Might be worth googling HIN number ,i suspect thats what there suggesting it is as the final numbers relate to year ,people ussually recon that if its 05 ,it would be built in late 2005 but not gone into service till 2006,as i dont think the years run with the callendar ,more a boating season i think from memory.

Blimey, that was quick!

Looks a good boat.... but I'm not sure about your moniker... Northern Chap...Manchester. Isn't that just a little bit north of Watford?

I thought it was a state of mind not a geographical claim.

You’re in the wrong job Poly, I believe there’s a vacancy in the US with the FO, go for it[emoji1]

See, it's takes a compadre to see it like that too.

No idea how it stacks up to dating a Redbay, but if the cost is in any way proportional to the quality of the ride - go Ribtec guy!

I have placed a deposit on the other & chap has kindly given me a month....

If unsold I will still go ahead with the new one & place this with a Southern based broker 😊👍🏻

It's a very attractive boat - it looks like there's bags of space in the bow, but it looks a bit cramped in the cockpit area. What was it like to live with?
