Avon 5.4m in San Diego, CA

Not mine, no affiliation, but seems like a great deal (and is probably devaluing my Avon!!!)

I brought it home and blew out the carbs with some fresh fuel and it ran like a sewing machine.
I'm not sure if that's good or bad. :-)

Just kidding, but why do I have the urge to buy this? I always wanted an SR5.4

Probably because your name isn't on the title, and you *hate* that...

this looks like a steal, id advise anyone to buy it if its not a total piece of junk. i have a 5.4 and it is an amazing boat, it weighs only 800 lbs and can handle just about any seas. you will stop well before the bopat will. i am always amazed at how my boat handles and ive had it almost 15 years now.

I've been looking at this one for a while now and just secured a place to store it. I am new to the RIB world. ANy tips on what to look for specifically on these SRs? I'm new to boating but know to look for cracks/repairs to floor, hull and transom. Anything else would be greatly appreciated.

Are you taking a look at it tomorrow? Seller said a few people are coming to check it out. Check the transom for rot, seller sent me a few pics and it looks like there are a few aftermarket bolts going through the transom.
