What's the verdict on this beauty? Would it make a nice Rib with the daft Bimini taken off? Or is it a ridiculous looking thing? I can't make my mind up.

I thought it looked pretty cool with the lights along the t-top.

Nice looking RIB may well have had a retube at some point.
- bimini thing looks awful, may be better if it wasn't so tall.
-Kernow style 'seat'
-those 150HP Johnsons are very thirsty
See how much it goes for....

My Johnson 150VRO was very thirsty on my Ocean 625.

Cruising at 25knots was over 2.5 l/mile, and god only knows how much at WOT(32Kn).

Two or three hours on the Solent was 60 to 80 quid.

It made the boat un-useable as it was just too expensive to run.

Could carry a nice set of ladders on the roof rack.

RIBase
I'm not surprised it's cheap-the guy is stupid enough to post that he tried to repair it and has no real idea. If he didn't know about the choke what else doesn't he know?!

I don't like the bimini top either

<edit> Hang on, it's on ebay....It's waaaay too cheap. It's insane on there at the moment. Just sold my old blueband on there as spares/repair.... for 525 and it had 79 watchers!
