Cheap Blue Jackman on gumtree (question)

Hi guys
does anyone know if the blue jackman on gumtree is the same one that there were some potentially serious "issues" identified with previously?

A mate of mine wants me to go and look at it with him - his first boat- just looking to save us both some time if it is

looks like we are going for a drive - the one on gumtree, not the prettiest boat but seems to be priced reasonably well.
I am astounded by prices being paid and at what point the music will stop -

 Naah the old dodgy one was a half cab. Had a bit of corrosion if I recall, and a fugly bow rail.

The one at achievers looks like a weapon.

 That's a big boat to be sitting on a 2t trailer. My 18ft glass boat came in only just under 2t fully loaded.

There was another boat for sale (via a dealer) last week that I saw. The ad clearly stated the trailer was not suitable for the boat so owner would need to arrange seperate transport.

Quite a pain in the arse to buy a second hand boat and have to tee up extra 16-20k on a trailer.

 Good on the dealer for pointing the issue of under rated trailer out so many dealers don't which is crazy. Would have thought they have duty of care as the package would not be safe or roadworthy

 Checked out an overpriced one few weeks back with no brakes on the trailer. But price supposedly reflected it
