Bin there, done that, got myself covered in orange.

Nice job. I hope you enjoyed the refit as much as the one I did a couple of years back. Being built like a brick outhouse, the Searider really does lend itself to a DIY refit. mine was fitted with a 115hp V4 Yamaha and was clocked at 46 knots. Wish I'd never sold it.
