17' boat

Looks quite a tidy cheap rig, take a special look at the front seats look like they came out of a phantom 20

Lower hull does but top looks like Shakespeare,
Maybe paint screen area same as the rest of the top deck may look better??

it is much cheapness though.
Best go see it as its down souf near you, ask for demo or compression check then run on the muffs from cold!
That way you get to check out the hull.

Wrong again Cap'n.....

It is in the 'style' of a Ring 16 series A circa 1977 . It might be genuine but

I cannot vouch for its pedigree as I do not know if I built it !

The transom looks thinner than I ever put in a hull...... obviously amateurish trim, and I dont remember building one in those colours. Respray ?

Lets have some provenance please, who had it, where did it come from, who raced it . Most were built for racing and a few went to the Stone club Hunstanton, some went into 3B offshore, ( Thats 1.3 to you newer fellers ) !!

Considering your youth and apparent innocence in these worldly matters, I feel that we should be lenient with you. This time.....

However if your studies fail to improve your general powerboating knowledge we may feel that a remedial period in the 'Ribnobba Remove' will befall you .

So think carefully before any ill considered replies in this forum are published.
