Recently, my 2.7m Quicksilver inflatable that I use for testing my old outboards got a puncture or two. Instead of myself mucking around with a repair kit for the Quicksilver I decided to take a punt and see if I could get an ally dinghy off Gumtree.
Anyway, this 10ft tinny popped up on my radar (I believe it is a Savage Mk 1 Gull from some research, I'd like to get clarification on that if possible), the price was right so I went and got it. At first glance, there are no dings or dents on the hull, but the middle seat has been removed and the back seat had fallen out (It has since been riveted back in). There are some fibreglass patches on the inside of the boat at semi-regular intervals where someone has patched up holes; the holes went right around the boat, I think that they may have been for securing a rubber tube/ rope around the dinghy so when it was used as a tender no damage could be done to the mother vessel.
I made a video of the first run - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yxJF5dNLEk
More updates with it coming soon
