V.unusual boat is the 6.5 scorpion; this is only the 3rd I've come across. No1 belonged to rouge wave and unfortunately got pinched. No 2 I've never seen but belongs to searider and now this one. He wants 15,000 for it.

Been for sale for some time I think. Personally not a fan of the split console but did have a think about an offer last night.

Never been in a 6.5 scorpion but believe it's the 7.5 hull with the transom moved. I heard they were challenging to helm in a following sea?

Scorpion started to make them again a few years back but wanted big boat money for a small boat an not sure they moved many. I guess they are too busy with super yacht tenders and 8.1 m plus boats to sorry about small boats and small margins?

That's why I miss it so much because its a very exiting ride at speed you are always on the edge if you are trying to keep your speed up. Mine spat me out twice. I'm still limping from the last time cos my Knee snapped the throttle on Exit and I had a bit stuck in my knee. , Up until that point it was very enjoyable i If you don't have to max it all the time its quite a comfortable and safe ride
