Quicksilver 340 Airdeck Help Please

Hi All,

I have recently bought a used Quicksilver 340 Airdeck.

I have discovered under the air floor there should be a "Thrust Board" unfortunatly it is missing Arghh !.

Does Anyone owns a 340 who could accuratly measure their one for me so I can make a new one over the weekend ? Please Please

I am not sure if its a true rectangle shape or not , One side may be longer than the other ?

Please help Thankyou !!

It's a trapezoid as you suspected. I have the 2.7m so can't give you precise dimensions. However, it sits loosely in the hoops of the airdeck and should fit snuggly under the inflated tubes where they meet the bottom "hull" skin seam. The edges are chamfered, sanded and painted/varnished to avoid fraying the tubes. The keel tube fits below this thrust board and pushes up against it with some force. I can't see the boat working well without it while planing.

The material is light ply - without checking I'd say 10mm?

HTH

Just a thought - inflate the SIB with the floor upside down. Mark the strap locations on the tubes in tape, remove the deck and make a template from heavy cardboard.
