I guess being told a Searider is better built and able to take an engine bigger than designed for still smarts
"The vanguard's are absolutely diabolical, the 'DR' versions are better but are not laid up as well as say a Ribcraft, you don't see many older valiants for sale, things like the consoles/ anchor lock lid etc aren't very robust.
Fine if you want to bob around the solent and run the recommended engine size, but not really the sort of thing you bolt a Yammie V4 on thats massively outside the manufacturers specifications. If you want an overpowered rib that stick it on something thats over engineered in the first place like a searider."
