Hi Why bid then to be outbid?
That is not the best way to bid is it? You are just joining in with the idiots you mention then on ebay. :unsure:
Leave your highest bid, the max you are prepared to go to, till the last minute.:)

I'm sure someone will come along give you some advice on what you are after.:g:

Don't buy new for £500. You'll get a pile of poo.

I'll PM you some ebay numbers that look good and you'll get for under your budget. They'll last a lot longer than a new one for the same price too.

I've just paid WELL under £500 for a 3.4m zodiac and a 20hp engine. (Under £300 in fact...)

I bought one of those sounders to use on our Club dinghy on the reservoir, I will have a look to see if I still have the destructions in the shed, I stuck the transducer on a broom handle witha couple of cable ties, it worked a treat, found exactly where to stick my booby, bagged up every trip, much to the annoyance of the "purists".:yahoo:
If I find them I will scan & e-mail a copy to you ;)
