    Hi,
    Could anyone tell me anything about this 18' Fiberglass boat I've bought from a friend, as he needed to clear his garden.
    I think it was used for water skiing, it has a mariner 140 on the back and looks 70's 80's James Bond style.
    Anyway I've moved it in my local boatyard and will restore it.
    I'd really like to know what it is?

    Many thanks Mark

    I'll fire up the engine next week. That's my only concern.
    Below the water line the hull is quite thick. Ply deck, which I,ll paint.
    Mainly fibre glass.

    Welcome to the forum.

    What does the title, registration and HIN say?

    The "tower of power" would be a lot better proposition if made with the later alloy they used, rather than the former, which I'm sure I could hear fizzing in salt water. Changed about 20 years ago i think.
