Top effort Mike - seariders are truly awesome 4metre boats! She'll definitely give you many hours of fun.

400 is a right bargain - you lucky wotsit!

Nice One!

Looks like you've done well!
Let's hope nothing expensive rears it's ugly head.
Should think it'll shift a bit with a 50hp on it. Have fun.
