floorboards

Many of the avon floorboards were marine grade mahogany plywood.

I also have the s400, 1986, with the aluminium floor and stringers and front wood board. Just in the process of redoing the front board because I think mine came from a smaller boat. It was definitely marine grade mahogany plywood.

I can send pics and specs of it.

If anyone could send me the specs on the front board of their s400, it would really be appreciated. Also, mine didn't come with any reinforcements on the floor, just the 3 aluminium boards, one front wood board, and the fixed board inside, if there were supposed to be some, can you guys tells me how many and where?

Mine also came with a hard shell seat, can send pics of those as well. It just fits down on to the rail from stringers.

I have all of the original paperwork, manuals, brochures, etc., if you guys would like me to make copies and send them to you, let me know.

Thanks!

S400 updates

Hi all,

Just thought I'd get this thread going again. I was wondering how everyone was progressing on their Avon S400 boat projects.

I've been held up by missing parts for the floor. Looks like I'll have to make them myself as I can't find them anywhere.

Budgetary issues prevented me from getting a motor for it this year, so I haven't been working on it steadily. I still have some patch work to do. I did replace all the valves as 2 of them leaked, and one was missing the inner seal. There are 3 patches on the tubes that I'll replace next. The patches don't leak but it looks like way too much glue was used on them and I expect them to peel off eventually once the boat is moving through the water.

How's everyone else doing?

Greg

Just bought an old S4-00 & now starting work on it. Not bad for 40 on eBay. I was told all the wood was rotten & it had a large hole but the hole is an easy patch, it needs one hell of a clean & the wood isn't too bad. Unfortunately no floor so that needs to be made which I aim to do in 2 parts to retain strength. It's also one less place for my kids to trap their fingers.

hello FIN
the tube pressure is 3-3.5 psi

to fit floor first push part 1 into slot at transom then install side stringers now slide floor parts 2 and 3 into stringers angle floor up boat partially inflated the 2 bow sections angled up then fit into floor and push down, if you dont do it thsi way its an absolute pig to get floor to fit.
