someone told me to hit on the hull where it sat on the trailer but i can't mind who....i spent a long time inspecting that and can't mind who gave me the tip.
Anyways, as i said above to OP....if you want to go offshore this isn't the rib for you. I sail mostly on the west coast of scotland and it has been great.
Dubrus - Good to hear from you. Glad your Avon adventure worked out for you.
The cracks on mine were down either side of the hull. At the time I just thought it may have been a badly set up trailer.
Unfortunately, I just happened upon one of the ones with a duff hull.
Partly my own fault for not checking it closer. Sticking your head under the trailer wasn`t enough. These were very small cracks as thin as a human hair in a spiders web type pattern. They could only be seen upon very close inspection.
The give away was when you pushed the hull in between the chines it flexed - Not good.
That boat affected me. When I see an Avon Adventure on it`s trailer I have to get under and give the hull a push. Luckily, I`ve not been caught in the act yet!
Kerny - Well directed. The search facility doesn`t work on my I phone - neither does the "quote" facility. Is this normal? Works fine on my laptop.
