I would'nt trust that trailer once you've rigged the boat it's ropey as hell, Gary's had that for years and it's done some mileage!

That is a beautiful looking Rib Nugent and I'm really pleased that you managed to get her. I was reading the unfolding drama yesterday and hoping things would turn out okay for you.


Now, if you'd be interested in swapping for a Flatacraft 4 I might just be able to see my way to clear to doing a deal............

Glad to see you got your boat, and hope you get it sorted ASAP.
Nick that Opti is a left handed one, so it goes the wrong way! Will only work as a twin setup, hence the price and why he's being trying to sell it for a while.

It can still be used as a single, although getting hold of the prop will be difficult! But it is a good price!

You are correct actually, it is possible with a prop change. I got in a bit of a muddle! Heres the original thread I posted when I first spotted it:

Bargain Optimax!

Er... 175 opti's are very rare in the UK. When i was buying i wanted a 175 but they were loads more money for not quite so much more power, i think Barrus keep stock of 150's where as 175's are special order. Remember, the 150 is still a 2.5li v6, it's just detuned / ECU mapping difference to the 175.

I know where there is a 150 less than a yr old going cheap, still on a boat but he's upgrading to a 200.

I can also get you a good price on a 150 or 175 but (although it seams a shame) i suspect common sense (prehaps £2k saving) might make you choose a 150. Let me know.

*edit* oh, luvley boat BTW!
