Tecnical Specs for 1997 6.0m Sea Rider

Hello,

Can anyone suggest where I can obtain the technical specs for a 1997 6.0m searider?

I am keen to find out max loading capacity weight / people / Transom Motor Weight etc,

was their a traditional place to find a compliance plate with these details on it?

Any information would be appreciated.

I am still promising to post pics of mine, however, I am getting some more work done to it. I am going to fit an Anchor Bowsprit / Anchor device, over the bow - as I anchor most of the time for diving it is difficult to lay and haul the anchor over the bow and rubber stake.

Also I would easily like to be able to drop and retrieve the pick on my own, and this will assist.

Anyone who has done something similiar, I would like input from as well.

Regards.

I don't anchor over the bow but over the side. I have a painter(rope) attached to the bow eye about 1/2 the boat length. I chuck out as much anchor rope as I want - make a loop in it - then tie it to the painter. All the anchor load is taken by the bow eye. You just pull in from the side again using the end of the anchor rope. Easier to do than say. An old rubber mat over the tube works wonders.

I would like to use a buoy and ring for recovery but I am too scared I will get a rope around the prop!!!

Doesn't look like they've changed the pic on the website since before '96 so it should all be here:-

Guys,

Thanks for your input. I had seen the website page already, but thanks for pointing out that the specs are probally from 96. I wasn't sure if it was only a recent spec.

Whilst it suggest 90hp * 2 as max HP, which I have (97 2 stroke yams), there is no reference to the weight of the motors allowed. Are there any guidelines anyone could suggest. What could I get away with if I decide to mount current motor ranges?

Because I do dive so much, and Anchor - I am leaning towards the bowsprit. I have a marine engineer making recommendations. I am also getting a SS bar made up so I can strap Twin and single tanks to it on both sides.

The bowsprit with pivoting Anchor Device on end will house a SARCA anchor. This will assist with quick release and better retrieve of the Anchor. I should even be able to handle it on my own from the console, thus being able to drive over the SARCA for easier retrieve.

Whilst it is not mainstream recommened, I do enjoy some solo diving in the right conditions.
