    Anybody else call about this? Obviously you will need to bring your own trailer. I assume the metal plate is for a fighting chair? Has anybody ever seen the HB logo used on the aft section of the skiff like this? Strange…

    Man that thing looks clean. I doubt it has much use since it has lifting davits. Probably spent much of its life on the deck of a yacht. The wiring looks a bit jacked up. Somebody other than HB has been in there. Not sure of the concerns on the sticky-seems normal.

    A friend of mine looked into this skiff quite hard.  From what he has been able to uncover it sounds like the skiff was a tender on a large yacht and was dropped from the cradle at some point and the hull was seriously damaged.  The skiff was sold as salvage, repaired and the hull was painted by a third part with the intent of reselling it.  Remember, I have not talked to the seller directly and am only relating what my friend has uncovered.  That being said I wanted to make sure to pass on the history so that you know what to look into if you are seriously interested in this skiff.

    The wiring doesn't look that far off. Just looks like it has been undone from its factory rigging at one point. The skiff does however looks like it has done a lot of sitting out in the sun with no cover on it.

    LIfeaquatic,

    Would you be able to email or call me regarding the information you have found out. I would like to find out who did the repair work and paint job and get to the bottom of this. When I purchased the boat in June the seller told me nothing about the boat being damaged, salvaged, and repaired. I cannot find any information on this online. I would really appreciate any help...The boat is in great shape and I have ran it for 10 months now and I cannot tell of any damage done to the hull any serious repair done. It has obviously been painted...
