Which?

There a lot of them with varying features. Futura, Virage, Tour.S, Touring, GT... Not to mention, there were about 5-6 model revisions thanks to increases in technology between 1980-1990.

With that being said, thrustboards are pretty obsolete technology...they do hold up better though in rough seas though. There's less of a chance of a floor panel being knocked free.

But then again, who has actually taken their SIB on 2 to 3 meter swells before?

my thrust board is already out ...courtesy of the rot and prior owner. Im cleaning the old glue(s) off the prior repair areas in preparation to reattaching the floor..seems like the thrust board attachment points are pretty well defined...not sure how accurate the width needs to be...
