River Exe salmon boat on eBay

What a dream. Paddling up the Exe in dawn's early light in the hope of bagging a salmon or few. Anchoring in a secluded cove for lunch in the sun. Meandering home in the evening after a day doing nothing but fishing, reading and snoozing.
The boat is spruce on oak and seems in good condition apart from the usual broken ribs, and come with a road trailer and new cover - in fact, ready to pick up and park in your drive, ready for action.
At 14ft by 6ft, the boat is not going to be a flyer but has bags of space for gear, beer and lounging about.
Bidding is already up to £510 but has not reached the reserve.
Bidding rose to £530 but the reserve was not met. The market has spoken.....
