Scarab for sale

Beatiful boat painted as only the Americans can do, new import to the UK.
Would make an ideal winter project for a glass fibre enthusiast/proffesional as it has a couple of scratches and the odd dink from a towing incident, the upside is the trailer is superb and unmarked with a recent USA inspection certification.
Put this on your drive (ok with a tarp over it) and you get instant one upmanship over the neighbours with that little dingy/sport boat in their drive.
No need to worry about the expense of actually using it on the water because thoughtfully the vendor has removed the engines,drives and any other items that may come in usefull in the future,so no servicing costs.
You should also note that without the excess weight of the engines etc should you wish to take the boat "out" for the day it is lighter to tow, but will still create that all important impression as you pull into the carpark at the sea side town of your choice.
Personally i would recommend aquiring a nice set of alloys for the trailer from your local motor factor as it will further add to the "wow" factor in the carpark.The vendor can supply at an extra cost.

Good observation

However no points, yes it is obviously where a phantom was due to the amount of sand on the grass. Phantoms spend more time posing on the beach than anything else,its their natural habitat,sand is their friend.

The rumour mill suggests that the engines may have come "pre destroyed"

Matt,

Ive had 3 hernias repaired in one operation and not 7 days have passed since I went under the knife........ what do you think? "You got them started yet then" I could't even climb onboard the boat unaided... and I dont get dirty - I pay people to do that for me.....

Thank you Budweiser for the oh so kind post..... a little premature perhaps....... but it will give some of the folk on here (those with the intelligence of a semi moronic Sewer Rat) the chance to yet again poke fun at me.......



On and before anyone asks "Does it float?" - I dont give a SH*T

Actually Matt, Pash is being a little modest. He did manage to take one of the engines out today, we had a quick look and it really doesn't look too bad up close.

Perhaps you could get a sense of humour (or just don't read it) if it offends you.
