Quite happy to bring my tent/caravan to wherever for a weekend and supply my labour in return for the knowledge I will gain from more experienced RIB'ers.

Great news! Tonight I have received the pics of the two Searider's and and I have made the choice on behalf of all of us.

I have chosen the most original one of the two so that it can be restored to the best original condition.

I am not allowed to post the pics as it does give it's location away, so I'll be posting pics as soon as it's delivered which will hopefully be this sunday.

When I get it we can make a list of the work required and make a plan from there.

Exciting stuff this and the sky's the limit so time to pull out all the stops with this one and aim high

I have thanked him so much and he said:

"No need to thank me, I'm glad to be part of this and am very excited at what can be done".

What a Legend

Agreed. Legend. But what is the end aim? 70's pornstar original, or a real Ribnet jockey special ready for taking on the waves? Must be the latter. Surely we can blag a suspension seat from someone for the cause. Or a broken one that some genius like biffer can fix?!

I think it's one of the later ones, probably 1998-2001 ish ???

It has a grey hull, twin trunks, fisheries console, big old a-frame and all that....

As I say, we need to aim high with this one
