I had a small 4m sib in Cape town many moons ago, am thinking about a searider for a bit of fishing etc off Cornwall coast but have a query about the flooding hull, would this stop a 40hp from accelerating sufficiently for waterski.
Any comments appreciated.

Probably best to get a bung made to temporarily blank off the flooding hull for when your waterskiing unless you like long slow pull outs

I've just bought a 4m Searider. It came with a fitting adapted from a soil pipe adaptor to close off the transom hole (basically a screw on cap on a flange), and two filed-down dinghy bungs to close the vents in the bow. Easy mod to do.
