That just HAS to be a joke!!!

"This is a very stable versitile rib you can use it for any purpose ,I recently sold the outboard on the photo so here it is nice and cheap ,this is ideal for divers as it has loads of space,more photos available,the galvanised trailer alone is worth half of the asking price.you can reach me on 01900 813697"

Nice and cheap??? He's asking £1400!!!! - Maybe it should be £140???

If the outboard fits upside down too, you could call it a Florida Everglades Air Boat.... er Rib!

Not sure I'd want to give him 700 quid for the trailer either.

What's more alarming is that he's some sort of dealer. He might come a cropper on the Trades Description Act when he says that it's "very stable"!

The last thing I built for a raft race was more stable that that.

Sea trial anyone?

He's really hoping-that was on ebay for £150ish a couple of months back and no-one bid.

It's on ebay now

definitely an interesting proposition

I'll do the sea trials if you all chip in for the insurance policy

Steady Guys! I think you're being a bit unfair. Just think of the fun you'd have on a boating lake with it! Slightly less stable than a peddelo, but a lot quicker. You might even catch a duck or two with it.

Codders built the thing!!! NICE! Come on Codders, we think it's lovely. Fancy doing a Channel trip in her with us next year. It'll make a bloody good radar deflector with all that free board! You set off now and we'll catch you up next June!

I'm not sure how many of these are out there, but one (perhaps the same boat) was listed on ebay about a year ago. There was a thread on rib.net with a link to that ebay listing which included the bottom most of the pictures below. I'll see if I can find the thread.
