Whats this then?

Hi all


I came across a boat on boatshed which is being described as a one off scorpion, built for racing with no CE!!

What do the experts think? Has the vendor got it right?

http://norfolk.boatshed.com/register.php?boat=146646

Sounds like it needs to be sold and it goes in to an auction fairly soon

Can't tell if its a deal or a crock.

PH

Curiosity got the better - so I went looking and I think this is the boat in question

Scorpion RIB 7.75 Race Hull Boats for Sale

So with a 200 horse 2 stroke Yam with an insatiable thirst and no CE plate it certainly wouldn't be my cup of tea

That boat has been discussed on here before - fairly recently...

I remember - but just not where

That's the boat. I reckon it needs a load of work to make it usable for anything other than too tooling around on smooth water. Seats have got to go!!! Needs the foot throttle taking out and it has no electronics. As they say on Dragons Den "I'm out".
