hull extension

Does someone has experience with a hull extension? I am thinking about
a 20 centimeter extension at the transom with a center cutout for the outboard. Theoretical it must have more stability and should be faster,.

It may cause quite alot of problems when reversing, and I think you'd find the seariders hull to be good enough as it is.

I would suggest to add a 10" bracket, made by Stainless Marine-USA for instance.
They have other lengths too, shorter and longer.
Works perfectly, and nothing to change to your present transom

Hi there .
Thanks for the info. To the Searider owners. Is it better to close the flooding hull ,or is it a must for this RIB?

I prefer it blocked on the 5.4-unless you're going to do a lot of sitting around being a safety boat. It's a bit more stable at rest then.

Hi NOS, is your hull closed?
I ride with it mostly in the mediterran sea and the adria. So the water isn`t rough, like in the nort sea.
Is it so unstable with the hull closed ?
While i am makong a new transom , it would be a clean job to close it.
And also a closed volume 0f 350 litres of air. Even there would be space to
have 2 build in tanks in the front.

I have no experience with this hull, so i prefere the advice from Searider owners more than from this kind of teachers in the net.
