Elevate your budget to £500-£600 at this time of year and you'll get something much more modern (perhaps only 2-5yrs old) that's only cheap because this is the wrong time to sell a boat. You need to look hard at Ebay every day and see what is selling for what then drop on that bargain. Often the bargains are not due to condition but just the seller is in the wrong location and selling the week no-one has any cash.
Hi People ,
I have the Zodiac In question for sale.
Hi Fenlander , What happened to your Brand New boat ?
Anyone Is welcome to come and have a look at the Zodiac , Then feel free to critisise.
It does Have an Inflatable keel , and 2 extra "Speed Tubes".
no its NOT falling apart at the seams.I would happily use it myself.
I had a fellow ribnetter (a fantastic guy , Gareth from Manchester) down last night to have a look , He said "Its not as bad as the advert makes out".
If he reads this thread I hope he posts a message.
Yes it is reasonably priced , Its Only been advertised on Here once ,as I didnt have the time or inclination to Ebay It.
