My new boat - Searider 4.7

It's that happy day when you buy your first boat feeling! Just got back with my 4.7m Searider.

This is also a big thanks to Matt H. Genuinely one of the nicest guys I have ever met - when I posted that I was looking for a SR he PM'd with a well below market value offer to help out and spent an afternoon taking me out on the water and explaining every aspect of the SR and how it all worked. Having seen Matt's videos and been around just Bristol dock for starters it may be a few years experience before I follow him to the open sea though...!

The boat is a cracker, Matt posted it here:

And some pics I took today:

Cheers chaps - got to do my PB2 but still hoping to get some boating in this season.

Trailered home lovely Matt but my pesky garage door is 1" too low so had to take the A frame out.

Kids loved the boat just sitting in the garage - even my wife smiled!

Looks pretty funky - and a rarity too. I think they only made about half a dozen of that model with the military spec, didn't they?

Hope you have a great time in it. I'm sure you will
