mmmm Seariders, best boats ever made, That is a purely emotive statement and not based on any fact other than the Tingle factor they produce.

First I was a long time sea rider owner (sea rider 4,7 70 yammie) and I think you should stick as much power on them as you can.

Secondly I wouldn'/t block off the holes, i think it's a fundamental part of the design and is a real bonus in heavy weather / winds. It also has a great effect under hard acceleration (almost like turbo lag waaaheyyyy!)

Having got that out of my system then moveing on to A frames the do not consider screwing the frame to the Transom Bolt it through and make some steel plates. If you boat has a couple of steel braces running from the deck area to the transom then use these fixing points if not make up a couple of plates to secure the frame on bothe sides of the transom.

If you are looking for a good design the take a good look at the fusion frames fitted to small Scorpions. They are a clever design anf it only on the transom

The cost will be peanuts compared to buying one ready made. Just worried why others haven't done it before or are you all better off than me??
Try scafolding Noddy. You don't have to worry about bending or welding, it all just clips together. It comes ready galvanised to keep the rust at bay. You can have hours of fun with design ideas. I know some guys in Hayling Island that'll do you a good deal.

Derrr, that's the joke! Nuff said.
Ahhh, I think I've sussed you Nodders. You're not a copper at all are you? You're one of those people who pretends to be a policeman, I bet you wander around your local area wearing an ice-cream salesmans hat and a flourescent jacket wishing everyone a "Good morning" and checking their tax. Do you get a little Tranny radio out of your pocket and pretend to talk to people on it occasionally? You don't really own a Rib either, do you Noddy? Don't worry, "mums" the word.
