Would an SR event embracing all SRs, similar to the ones organised by our friends in the Netherlands, be worth considering rather than purely an SR4 reunion?

Hope I'm not talking out of turn but personally I'd jump at an opportunity to meet up in Brittany/Normandy with fellow SR enthusiasts.

Yep, think it's only fair to open it up to those other inferior models of seariders too....:-)

I'll look at this again in November but does sound like a good idea....

As many on here will know, there is a wealth of stunning cruising area's around St Malo, Granville, Chaussey istands etc....

Chris,

table of engine offset mounting to starboard.

Many swear on this effect, works against the torque of the
prop for a nice straight ride.

I think there must be a reason that someone worked this
table out.

Why it shouldīnt be right?

In Germany all the Fletcher freaks (also deep V hull construction boats) mount their outboards offset for a better more even ride.
Itīs their holy grail of mounting the engine perfect.

The tubes of the seariders get lifted complete out of the water, when
going faster, so the ride just happens on the V hull. (Like Fletcher boats)

Debates.......

Console / jockey seats / anchor locker & tubes done

well, what can I say, can't thank Mike Whitham of Whitham Glassfibre enough for the job he has done supplying and fitting the console / jockey seats and anchor locker, Mike also sorted the hull out for me and has made a really good job of it, can't recommend him enough if you are looking for someone to refurb your hull for you, he's a star

the tubes were made at SIT Ltd, another great place, again I can't thank them enough for their efforts, especially Chris Chadwick for sorting it for me, again can't recommend them enough for either tube repairs or just complete replacements

I'll post a few pics, but here's a little taster so you get the idea
