Sure, no problem. I'll check to make sure they're open on a Saturday morning.

Will let you know how we get on.

when i was looking for a 50 last month there were a couple of tohatsu 50's about with remote . One was on ebay . They seemed to go for sensible money and were much newer that yams etc at the same price .

Just to let you know the sale fell through. I've seen a few seariders including the one Mike has posted about on here but right on cue the car I was going to use for towing has knackered up! Just waiting to find out how much to fix and see if it will be cheaper to fit a tow bar to my van or fix the car. Clucking bell!!!!!

Plenty of good advice. We've had a deluxe 4m searider for 20 years now - cracking boat and still gets used a lot. Just about to get it re-tubed and hopefully get another twenty years out of her! Originally we had a 40 hp two stroke yamaha on it, which was great, but when the time came for a new one we went for a honda 4 stroke.

It is a bit better on fuel, and quieter obviously and the added benefit of not having to add oil that often, but these are all minimal benefits. In my view a 40 is plenty powerful enough - one up and flat out you get a fair bit of chine wobble, and the only time i have ever really felt a bit more power would be good is if we have four adults in it, when it takes a bit to get on the plane (partly as i havent plugged the flooding hull)

I would def go for power tilt - means you can run the boat up the beach without having to run astern and leave the wheel.

good luck with it
