Don't under estimate the little seariders. You'll love it, great in the rough too. Do a search on here, tons of info.
At rest or going along at displacement speeds the hull is flooded giving a very stable boat. Then when you get to plaining speeds the hull empties. Some like to block off the hull to save fuel and to get on the plain quicker.

You'll see plenty on here if about it It makes them sit lower and more stable when at a standstill. Then when you gun them all the water sloshes out and they take off like a scalded cat.

4m Searider

If you go for a centre console I would be interested in the "porn seats"

Let me know when / If you may be selling them.

Pic of the boat would be good.

My searider looks like your original, except i dont have elephants trunks and it has a seat/locker across the beam in the cntre of the boat housing battery and ropes at the moment. Mine is antifowled in cream, looks better in your colour though!

If all goes well I will post picks later today... (She who must be obeyed wants to go shopping as kids only got 1 more week off school LOL)
