searider 5.4

hi Matt, theres a 90 yam in grey with newer decals on it! Boats and outboards at £1995.
see link http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/PPM030/

I spent some time looking for mine, i guess it depends on the engine hours and if it came with smart gauges but £1995 from a dealer is reasonable.

I had a 50 yam on my 4m searider, great engine once serviced and tuned right goes forever!! start's easily. Can be tempermental on trim, had intermitant probs with 50hp now ive had to change solenoid on 90hp, however 90hp is a 96 yr and 50hp was a 86 yr.

Good luck might see you out there on my new searider (when its done)
p.s i have a spare smart gauge if you end up needing one

ian

RIB Revive is absolutley brilliant. I use it. I have no relationship to the company that sells it.
You also need the 3m shining stuff which makes your tubes look factory new, but its very expensive and I use loads of it.

Just buy it you will be impressed.

Matt I got it from RIBSHOP it cost the same as the RIB revive but its in a really small bottle. It is good though. I'm off to Boat jumble next week so I'm hoping I can pick some up cheaper.

http://www.rib-shop.com/product.asp?...hFor=&PT_ID=22

Its the 250 ml tube conditioner on this site. Sorry thats the best I can do. Hope it gives you an idea.

I need to buy more. Its good but after every outing and cleaning it needs to be re applied. Then your boat looks better than new.

My problem is I am cleaning freak.

regards Nick R.
