I was thinking that, also if you enlarge the pic of the hull it looks like a hand painted job, 'definitely recommend viewing first!

Can never understand what the problem is with hand painting a hull if its done properly. Certainly better than having a drab dirty looking one?

A hand painted job is fine, the photo's look a bit misleading. I've seen some very impressive painted tubes, i think its best to cover the tubes in fairy liquid and water to check for any leaks when buying.

Went to see the boat this afternoon - decided against buying - unfortunately doesn't look as good close up - tube paint beginning to peel in a number of areas/inconsistently applied - hull paint also flaking - steering functional but evidence of corrosion - console seat quite small - trailer doesn't really fit the hull being a recent match up, too big really - quite an old looking snipe with bunks and side rollers, transverse leaf spring suspension - bunks have scraped some paint off the hull - wheel bearings ok some play - some corrosion on the trailer painted over...

I wasn't 100% on the transom either - big alloy plate screwed to the back - prodded in the mounting holes not sure if a bit spongey.

So all in all decided to either spend a bit more or get something that hasn't been tarted up
