Picture from last Sunday, second trip out. Very nice weather for October. Just ordered a Fladen 845 so hope to extend the season with a month. Little rough on idle rpms, might be that would need richer mix , but perfect on anything above 1400.

Here's the latest from the Wolvo searider factory.

Thanks for the screen, Nuge.

Anyone got any Avon badges for the back of the tubes?

Was the frame a rail on 40ft gin palace in a former life? If so, perhaps chopping it down to 36ft may improve the aesthetics.

Don't think aesthetics and searider are words usually associated with each other. Oxymoron I believe.

Anyway, I'll have you know that frame was built for towing broken down O****ys.
