Wow thats 3x what Ramco were asking for it! Hopefully potential buyers will be smart enough to do some digging before parting with cash. She looks like a really nice boat - but for 30k (inc VAT) I think there are better diesel ribs around.

Who ties up a 25k (or even an 8k) rib using the life lines?

Aside from those Ullmans being so high, it looks like they are only bolted on using the rear two fixings with the front overhanging..... May be perfectly strong enough, but looks a bit shonky.....

Zoom in and you can see a plate extending from the box that the front fixings are bolted to.

I spoke to Ronnie (ramco) who sold it and he struggled to believe me when I told him how much this bloke wants for it! He said he could not justify more than 7k !!!

Disagree entirely! It's in mint condition and has two ullmans! They alone are worth a couple of grand and the boat and engine say minimum
10k. If you auctioned it I'd bet it got double figures.

Still nowhere near what it's for sale for now though.

Completely agree, but it's pretty easy to justify more than 7k IMHO!

It was auctioned and did not sell. Don't shoot the messenger ;-). Only saying what the guy from RAMCO said and remember he sold the thing Perhaps he is privy to info you/we aren't. Either way doesn't bother me other than I didn't buy it when it was a lot cheaper :-(

LOL. V true.

A lot of boat for 8k. Prob didn't sell as it had too high a reserve I imagine.

Fully agree. I would imagine he would do so much better if he was slightly more realistic.
