If that's 10 years old I'm a yoghurt pot. It's closer to 20 looking at it.

Provide the hull ID number (should be at the front inside of tubes, near no3 compartment valve) and it can be dated properly.

Are these "rare" ones more sought after than the 5.4 ? I'm thinking I may have one too

Well I guess that proves it.

Would I be right in thinking this is a 1990 SR5

That serial plate is on the inside centre of the transom on mine (centre of the engine mounting bolts) and the serial number is on the rear starboard side of the outer transom. There's also a number on the starboard side top of the transom

Last two digits usually denote its age
