Missing some as regards the flooding hull?

Searider usually have a big hole in the stern and two little "nostrils" in the bow, this floods the hull when at rest making the boat more stable.
When you open the throttle the hull drains.

Try it as-is first. If you find it's too unstable at rest (I doubt it will be) then it's worth thinking about opening it up again.


If you type 'Sr4' into the search facility on here you'll come up with a lot of info.
