So did you sell this boat on ebay?
Not sure if this is aimed at me? (always best to include quotes in your replies to avoid confusion!).

Have you got a link? I sold mine back in April.

This is the Gumtree ad that Woody73 found - I'm posting it as a warning - almost guaranteed this has to be a scam and if anyone wants to try and follow up the ad and view the 'boat' for sale that might be interesting! Suspect a deposit or similar will be asked for by Western Union or similar money transfer. The Gumtree 'seller' (posting ads since August?!) has indeed taken some pics and some wording from the original eBay ad - but having known the RIB enthusiast who bought it and the fact he paid a lot of money to send a container from Ireland to the south coast etc on top of the boat price I cannot see how it turns up in East London for a too good to be true price...

I thought it sounded too good to be true and couldn't understand why it was changing hands so quickly. I tried phoning last night and the number was surprisingly discontinued. I was also surprised that a boat of that quality wasn't on the forum or b&o. I have also emailed and got a reply which a guy called Dave said that the boat would be shipped to me from Ireland.

Very odd - as always with anything that seems too good to be true - it usually is.

In your quest for a 4.7 have a look at 5.3's too - having had a 4.7 I would go for something larger next time.

I have had a reply from the guy who is meant to be selling the 4.7 and he says that nobody is at home and the phone is off the hook. He wants me to send him my details, he can poke that!!
I've just advertised a Ribcraft 585 on here and the whole idea is to downsize to a boat that my two boys can learn in as i'm now on my local lifeboat crew and can not warrant keeping the 585 though she is a cracker. Are there any other hulls that I should consider in the 4 meter bracket? Do humber do a deep v hull in this size?

Cheers

Hi Woody, sorry did not realise you were downsizing - I am sure many SR enthusiasts will echo this but in the elusive 4.7m is the tops in it's length.

I did not own mine for long but the quality and fit of the fisheries model was fantastic.
