Putting a Honda BF50 4 stroke on the back of my SR4 as soon as biffer has worked his magic on the gelcoat, can't wait to try it with the new engine

As I am buying new the Honda BF50 seems to be the obvious choice; max recommended HP for the SR4 and it's one of the lightest 50hp 4 strokes around.

And as the tubes are in great condition and the hull will be immaculate once biffer has sorted some gelcoat scratches out it will be a very tidy SR4.

Sounds great!!
Does you hull have the metal bars inside as the knees that go between the transom and the hull?
Or is it the fiberglass type like mine were?

Looking for somewhere flat enough to glue 3 chunks of 3mish long this stuff together to make a tent for the bow of the Ballistic.

(Not that colour though Grey.

Mine is the rescue with the transom bars, yours will have been the deluxe with the GRP knees.

Planning on adding some home made fishing rod / flag pole holders.

Fixing the VHF and aerial in rather than relying on the hand hold and getting the flare boxes made and added for the extra storage.
