4m searider question

hi everyone, just got myself an old 4m searider which i'm in the process of doing up so i thought i'd better join this fine forum so that i can officially be one of the boys!!! i've been reading about flooding hulls etc but can't see any sign of any hole or even filled in hole in the transom, did avon ever make any like this or has somebody done a really good job on it. oh, while i'm here, anyone know where to get a cheap double centre console? and does anybody want the windscreen and seats that i've just taken out?. cheers

It could just be a really good job

If I had an original 'porno' 4 seater with a windscreen I would keep it original post some pics if you can.

Get some pics up, they would have been a largeish hole in the transom and two vent holes in the bow.

Welcome to the forum.

If you find a Dutch porn movie from the late 70's, maybe early 80's you should see a set of the SR4 porn seats somewhere in it.

Welcome to Ribnet!

Lots on here who if they don't have one now have fond memories of owning one..... (when can we get a "waynes world dream sequence" smiley?)

Jockeys pop up all the time on the "bits & pieces" section.

I'm desperate for a window screen mines all fractured and I think I'm the only person on here who loves the original set up! How much do you want for it, and where abouts are you?
