Nice shiny ss transom plate and custom made a frame brackets yet to be etch primed and coated.

New console glassed into deck.

seems a fair comment your'e entitled to your own opinion.

I've always thought they were a bit like me....fugly, built like a brick shithouse, stronger than it looks and dependable when the shit hits the fan.

Sea riders are like Landies there is a lot better looking 4*4's out there but if they do it to you then they do it to you. If you wan't pretty go for a Revenger or Scrpion you won't be dispointed

sounds like an answer to a question on blind date!

i know the searider history and how good and tough they are, i think they are great but ugly!

Godd morning,
i rebuild it . It was converted to short leg when i bought it.
Now it is 20 inch like original . The outboard now is a long shaft. I closed the flooding hull.
