Hi Jason. Did you own a Wetline rib? I'm going to look at a 480 on Saturday and can't find anything about them at all online.

Would be great if you could tell me anything at all.

Thanks,

Nick

I had a poke about a couple in largs that was for sale, would depend what you want it for really.

The build quality was meh, but it would be okay for occasional local days out I would suggest, there is literally no V to talk about so it will slam in any chop.

I don't know what money you are looking at for this 480 to say if it is worth buying or not.

Btw this is a 2013 thread!

Love revitalising the old ones!

It's this: https://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/w...ler/1304885903

Slightly concerned about age of engine too tbh.

Looks the same one, overpriced imo.

Those are okay engines if it has been looked after.

Now is not the time to be buying a rib, 5 grand maybe better spent in a few months.

Yeah, I know, but the mood has taken me. Probably won't bother with this one but it's only over the bridge so might as well take a look.

Interesting that it's been doing the rounds.

There's an old Avon in Biggar that might do, but the looking is half the fun.

Cheers for the advice.
