My old rib by Sonar

Here are a few pictures of my old rhib
A 1998 Avon adventurer.
fitted with 2 x Honda bf 50 outboard engines.

A large consul and two jockey seats fitted.
The fuel tank holding 96 ltrs of fuel ( Petrol ) is housed within the consul.
and has a front built in seat.

I use it mainly for a bit of sea fishing.

I have heard the searider mentioned before.

When I bought it I was told it was an Avon adventurer 5.6 mtr
Then Like you I was told it was a Searider.

Yes it has quite a big consul as well.

Well it was fist made for the Swansea council as a beach patrol in 1998 but seldom used.

When I bought it only a few hours on the clock.
Now i am up to 350 plus hours.

The plate on the back says Adventurer D5 .60 1998.

So now I don't know what I have!!!

It does for sure have a deep V hull and as I have said a few people have said searider.

Well there's something the forum may be able to help with.

The width is from the outside to the outside of the tubes 2.350mm
at the stern .

The tubes have a circumference 1.075mm

The tubes have rubbing strakes afixed to the main tubes and 5 air chambers.

Searider or not that is the question ?

def is not a 560, wrong data plate likely, its a Avon 6m Searider for sure, this was my 560 and its nothing lke your beast!!

OR

was it a commercial specced 560 (still looks physically longer) with a sr transom (hole in middle) the transom knees are identical to my 560 and i see you have under deck cabling. the tuber are 100% SR

was this boat a one off special??

have a look at the tubes chassis number< up the front on the inside , there will be a chassis number, like the one shown in the next pic,
They will match the Hull number or should do>

contacy Avon direct and ask them , maybe a one off special!!
