It looks like a Ross 26 made in Poole in the late 80's based on I think a Fletcher hull.

must admit i do like it. The super charged V8 might have something to do with it

I always thought the 383ci was a chrysler engine? Had 383ci magnum in my 71 charger.

Genuine about the Dodge Ram even because he is after my mates silver one!!!

I dont doubt its genuine for 1 minute. If its still for sale in a few months when money thats due back to me is in my hand i would seriously consider this boat.

1 thing thats niggling me tho. Has he got the make correct? A Bonito 26 is a completly different boat?

That's an American Bonito - there have been threads about the UK one on here - you're right they are different but only in Nationality!

One thing that's bothering me - what HP is that and can the Duo Prop handle it?

Cant seem to find much info on this boat, on the 36, yes but nothing on the 26. I have a suspicion their not so hot judging by what i read and lack of info on this make. Shame.
