Avon Searider 4m

how much water does the flooding keel of the searider take on board? does this come out when put on a trailer?

No idea exact qty but the flooding hull takes a fair bit of water. I believe there are a couple of air tanks in the space as well (actually you can see them through the drain hole at the stern).

No problems with it on the trailer - as soon as the large hole is clear of the water it empties in seconds.

To clarify, the water comes out as soon as the boat gets underway in the water. ie it is only intended to be flooded at rest for stability and empty while moving.

If you intend to use the boat for diving (bit tight for one let alone two with all the gear) then leave the hull open,if your using the boat for skiing, blank off the big hole at the back and the two at the front.

you don't need to be lifting all that water while struggling to get on the plane along with a skier.
