Oh no.... not another Searider refurb

4 Mtr Searider hull that's been sitting in my yard for who knows how long so thought I'd get it on the go.
A small repair on the back end where it had seen some extreme beach action.

I've done the hull in a Military Grey colour which should match up nicely with a black tube.
