SR4 on Fleabay

Anyone know anything about this boat? I'm assuming it's not a ribnetter or it'd be in the for sale section, but has anyone any opinions on it. It looks pretty tidy from here...

Is an SR4 but the tubes were painted, it was advertised on here recently but the engine is not fuel injected!

It's in the for sale section I just need to update the price, I lost interest in selling it over the last of the summer really.

Maybe not but why make it look like a rescue boat if it's not? I bought it already with the painted tubes and hull, It does make a refreshing change of orange on grey.

I'm no engine expert but those three lumps of metal on the right of this pic look suspiciously like carbs. You can't really have a fuel injected engine with a choke, I think he's getting muddled with direct injection - I wish I'd know they're direct injection as I'd never have sold my Yam 50 2 stroke

Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't see the mistake. It's oil injection.

Thanks, Cleaning it every use paid off then! Manual trim/tilt but being such a light engine It's never really caused a problem.

Not sure but you can get transom mounts that the whole engine bolts to and then then does you PTT.
