Yes I've seen both if those and made contact with the Swansea one. Just wanted to see if there are any more in case they don't come to anything.
I'm constantly watching FB marketplace, Gumtree and ebay
There's a couple more around and I would quite enjoy repairing and upgrading a rib as I'm quite handy, but am slightly apprehensive as I'm a newcomer and maybe not too familiar with common issues.
Maybe I'm overthinking it but as it's my first boat I didn't want anything too major to deal with.
The Swansea rib is a 1990 Avon and my overthinking was concerned that is quite old?
The main thing that usually puts me off is the age and state of the outboards. Some look well used and a bit scruffy but I suppose like with anything, if its looked after and maintained there's no reason o couldn't have a lot of years out of them
