Allways lookin

Problem is most of 'em sell for more than the 99p starting price. Just keeping an eye on the market more than anything.

I know its not very 'proprider' but I was out on a mates 19ft 5.0L Maxxum last week and it is a superb 'family' type boat. The missus would never moan at me with all them cup holders. Trouble is, after being on one of those......the stuff that I can afford, aint worth buying.

Well to get it that good, you got to split it, re-glass the bottom inside, re-fit the transom, re-spray top nd bottom then put it all back together with new seats, 'A' frame, engine, steering nd controls.

to be honest that's probably what's needed of the one in this post too so see why I 'rolled over so quick'!!
