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.
