Yes it was on craigslist, I've never seen a searider out here in hawaii. The tubes are real brittle due to the age of the boat "1983". I think it's best to replace the tubes with a brand new set from Paul Tilley or Henshaw, to limit down time of constantly repairing old tubes, also since I'm doing a full refurb.
The searider seems to have a deeper V than the hurricane. But I'm guessing the hurricane will ride better due to the length being longer and heavier. I think by adding a 30" stand off box and installing the fuel tank below deck will definitly improve the ride of the searider.
How do you like your searider?
