Rib wanted, Kintyre

Hi folks, looking for a rib and can pay up to about five grand.

It needs to be in, or willing to deliver to, Kintyre.

Not too stuck on spec but it does have to be seaworthy and at least 5 metres long. Would also consider a cat rib.

I know I have not given much to go on but it's just for pootling about, if a seven meter twin Honda turned up for five/six grand I would have it, if a 25hp old thing turned up for one and half grand I would have that.

You may get a shallow V hull with an older engine on. Look for valiant or Humber assaults. Possible. Not easy. It's going to get more achievable sub 5m though.

I know I will be lucky to get anything fancy for that money.

I have been trying to message this person Avon 5.4m Rib Honda BF75 4 Stroke in Kilmelford, Argyll and Bute | Boats, Kayaks & Jet Skis for Sale | Gumtree.com but keep getting no reply so is probably a scam

Sorry damn predictive text also on road. Ones are relating to the rib where does he use it and what for, fuel usage can you see it running and trial run any damage. Asteroid should have read you have a friend who is local that can come and do all the test for you and take the rib for a spin. Service details and where he got it done. It's just to safeguard you from spammers remember no cheques cash on collection if its good.
