EBAY Bargain

Thought that you might like to see an Ebay bargain that I picked up this week unseen. Many of you may not recognise this hull, no prizes for guessing though. 21 ft, probably about 1990 ish. I'm guessing that it's a 2.4, how can you tell the difference with a 2.5 ? Motor came off a twin rig as it's got a stainless tie bar plate on the bak. Don't know any history of the boat recently, was used for ski racing with one seat facing back. Came on the galv 4 wheel trailer, wheels need a repaint.
I imagine that it should be quite quick, tabs and everything work, motor sounds great on a hose.
As always everythings for sale !
Anyone fancy a swap on the motor for an XR2 so that I can dig out the old helmet and do a bit of F200 ?

This is a 2.4 block. 2.4's were made up to about 89/90 ish. Note the shape of the block within the nice oval I went to the trouble of drawing on it.

This is a 2.5 block. 2.5's were made from 90/91 ish. Again note the shape of the side of the block within the drawn on oval compared to the above 2.4 block.

Again a 2.5 block. Note the arrowed flat squares cast into the block. These arrived on the unpainted high performance blocks in 95. I dont think they were ever on the painted non race motor blocks.

Amongst other things!

This info is useful, where as most of our membership know how "dril an ole!"

What you ribnobba lot need to post about, is usefull info like:

"How to stay aboard your boat during a routine journey."

and

"How to fix ones 'armbands' permanently to ones craft."

Some of your more experienced members could share such info as:

"How to move a 'CE' plate from one rib to another to suit your needs."

Or even:

"Checking the accuracy of your 'CAD' Predicted flotation balance."

The last being my personal fave!

The boat would have to exist to do that though!

Ah, I thought you were referring to a mythical aluminium RIB!

Didn't realise that it was necessary to produce CAD drawings when splashing an existing hull. It must be a much more difficult and skillful job that I had realised

Especially when you consider that the hull bouyancy/shape is 'dictated', (being a splash) the motor position, and subsequent weight/position is 'dictated', and the fuel tank/passenger mass, should be somewhere around the CofG, what bit did he calc with CAD?....nob

But your FAQ consists of:

How to keep your engine box lid/outboard cowling in place during a routine trip

or

How to stop your hotrodded bling-bling XR2 grenading during a routine trip

How about

How to dry out your cabin after a little bit of spray comes over the bow

and most importantly

Alternative activities if wind above F2 is forecast, or wisps of cloud are sighted over the horizon

Are familiar with the practice of moving a CE marking plate from one craft to another?

Surely CE plates are consigned to the skip along with other trivia like life jackets?
