That looks like it will be great fun when you have it set up. I would say moving the fuel forwards and the console too will make a big difference. Blocking off the flooding Hull did not seem to cause MattH's seariders any problems with stability at rest.

I would get that corrosion on the engine mounts and trim tilt pump sorted before it gets much worse.

Cheers Chris.
There's abit more corrosion than you can see there. Need to get it alll sorted. Do they still sell that stuff that treats rust? Used it years ago on a 1978 VW derby and it worked. Not had call to use the stuff since.

Think I've got some in the shed anyway John. I'll dig it out and I'll bring it with me Friday.
I'll let you know once I've found it.

That's where they are meant to be. I had a heavy duty battery in the jockey seat and the hull was blocked off. That prop in the pic is not the one I had on it but it was a 19 pitch.

Set up like that, it did well over 40 knots and handled sweet.

Hi David,
sounds like that's what the problem is. When I fit this other console in I'll have to work out a way of keeping the tanks in the middle. Time to put crayon to paper and start working out dimensions.
After going out on her the other day I'm not to struck on taking the original console out as it's a real nice set up and great to stand up and use. Just can't see the radio. But I need 3 seats (more if I could) so need to move things forward anyway.
