searider 4.7 or 5.4

anyone with either a sr 4.7 or 5.4 fancy a change I have a very clean sr4 mercury 40 2 stroke really good condition on a good roller trailer that is great but a bit small for 2 fishing .I also have a 5.6 osprey eagle with a Yamaha 130 2 stroke tidy rib very smooth outboard goes well on a rollercoaster 3 trailer that will have a new indespension axle wheels/tyres a nice tidy outfit expensive hummingbird plotter/fish finder new vhf with plenty of room for 2/3 fishing but I get seasick on it
will trade either or both poss with cash for a nice 4.7 or 5.4 searider that has seating for 2 ie 2 jockey seats or jockey and a bench seat . I am in the northeast and can supply pics more details ect and I don't mind traveling for the right boat

RIBase
B b I note your comments sea sickness why do you believe a change in rib will cure your problem? I assume it is the flooding feature of the dr

I am fine in the little searider stood still in a bit of swell as it just seems to go up and down where as the osprey also rocks from side to side the combination of rocking side to side and going up and down at the same time is what sets me off I've never felt sick in the little searider at all

I believe the flooding hull is giving underwater ballast helping to reduce the sideways motion
