There is the odd minor mark on the hull, not sure what's caused it. Doesn't look like trailer damage (despite the fact the boat isn't properly on the trailer atm), so I suspect it's beaching marks.

None of them are deep, and there are very few of them.

I've seen Ribs in use that are in worse condition, so don't think they will need anything doing to them.

you should fill them to stave any possibility of Osmosis/delamination

What should I fill them with? Fibreglass resin?

ye if they are not deep then you could get a little bit of resin or gell coat filler and pigment and just put it on with a spreader a couple of hours later give it some with the wet and dry and you'll be well please with the results.

As your hull doesn't have an engine youe could flip it over to do the work and really give the hull a going over!

Consule to one side

Jimbo

You are right the console is positioned to one side. This is fairly standard on Seariders. Traditionally these have been workboats and safetyboats and at different times have been the RIB of choice for the RNLI, RN and CG.

The theory is that if you had a casualty you can lay them down one side of the console and have a bit more room for CPR or any other First Aid. (Should also mention at this point that hypothermic and shock victims should be laid head to stern to allow for the angle of the boat when on the plane).

Well done for your find and its an ideal choice for dinghy coaching and safety boating.
-The sponsons are lower than many RIBs making it easier to recover people and easier to come alongside and talk face to face with students.
-Due to the hollow hull that fills up with water when at rest the boat is a very comfortable platform to coach from
- No A frame makes dealing with capsized dinghies and towing windsurfers more straightforward.


Best of luck

Are you sure I know this is the effect of having the console to one side but the reason was to counter the prop toque. Des

Console offset

Des

Just been digging through some old books and web pages looking for a reference to the Searider console with no luck

You may well be right, if so I stand corrected

It's a case of six and two threes isn't it. It performs both functions well

The traditional way to counter prop torque is to offset the engine by 1- 1Ĺ inches. Anyway the ammount of torque from a 90 (its max rated) is not huge!

I would bet it was offset so a person can be laid down. The designers then decided it best to move the console to starboard as that would aid any prop torque. More coincidence than design.

Glad to hear any other thoughts on it.

Tim.

Not really, the console was originally offset to counter engine torque. I admit that it does give some space for a causality but this was not the design intention
I know Itís a picky point on my part but I think it is significant because this boat in a lot of ways was a cutting edge design which established the reputation of RIBS. And yet some apparently sensible design features have not been seen on other boats, flooding hull and offset console to name two .
