What year are these ?

A friend has bought this, the guy he bought it from says the boat is 5 years & outboard is 3 years ?
The boat looks way older judging by the mould on the handles etc ! - 15 yrs maybe ??? hw can you tell the age on them ?
Is it a SR4 ???- Would this be hypalon or PVC ???

Hopefully going to get a pic of the serial number plate of the outboard - Will a Gertrude engine say the year on the plate or is it all done off serial numbers ?
The outboard has done no work...! - prop looks quite battered to me !!
& previously was in fresh water lake - corrosion starting on the leg by the water pump joint - 15 years old again ??

Many Thanks :-)

It's difficult to age something based on mould as it depends on storage and cleaning regime. Id expect a hull plate somewhere with some numbers on it (also molded in to hull somewhere?) then an Avon geek will tell you the age and possibly model.

Likewise with the engine.

If it's only 3 yrs old I think it'd had a hard life (the trim pin looks like a DIY replacement?). It's difficult to say from the prop as a week of intense but careless use could cause that damage or it could be 15 yrs old! The hood and leg looks pretty scratched etc whether it's just old or young and a bit neglected.

As poly says, mould isn't a good indicator, it can happen in a short time. As for the engine, you need to find the ID plate & note the model number & translate it here

Looks like 1999 as well, last two digits.
Not going there on value but 2K doesn't sound like a bargain.

I would say 2k for that is a good deal, with a bit of TLC you will have a great little Rib for the price of a second hand Sib!

It's definitely a 1999 boat, but to get an SR4 with an Etec 50 on for 2k is a pretty good deal anyway.

Good deal yes but it's not an Etec!
