Out of sight!! Surely not. Neatly bolted in a line on the side of the console would look the business.

looks good but you can probably do better - I paid 1400 for mine ex-mil with a mariner 75 including a trailer which sold very quickly for 400- also has an old eagle gps system-

from previous experience I agree with previous posts that repair bills quickly heamorrhage cash and a cheap boat 'up and running' can be less than the sum of the parts - particularly at this time of year

Yep... my sr4 on its trailer wasn't expensive but I still went through a lot of money kitting it out and fixing odds and bits.
180 for console
15 battery box
35 leisure Battery
20 for new battery cables
20 bilge pump
20 for a decent holesaw...with only one bit.
10 for a whole load of sheet stainless offcuts
60 in fasteners
20 for 2 tubes of sikaflex
185 GPS/Fishfinder combo
120 DSC VHF radio
40 ariel
20 wire.
20 fabric for seat cover
10 sealed cell seat foam
300ish engine... right price at the right time. (bloody good it is too!)

Add another 300 for odds and bits on top too and it makes paying 800 for a hull seem way too expensive compared with what you can buy as a complete unit.

The only plus side (and the reason I did mine the way I did ) is you know what's gone into everything and assuming you're competent,you know it's been done properly. It's extremely satisfying doing it yourself too.

The good thing about working up an old searider is they really are as tough as old boots, so you will have a boat that is good for 5 years just not very pretty.. (ALTHOUGH THEY ARE TO ME!)

Giles do you have a budget in mind.
