3.8 Tohatsu

I have just brought this 3.8 Tohatsu sib it has a 9.8 Tohatsu engine with a fitted Hydrofoil fin

I'm told its a SB125 model it as inflatable keel and aluminium floor its sitting on a 3 year old sbs r2/750b trailer thats like new.

I purchased it from a retired rally driver hence the car seats which i intend to take out and replace with some sort of plank seat any ideas where i can buy these from,
He did fit a custom steering wheel that was a trophy from the past as you can see from the picture but he took it out thank god

Looks a nice rig Tony. Any particular reason for wanting a seat? - they tend to get in the way and are never really in the right place for driving or weight shifting. Much better just sitting on the tube or kneeling etc.

I was thinking along the lines of fitting something like a cushion storage bag under it

I just use a large dry bag clipped to a lifeline up in the bow together with a large Pelicase, those seats 'look' useful but the SIB's a lot more flexible (in use I mean ) without them.

What kit do you carry on your SIB?
