That does look good. I'm not convinced it's a Searider though-the hull doesn't look deep enough at the stern.

Doesn't look like a searider to me either but could be the angle it was taken from.

Matt, no it is deffinately not a Searider.

What is it? haven't a clue but it is a very wide probably 8' 6" and about 5.5m in length so short and stubby. Has a shallow V hull with some very expensive commercial large 20-22" grade tubes probably 1500 denier, much heavier than 1100 normal tubes. The stern moulding has broken away as has the bulkhead for the cabin although I think they may be original. The other interesting thing is the tubes don't fit on a flange but are glued to the V edge of the hull. I wonder if this is an experiment by someone.

So would I buy it? no chance, it will slam like mad although it would be quite stable at rest. No chance of sleeping in the cabin either, well not given the average height of some forum members. Value probably 1k with unbraked american trailer.

Pete
