The shed is back.

The "Ofspray" is back on eBay. Suffice to say, it's not an Osprey. If you have any sense, please don't buy it. I can't be bothered searching for the numerous threads about this heap of junk, but anything that changes hands so regularly can't be good news. Avoid!

Has anybody actually seen it in person? Does it really exist or is it the ghost RIB of eBay?

More to the point, at how incredibly cheap it is how come nobody's kept it?

It's cheap enough that usually some optimistic newbie will buy it before discovering he can't afford to fix it or run it.

It may be worth an offer to get the engine & sell on and just dump the boat. At what price would that become a viable option? Ie. How much is that engine worth alone

Is it the engine or the boat that is bad?

Or is it just a set up that's too extreme?

It's a home made boats from splashed moulds so I think the assumption is that it's not the most....reliably built boat. I think the engine looks ok, but not for that boat!
