Yes, they're still made in deepest Llanelli, but the Avon Searider is now dead. It is now the "Zodiac SeaRider" (sic). Do keep up

If there is enough power a 4blade propeller will help.
Raising the engine is the answer, and the best answer is to add a power-lift so you can adjust the hight. Then on top speed you dont have to hold the steering wheel.

At least he has stopped looking at other 'adult sites', maybe more worrying that he is on this 'mostly adult' site???
