Avon SR 4

Just picked up this former Coast Guard Avon SR 4. It is a bit different than most but pretty cool. It had a molded in bow locker, under deck rigging, and through hull depth sounder all which were factory installed. It also does not have the normal flooding hull. Gonna refurb it a bit then it will be for sale! Click image for larger version

This was a limited produced version for a USCG contract from what I have found.

Most are a glued on tube assembly.

Looks like bolts and a lace-on flange to me. Valves appear to be on the tubes like normal.

Yeah, worth while mentioning that as if it's taped on the flange and also has a tape laced up then that will be a third attachment point for the tubes and one that I've not seen before on an SR so an extra safety feature that I bet cost

nice score. i had my eye on the same boat, i like the different look, did u go through all the same crap i did with the seller? he had it listed for 1200. i tried to go see it a couple times only to be told it was listed for the wrong price, he was now asking 2200. I was going to go see it but you had bought it just before. hope u have good luck with it, and hope u got it for a good price
