transom plate

Here is the plate details fitted to the inner side of the transom

Engines fitted by Youngs boatyard 1998 Swansea.
We know this as there was a fitters sticker in the housing units.

The full deatils

Today i got a return email and a copy of some old sales leaflets.

I have been told .

It was made may 1998 it is a Avon adventure Searider D 5.6. Off shore.
Made for Swansea Borough Council as a dive rescue boat with a military spec.
The consul was chosen under other options.

The Stainless steel 96 ltr fuel tank with s/s label welded to it says Avon 1998 96 ltrs
was also fitted as an option.

The council sent there own spec to Avon .. As they required a beach patrol vessel for swimmers rescue.
Twin engine hull was another option.

Sorted
Its an AVON SEA RIDER as a lot of forum members suspected.
Well a little bit more history for the file.

Thanks everybody..

A D5.60 with Searider rubbing strakes.

To call it a Searider would be akin to fitting a 2 litre pinto to a Mk2 Escort 1.3L and calling it an RS2000
