See my reply re hogging strips. If it's got them it's a 250.

Hogging strips have an inverted T cross-section and usually have grommets for safety lines. As seen here:


Yours looks a lot like my S100, but there are some slight differences with attachments, valve location, and transom shape.

The S100 is rated to 15hp.

Also interesting is that I note you mentioned yours doesn't have an inflatable keel and wonder if it's missing.
Certainly my S100 has a keel but the original floor would have had a hole in the front "triangular" board to allow access to the keel valve which your board obviously doesn't have.

I've just measured the "quick and dirty" floor that someone had made for my S100 and the equivalent three boards measure 86cm x 153cm. Plus the triangular board.
They are noticeably too loose in my boat so I reckon the three should be nearer 88cm x 160.

Considering the differences in transom, the lack of an access hole for a keel valve, and also that yours has two less attachments for the bow dodger than mine has, I'm now wondering if yours is something else, slightly smaller than an S100?

I'm certainly not an expert on old Avon boats though.
The S100 is 3.2m. If there was something which came in 3 or 3.1m that could easily account for your floor being at least 10cm shorter than mine.

It'd be interesting to hear from someone else with an original S100 or S250 floor for comparison.

I've done a bit more digging...
I reckon you have an S60 there.

The one in these photos is slightly newer (note the valves) but the lack of a keel, the fittings, and the transom shape all fit with yours.

It's a shame that data plate doesn't list length and beam. A private listing somewhere else quotes the length as 8' 6", or 2.6m

To test my suspicion a quick bit of maths says that 2.6m is 81.25% of 3.2m.
Taking that percentage and scaling up from your measured floor would give:
71cm scales to 87.4cm
143cm scales to 176cm.

Allowing for the likelyhood that it's not a direct scale in all dimensions I reckon those calculations are close enough to my S100 floor estimate to assume that your boat is quite probably 2.6m.

boat model

hi thanks for the info, i remember seeing an s250 where the front triangular bit of wood is glued into the boat into the floor gusset where it meets the tubes, mine had the remnants of the glue on it. i would be surprised at an s60 just based on floor thickness and transom thickness, mine went really well with a 12.9hp on it. In terms of keel i would have thought that it should of had one however when i tried to make a small one with a diameter of 2 inches from pipe lagging foam there just doesn't seem to be enough room under the wooden floor against the fabric, i.e the fabric is already taught tight .
would like to say a big thanks to everyone who has helped me on here.
