Any idea what the fuel conector is on them? I got my last one for mine by matching one, but I've been having problems finding a replacement.

No idea what the name of them is but they are fairly common conectors.

You can unthread the connectors from the cap of the bladder if you are careful and replace them another style .... provided the thread is the same.

Looks like I've sourced my fuel bladders

Next decision is the console, do I put it where it was before (slightly offset) or bang in the middle?

1: Deck going in. 9mm marine ply, has been flo-coated on the underside. I used a product made by the Sikaflex people to bond the ply in. Can't remember what it was called now but it was something like high tensile bonding compound.

2: After the ply was in I glassed over it with two layers of 450gram CSM. I was going to go for a third layer but it seemed good and solid with just two (bear in mind Avon used 4mm ply originally). That photo shows it after we abraded it ready to take the flo-coat.

3: Flo-coat on.

4: Forgot to put the mounts in for the transom supports. Ground the flo-coat down and glassed them in, both made out of two pieces of 9mm ply. Photo shows the deck masked off ready to receive non slip coating.

5. Photo taken about half an hour ago, after I'd finished applying the non slip. Looks good, deck just about done.

Next step is to flip it over and tackle the hull and transom.

looking good... have you retained the flooding hull and floatation boxes under the floor?

Think I need to play catch up... with my one

Done away with the flooding hull.

Work started on the hull. Was covered in "something" not totally sure what. Whatever it was had a terrible finish. Took a full day with a hot air gun and a scraper to get it all off:
