Searider now ready

Hi guys,
I've never been in forum's before, I don't know if anyone is interested, but a avon 4m deluxe searider I purchased about 13 years ago is now finished and ready to go, she has survived divorce, and a long wait for her new engine, new seat base's manufactured to a thicker spec, seats re upholstered, can't wait to get her in the water, have named her toxic Tina after the ex lol, if anyone is interested be happy to show her off in some pics
Mark

Hi Mark. I would love to see some pics. I am in Nuneaton and normally travel South West to get on the Water. Where did you get the upholstery done? All the Best Mick.

There's a lot of Searider fans on this forum.

There's also a very active group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/33064378105
