A Complete Novice and a Ring 21
Hi there from a complete novice and newbie, when it comes to boats. I am after some guidance / information please with regard to a possible purchase of a Ring 21.
As I have stated, I know absolutely nothing about boats, but thought that I would get involved to see what the fuss is all about, and itís looks like good fun.
There is a Ring 21 for sale locally to me Ė I am going to take a look at it next week, along with a mate who has a mate who knows a bit about boats, hopefully.
I suppose that my main 2 questions are:-
1. Is the Ring 21 a suitable boat for a novice to handle / learn on?
2. What questions should I be asking the current owner about the boat. I know very little bit about it at the moment and that is that it has a 1998 year Mercury engine (not sure what capacity). I suppose a lot depends upon the engine condition / age / hours run.
The boat is up for around 4K, which is about my budget, but I can not seem to find many other Ring 21 boats around for sale, on the internet, to be able compare prices.
Any help, guidance, or opinions would be gratefully received and if you are local to Poole, there might be a beer or two in it for you!
