Anyone know anything about Selacraft raiders?

Hi all, Just got a new rib, a selacraft raider 4.3m, was wondering if anyone knew much about them, think they went out of buisness in the early nineties. Anyone with opinions on the hull design/sea keeping abilities. I bought it as it looks really beamy and has a good deep V hull as opposed to my old rib that had a shallow V and bench seats which really didnt suit the west coast of Scotland seas!
Thanks for any input.

selacraft rib

Yep, I've got one around 4.5 mts.I put a 90 HP Merc on it and it goes very very well. The hull design,in my opinion is good. Its stable when stopped, planes quick, is stable at speed and good in a slam. Love it and its a good dive boat if rather smaller than I would want but for four divers excellent.
