When did raiders start being made in poland.
There is a UK Raider18 Wheelhose on Boats & Outboards. 1998 hull, 1998 90hp Yamaha autolube 2 stroke, later year Honda 5hp 4 stroke aux, full electronics & roller coaster trailer for £7950 ono.Think the raider might be out window as there are like rocking horse poo to find a uk build.
If I"m reading the above right you"re asking are any of the Raiders for sale made in the Uk & not any 4 stroke motors made in the UK ?Thank for that headlight but really want a 4 sroke motor are there any made in the uk if not it's a warrior or a reiver.
I can only speak for Raider 18 Wheelhouse models as that is what myself & some of my friends have although I would imagine 18 Fisherman models figures would be identical & cuddy models very similar.While on the subject of raiders - can anyone give me some performance guidelines like top end speed with the max 140hp or any other configurations?
Those figures agree with mine. A couple of mph less & about .8 of a litre per mile with a 90 is close enough given different sea conditions & other variables. I believe 18 cuddy"s give similar figures with an 80hp as they are a bit lighter & more aerodynamic than the Wheelhouse/Fisherman.my wheelhouse with a 90 optimax topped out at 36 mph and cruised in the low to mid 20s would give about 28 to 30 miles to a brim full nominal 25 litre tank
I don"t know how you would fair insurance wise with a 150HP fitted in the event of a claim as the hull is rated to 140HP. Perhaps there is a way round it, I don"t know. I do know though that fitting an engine within the manufacturers rating is down to the owner although the insurance company will accept your proposal & money irrespective what you have fitted.Thanks guys, I went out for a day trip in a raider kitted with a 150 opti about 5 years ago & the experience still lives with me!
The boat was very fast & seemed very competent through the snotty conditions - to be truthful I had a bad back for a week after but on reflection I think the boat was far more capable than many others I have experienced!
I also remember that particular boat had a 15hp auxiliary.
