Zodiac FC470 Build

Now I should be doing other things today but couldn't resist getting my new to me FC470 out and giving her a quick wipe down.

Everything appears to be there except for the 2 bolts and washers that hold in the roll up aluminium floor section at the bow.

Does anyone know what size and thread they should be? Probably need to get A4 Stainless?

I thought I would do a build thread as I haven't done one for a while, but it looks like most of the work will be the trailer, but we'll see what happens

For the two bolts that hold down the roll-up floor in the front - mine uses stainless bolts with an eyelet on top and wide flange at the base. Not sure on the size or thread pitch.

Thanks, I think it's an M8. Thanks for the info on the eyelet, I didn't think about that. I think the thread length can be no more then 30mm.

The washers must be an m8 x 25mm

Thanks again for the info, but I seam to only be able to find a 13mm long m8 eye bolt:



L = needs to be 28mm (I could get away with 30mm if I used a washer)

D = 8mm

Looking at it the other way, what about a bolt going into an eye acting as a nut?

Force 4 Stainless Steel Eye Nut - M8 - Only 3.55 - Force 4 Chandlery

I know what you mean but I couldn't do it as the nut is captivated in the support that the floor lays on top of and the bolt is inserted through the floor and into the threaded floor support
