The previous owner posted on here for a while under the name R-DON I believe, do a search of his posts and see if he had any problems with it.

It's in pretty good nick if I remember correctly. Low hours, fresh water use and dry stored up until Jon bought it.

Top boat mate.

Think it used to belong to a mate of mine, was called Curly 3 then, but we called it the pimp boat.

As you say, likes a drink!

See picture to the left!

It is, as they say "if you want to play, you've got pay"

When Matt bought it it was about 10 years old I think and had 40 odd hours on it. It was like brand new. He only had it for a couple of seasons and then a split from his girlfriend forced him to sell it to, I guess, whoever you bought it off.

We did have bloody good laugh with it, good for cruising if you keep the speed down the fuel consumption is pretty good, we went to Isle of Man in it. Also pretty good for skiing behind too. Unfortunately I've lost the pictures of Elvis water skiing.

Your claim to fame is that .................. the guy who plays Steve McDonald in Corrie nearly bought it but his Mrs said "no it looks like something a pimp would own" hence we christened it the pimp boat.

Have fun.

Another little "guy who plays Steve Macdonald" story.... (Simon Grigson)....

A few years ago a mate of mine did a regular summer job as a bin man for the council in Salcombe. He's talking to one of his colleagues who tells him that one day, they find a jeep parked somewhere it shouldn't be in a council car park. The driver (Grigson) is just leaving the vehicle so they shout to him in true council worker style "you can't park that there", to which Grigson allegedly replies "Do you know who I am?".

The answer was short and sweet... "No."
