Project Avon SR8.4

Started this project two months ago.


Bought it non working and not knowing which problems it had.

After some work and asking around. Found out the boat was under water.
Pulled the engine and drained it. Was lucky to find the engine full of diesel to protect the insides.

Engine will be rebuild. Now refurbished the hull on the outside.

Looks like a lot of work you've taken on there!

But it'll be a lot of boat when you're finished
