Could also make enq with

Fairweather marine based at Fareham town quay, I once enquired about jockey seats and they were able to sell the glass pods and seats and backrests seperately at reasonable prices, which is a cheaper option to units ready built such as outhill which can be as much as 600 quid

Sorry Tim, no photos and no way of uploading. Not very good with computers I'm afraid. Incidentally, I bought the avon from a fella upgrading to a Hyuscat. I tried to persuade him to keep the avon and sell me the hyuscat but he wouldn't have it. Git!. The searider has a flooding hull which i can run wet or dry but i'm trying to figure a way to pump it out at sea or i might just fill it with beer.

Surely the sea rider hull drains when you are up on the plane? although they did a kit to block up the holes at the back and the air holes in the bow. Colin Jones who wrote a book on ribs (Dag Pike's books are better) suggested using tennis balls ? worth a thought.

Your right pete, but this rib has the blanking plugs in with a small added drain plug in the transom blank, There is a big difference in handling, acceleration, and fuel consumption between running wet or dry, especially with 4 crew. With the way its set up, once the waters in it stays in. I suppose i could remove the plugs altogether but the boat really flies running dry. It would be nice to have the option to dump the water. Cheers Dave.

Unlikely as it may sound, the Searider hull was designed with holes in it!

The idea was to add stability at rest by letting the hull fill up with water -- as the boat starts to plane the water then drains from a couple of openings in the transom. The obvious disadvantage is the time taken to get up to speed, as inital accelleration is a bit compromised by the ton or so of water under the deck.

Perhaps not surprisingly, it never caught on in a big way. Although some people still swear by it, you'll find many Seariders with the holes in the hull closed off with the blanking kit supplied as an option by Avon (says something about the popularity of the idea!) or simply glassed over.

Good explanation from JK. The boat definitely goes better with the blanking plugs in, but on the downside it is markedly more stable at rest with the hull full of water. Especially when fishing or accomodating those strange people in black,who talk in tongues using strange words like beeceedeee, narcogas etc. and take their pleasure groping around on the seabed. Basically very nice people cos they give you money for petrol. Thankyou.
