Well I am nearing the completion of the Searider 4 project, I have wanted to end up with a practical boat, no expense spared in getting the right quality equipment, I am very fussy and wanted the boat to be comfortable e.g. have courtesy lights for night embarkation with wife and kids, handholds in all the right places, safety of a good plotter for night navigation and headlamps for use at night in out of the way places, why struggle? I also wanted the boat to look 'pretty', by pretty I mean a bit like a Defender, not out of place anywhere, so acceptable as a nice tender but also very capable of getting out and doing things with extra fuel tank and good anchoring capability, so what next?
I don't know if I will sell the boat, there is no way on this earth I will recover the thousands spent on it, but it has been fun. I'm now looking at something a little bigger but still easily manageable by that I mean to launch and recover, I intend to go through the same process but this time hopefully have more scope with more room to play with. The new boat needs to be very tough, fast and capable with long range, I have been looking at the Redbays, very tempting
So any ideas welcome
