Krazykev,

Could you please post some photos of the stringers for the floor of your S400? I have the opposite problem you have, I've got the floor boards, but no stringers. If I could see what they look like I'll be able to find a substitute. Thanks!

This is the only photo I can find of one of the stringers from my old Avon S250 - I imagine those for the S400 are about the same.

Cheers

Chris

Here you go. I took these pics yesterday. In case you need the length, there are 2 of these at 169cm long.

pics of my S4-00 as I bought it

Here are some pics I took of my S4-00 as I bought it.

I think the first job is a good cleaning with some cheap washing up sponges and plently of Acetone as I managed to find some of the original red after a 5 minute clean in one area.
All the valves are in great condition with no leakage & the only repair required is about an inch long on the right hand side front section. I'm impressed by this as I was told it had a massive hole in it which I couldn't miss. I was working on the basis that if the boat was dead I would have plenty of patch material but it's not too bad.
Strangely enough when I got it I couldn't believe the weight, until I found out how much water was in the keel due to it being left outside with the valve open.

Realistically, it could do with a brand new transom but as it's not totally gone I might dry it, drill into it & fill it with resin. This depends on time available & the mood I'm in at the time.

Does anyone fancy measuring their floorboards & taking some pictures as it will save me a lot of work making templates?

When I get it clean, sometime during spring, I'll post some more pictures.

Are you still working on this project or is this post no longer active? I have same boat and trying to clean mine up. I don't have any seat, or wind screen on mine, long lost before me, although I have a rough looking floor. I can provide pics and measurements if you require them still ?

Hi there

Yes I do need the measurements. I bought a floor on EBay recently but it was for an S250. As I have one of those & it was only 20 I wasn't too bothered.
If you could have a measure up & post on here it would be appreciated.

I've scoured the internet every now & then but floor measurements are hard to find.
