Aluminium extrusions / Stringer replacement. Newbie

Hi
I ve just purchased a old Avon s300, the boat however did not come with the aluminium stringers.

Any idea where you can get replacements or any ideas on how to make my own.

I ve had a look around the web but cant find any replacement.

The ply is 12mm thick and the gap the tthe stringers is 88mm.

I have found some diagrams of the stringers etc but would rather see if I can get replace (even if they are another make) before I bodge some together.

Atttached a pic of the boat from a brochure, if it's any help.

Thanks

Justin

Are the stringers the plastic, metal ? material that joins floorboard in between or are the lateral long pieces that holds/secures lateral wooden floorboards in place ?

Happy Boating

The stringers are aluminium and are the long lateral pieces. They made up of part alu and part wood, attached a pic of the side profile.

Cheers

Those are proprietary Avon's parts, better check with them. The newer ones you can find on the market doesn't have a wooden part attached to them.

If it's aluminum on the right and wood on the left, it looks like you could fab it up from a piece of aluminum channel (could be custom bent from sheet if needed) and a chamfered piece of lumber. I'd be tempted to go all aluminum, though.

I would like to get aluminium ones but a alu u channel on its own wont be strong enough.
I saw some suitable ones on some or other youtube vid for putting a inflatables floor in that would work and was made completely of aluminium. Gonna try avon and see what they say, if no luck with them might manufacture my own for now. cheers

No, I think you misunderstood me. I was talking about an aluminum square U channel (the right side of your extrusion) with a chamfered square rod screwed to it (to make up the left side of the extrusion in your picture.) Would be stronger than aluminum and wood, I'd think.
