owns that number plate on the lightboard and then put a really low offer in for it.

I think it only needs a clean ( albeit a good one) the console is under a cover and the mould on the tubes say it hasn't ben in the water for a year or so (probably 2). the licences on the back say it was last in the water in the 2001 season

But the Avons are made proper so the tubes probably won't be porous yet.

You'd probably get that back up to scratch in three daysproviding the engine is OK

Have to agree with Mr. Codprawn on this.

Andre and I see so many RIBs just left to the elements.

Big shame.

My Gemini is my pride and joy. I couldn't leave a RIB like that after the amount I have invested in mine.

Oh yes and these are ribs belonging to diving club. Some people just do not care at all. They are only divers why should we be suprised. I am sure on the other hand that they take great care of their diving gear

Rogues right yet again, with some TLC that baby could be brought back to life, a bargain if bought at the right price.
