Avon Info Needed

Hi Group I just purchase a Avon SeaRider I don't know if its a SR4.7 or a SR5.4
The hull is a 2003 with a 75 HP Yamaha. I was told it used to have a 60 HP Honda.
On land it doesn't look like a 17 ft. Smaller. I had a 1979 SR4.0 To me it looks a little bigger. I didn't get a chance to measure it.

Is their a way to tell from the serial number? I looked for the transom plate with the specs. but it was missing. Enclose photo.

Sorry to state the obvious, but why don’t you just measure it!?

Hi I didn't get a chance. The boat is not in my possession yet. Hopefully maybe next week.

Yes. I just spoke to your father about it. Jeff recommended you guys to take care of it. Your company re tube it a few years back.
Is their a product to touch up the scuff wear marks on the patches that hole the rings and lifeline?

Pretty sure that's a 4.7. Can you post a photo of the transom and the inside?

Hi Tim: That's what I think. When I saw photos of it , it look big, but when I got their I said that's a small boat, little bigger then my SR4.0 I didn't have time and forgot to measure it, was in a little rush. I wish it was a little bigger like in the photos. But after testing the boat in the water it ran nice.

I have to tow it back to my place next week. Its about an hour away.
But I have to get a trailer first.

In my area a tow 40 minutes away 31 miles the guys want $750 for a 1200 lb boat. So if I'm looking at that kind of money I'll buy a new trailer.

When I get it here I'll post photos of it. ( And Measure it )

You could rent a flatbed trailer from U haul and load the boat onto some wooden blocks / tyres / old carpet. Much cheaper!!

Hi Tim: I was thinking of it but the road (Rt.95) is concrete with asphalt patches every 20 ft. for miles. Very bumpy road. Even if I screwed the blocks down i feel hitting those bumps will loosen the blocks.
