Good deal?

I'm looking around again for a project, found this on B&O... anyone know the history? Would there be any problems with restoring it?

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F130867/


What lump would you suggest putting it on the back?
Thanks

Ben

Edit: Just realised it has a 175hp engine on the back - now it starting to sound like a scam! Surely, boat+engine is worth more thatn £2750??

Ben, that's ancient!
pre 1980............ BEWARE OF ROTTEN STRUCTURES

Someone on here pointed out the ad a while ago, seem to remember it is thought to be a fairly well known race boat 'of the time'.

It wouldn't be one I'd reccomend as a venture into 'hardboating'.
They require massive 'commitment' to perform in a safe and exciting way.

Not cheap either!

Thought it was too good to be true

I am looking for something that needs some work.. I have my rib and zapcat to get on the water when I need my "adrenaline fix"

Am I right in thinking the 23' has cabin (tiny im sure, but dry storage?)

Maybe I should aim for a P21 first? or maybe a ring 20... ? What other options are there?

Jon it cant be that hard to just completely replace the whole floor and structure...can it?

No cabin.

This is a very narrow (6' overall beam, 5' chine beam) race boat. there's an area under the deck wheryou could chuck stuff, but nothing that was ever intended as a cabn, or even storage of any real use.

No dude.

I only had a new floor,
To replace structures is a nightmare and not worth it.
would really need to take deck off to replace timbers

Yeh, but they do put a lot of material in them to justify it. On a £/lb basis it's probably better value than anyone!
