Any suggestions on who it may be worth talking to would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Woody

Hi Captain pugwash

Thanks for the reply, I have already phoned about that one. Whisper said that there was a relatively large amount of work to be done on that one. Ironically Whisper bought the one I walked away from in Portsmouth which now seems like I made a major cock up!! I still live in hope!

Cheers
Woody

This was a nice boat last time I saw it.

a
I was talking to whisper about this boat and it was indeed a steal at the price being asked. I recently paid 3450 for an immaculte hull and toobs and felt pretty smug about it. by the time the Deja Voodoo project is finished the whole thing is going to cost itro 13k and I'll still be chuffed to bits.

good luck with your search but i think you need to lower your expectations or raise your budget, but it will be worth it at the end cause there iss a definite smugness in owning the best small boat ever built, and built they truly are

Now that is a very nice military 4.7!

As for mine I had to cancel my best offer ebay add and send it to auction as I had trouble with the reverse gear at the weekend

I have been working away the last few days and have only just seen the one on ebay. I am going to phone this evening. Could you tell me any information you may know about the fisheries 4.7 version with the puncture resistant tubes - are they expensive to have re-tubed if you needed to? For example, is the tube to hull connection the same as on standard tubes? Thanks for everyone's help. Woody

the fisheries protection version is virtually the same to look at and how it fixes to the hull, bonded, the only difference is that the hypolon is a shoe lace design jacket, inside there is a large dense foam pipe lagging that covers a inflatable small tube which you inflate in the normal method...

Are they much heavier than the standard 4.7 and would a 60HP engine be adequate?
