I recently bought a Searider SR4 this one:
cheap SR4/Yam 50
I've had a couple of trips out and from Mylor just messing about in the Fal and fishing. Ive got couple of questions. I noticed on the last trip a hissing noise coming from the bow area and thought I might of had an air leak but the the tube has stayed up ok. I think it might have been air releasing out of the hole in the bow as water came in to the flooding section from the rear? Dose this sound likely?
I'm after some oar/paddle holders to glue to tubes the one I saw on Saturday were on a 5.4 Searider one was a patch with a T of webbing for the blade end the other was just a loop for the handle end. Any one know where I could get some? I should of got some pictures.
When I get the boat up to about 30 knots it has a tendency to rock form side to side which I think is refered to a chine walking? If I back off it settles back down and I can increase speed again. Is there any thing I can do about it set up wise? The motor I've got dosen't have power trim.
I'm really enjoying the boat and learning some thing new every time I take it out
