Ahh okay

It is hard to be objective - but equally it really is very very difficult to get one in excellent condition - I reckon Matt might be the best person to ask as he has bought and sold quite a few me thinks

Jxx

Just seen Mollers reply - out by 500 - thats pretty good for me!!!

For insurance tell them 4k & then ask what price for 2k - i bet its bugger all differance in premium - then tell them 4k and you'll be safe.

They're wanting me to take it to a yard to get a written quote, trouble is no one round here does RIB's.

I like your thinking Pete!

Nice to see the same old faces come out of the wood work as soon as an SR is mentioned, no doubt you'll be ringing all your friends to tell them and get them to post post some jokes about duck tape and plywood.

Blimey Phil - what a pain - we just had to say what we had bought it for and what each element - RIB/Engine/Trailer/Add Ons were now worth - what insurance are you with Phil

We did ours through Insurance 4 Boats - 6k worth of cover for 146 plus 150 excess

Seemed a good quote compared to many we had and also seems to cover all requirements - trouble with insurance is you never know if its any good until you really need it!

Trouble is I want to insure it for more than it was worth last year, due to console and an engine that actually works.
Might be easier to say I sold it and its a different boat!

Ahh I see - why not just try a different insurance company - might be worthwhile

I would second around 2k. JBT I believe will give you a written valuation for a small fee.
