Sounds like I should stick with a rigid floor as I keep it on a trailer anyway.
Seen a used Honwave 4m for 550 but only 899 new?

The wooden floor no longer sits tightly between the tube and the floor - a 2" gap has appeared. Can PVC stretch?

So I think it might be best to just replace it, its only a cheap Chinese model anyway but its been perfect until now. I use it on the Med for a few weeks a year for water skiing and stuff, I also want to start using it for fishing. Whats my best bet for a replacement? I don't want to spend more than about 800

Sorry to here that mate. Let me know if your going to get rid of the old one, il take it from you. Looking for something bigger than my 3.3m

Found something, I'm picking it up tomorrow! Decided not to splash out until I have the space for a rib, so it's just another shanghai special but it gets me on the water this summer ( if it ever stop raining)

Just rec'd my 12.5' SeaMax, did all the electrical wiring during the winter. At this point, It looks like I'll mount the elect panel and sonar above and on the battery box. Hope to post a pic when it's done before my holiday in July. Having seen the incredibly high prices of electric downriggers, I also purchased a low-cost manual and converted it to electric, about 65.00 Canadian.
