Totally agree with the others - looks a really nice job.

With regards to resizing pictures - do a web search for GIMP. Its a freely downloadable graphics package that can do a whole bunch of other stuff as well as re-size images

Very nice Matt

mine came in at similar money, but to be hounest i started not to think about that side of it! i now have a boat that i trust and intend to keep. It seems that there has been a searider revival on ribnet..
what a great hull!
i was interested to know if your boat felt any differently with out the use of the flooded hull, i guessed when in routh seas and not on the plane the flooded hull gave the boat more stability and weight. But you seemed to say on your first outing it was admirable.
I would rather blank of my 3 holes and have it sit higher in the water!

It would be good to throw everyone togeather and compare notes however i doubt we (you) could much better our seariders.

nice one

Mine could definitely be bettered, but I have no spare time, so have to make do.
So long as she runs well, and gives no problems, I'm happy. Must get some spare water seperators as that has been the main cause of any grief I've had.

I'm tempted to change the SR to be honest, but can't decide, as it;s given a lot of fun in the last year, and changing could just bring trouble!

Your boat looks fantastic Matt.

That 35a socket-did it get any water/moisture in while you were out and where did you get it?

the socket came from Force 4 in Bristol,it has a well fitting rubber cap, and also i coated it in Quicksilver corrosion Guard, in side and setting it in the consol, with silkaflex, woked superbly last weekend, its located just behind the throttle handle , difficult to see!
