Thanks mate.

Only just seen that this thread is five years old.

We are going to use it for saftey boating, escourting other vessels up and down the tidal river thames and a bit of patroling.

Plus jolly's on the river in the summertime. I hope.

Upstream after Wandsworth bridge we have got to follow an 8 knot speed limit, so aint gonna be speeding along. Although it would be nice to do around 12 knots downstream to tower bridge.

Riverkeeper, I suspect you in fact have exactly the same Searider, not just model. When the sailing club I was refitting it for decided to pull the plug on funding, it sat in a sort of transition period while we worked out what to do with it - Gravesend Sea Cadets looked at it, and eventually Ian Foreman (who is part of London MVS) took it over.

I hope it all goes well for you - I know Ian quite well, and if you are London MVS you may even have met me on the Radio courses I did for you a while ago.

It'll be fine with a 50 on then

Thanks Jimbo,

Cor, how about that then, the same searider.

well the good news is that we have antifouled it last week, as it will be nine months a year on centre moorings.

We are fitting an A frame to the rib in the next couple of weeks, fixing on the nav lights and just using a hand held V.H.F radio for now..

Two fuel tanks in the stern and we should be fixing the steering cables and launching it around april 1st.

You are welcome to come to the launching party if you like, we will be doing spare ribs with barbeque sauce and other foods.

I know Ian, but may not have met you yet as i have only been with London M.V.S for 5 months.

We are well pleased with the rib and shall look after her. I had a feeling that it might of been the same rib, as the jockey seat has been changed to a flat type and seeing the damage on the origional one in the pictures,

but then thought, naw, what are the chances!

Well it's a small boating world.

Thanks for the information.

Cheers, Alex.

Thanks Nos4r2,

Any guesses as to what she'll do with a 50 hp fourstroke with three people and a couple of fuel tanks on it?

I'd like to get a ninety for it but a 50 is all we have. Still it will save the pennys. Shame we cant get tax relief on our fuel.

Poor volunteers, us.
