More seariders!

More seariders for sale:

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F54288/
I think the owner is telling a few porkies here, that engine does not look like a year 2000 model, more late eighties, early nineties, difficult to tell due to lack of graphics. I also doubt that the boat is '97.

A supersport similar to mine without console AVOID In my experience worth saving up an additional 5-600 to buy a searider:

George, the above may be suitable as a project, to convert to centre console and to put your new 50 on. If its cheap enough, may well be worth doing, that little Mercury would be easy enough to sell on.

I have been pondering this flooding hull idea in seariders and what happens if you want to keep one moored. Whilst you can antifoul the exterior of the hull, what happens to the interior flooded portion?

Hey Nik

I asked this Q a while back and the answer seemed to be that because no light really gets into the flooded compartment, no scum will grow!

I'm blocking mine up this year just to see how different the boat reacts on acceraration and slow speeds.

Safeboatskin is what im going to apply to the hull and tubes, you can always stick a rag on a stick and have a go at applying this stuff to the inside of the hull........

I can answer this for I do have some experience. My first marina kept rib was a 4.7m Searider ( i still miss it by the way) and it lived in the water for about a year. It was bought new and not antifould.

We pulled it out every month and pressure washed it and there was some growth but mostly alsae and not crustyasians but these did form inside the rear vent of the flooding chamber but you could knock these out with the preesure washer or your hand.

I don't like blocking up the flooding chamber but I think it's essential if you re going to waterberth your searideras it does make it sit a lot lowere in the water and therefore liable to flooding over the transom!

Hi Alex
I very nearly went to see the first boat you mention - I think in fact it's a late eighties, and vendor couldn't find a date plate on the engine... Didn't fancy a 5 hour drive to find out all not as it should be...

I would'nt bother going to see that first one I mentioned, that is a Yamaha with the blue and white casing which I am sure is late 80's. Secondly, I am almost 100 percent sure as you say that the boat is late '80s as well. Its not worth bothering about for that price, especially when there are so many for sale at the moment. If he reckons that is late nineties he is telling a big porky or he clearly doesn't know what hes talking about -not the kind of person you want to buy a boat from.
