Trying to work that out into litres. Is about 4.5 litres per gallon isn't it? Wish I'd took notice of the teacher in stead of girls when I was at school!

Wanted to come back to the thread as today I went out for the first time. Jesus no one told me they where so much fun!! That has to be the best and most involving boating I have ever done. You have to give allot more attention to jockey this size rather than boats of around 12m, and that makes it so much more! I'm hooked! As someone said in this thread,

And fecking right he was.

Launching over the side of the slip at Knott end (Thanks to Dave at Wavelength for this) on my own was stressing me out until I tried it, went with out a problem. Had a play in the river to see what these Rib's are like and had a grin from ear to ear so decided to venture out. There was no wind but the sea seemed to have not noticed and the swells came very big a few times. First one I hit ended up making the inside of my drysuit smell of last nights takeaway and the realization that I was in a 4m open boat suddenly seemed like a bad idea. But then she showed me how she could cope so that thought went straight out of the window These craft are great!!
I need to adjust the stiffness of the throttle lever though as it's a liitle loose. I hit a small wave which made me put my weigh on the throttle sending me full belt up a huge following swell. All I heard was the engine rev like mad as it left the water. The landing was interesting and it's a good job I don't want anymore kids

Can ya tell I liked it. 4m seariders love it!!! Big thanks everyone

Cheers mate.

I doubt if there will be much kid making action going on for a while when this is read!.

Hopefully your Searider hasn't had the flooding hull blocked up. this will be realhelp regarding stability when takin photo's be careful with your love of Seariders that's what started me off!
