thanks for your comments above, strangly enoth i also commented on how quick your 4m was, i use to have one with a 50yam which managed 34knts maxed out 1 up, you were keeping up with the 3 of us at 39knts..

I was also mighty impressed with your boat that day. Seems like a 5.4 m Searider with a 90 on the back is a pretty good boat.
