Pulling the lonely lass wasnt as difficult as pulling the outboard ..but then the lonely lass pulled me big time .. when she cleaned me out after I fell in love and married her ..so now I would rather pull an outboard any day and leave lonely lasses to pull themselves ..lessons learned

You're having a laugh right? Ribcraft 4.8 needs at least 60hp in my opinion.
I missed this, but no, I'm not. It's adequate. By that I mean it'll plane with a reasonable load and is enough power to get you both into and out of trouble in 6ft of sea, which is the most I've seen with that particular combination.

If you'd just said it was better with 50hp or more, I'd have agreed. It transformed the boat from when we upgraded from a Mercury 40 to a Honda 50, but it was OK to begin with. I've never tried one with 60hp or more, so don't know what benefit you really get.

Seariders have lots of fans on here. That's a Deluxe one — moulded floor and side-by-side seating. Personally, I trust Gumtree about as much as I'd trust a sleeping leopard though, so it'd be worth making sure it definitely exists.

Is it me or is the trailer bending under the weight?

It looks tidy. That'd put me off as I wouldn't want a porn star deuluxe model so it seems wrong to rip apart a sound boat...
