Avon 620, ? a little help again please

Evening all,, before I go and do a search, has anyone got any experience of the Avon 620,??, with a 135 Mercury Opi

Want to put on a hydra hoist (sailboat sold), with a 2.5 ton lift, so weight should be ok ?
Like to use her for family fun, some coastal cruises, and hopefully join the Cornish crew, on there jaunts to the Scilly etc, presume the Avon, would be up to the job,,

Any comment gratefully received !!

Regards Tim

More the merrier, have a word with Roycruse, he's the SW Ribsters cruising secretary. Are you gonna bring the "Peddello on Steriods" contraption for a laugh?

Avon have a brilliant name - some of the best tubes around. A few people on here have them and seem very happy. They hold their money well and look great - should go well with a 135 2 stroke.

Oh Tim, cruising down here is fine, just please don't buy a house down here. Shaggy's a bit tetchy on that subject at the mo. I don't think that the petrol he's stockpiling is just for his boat!!

From my experience the adventurers are well turned out boats but i think they are rebadged Zodiacs or something.

I think the Hulls tend to stuff a little but theyare well made and do look OK

Dunno if the 135 is a bit butch for that hull shape but it will be fun!

if thats four of you down there ribbing would that make you the four Mouseholeketeers

Blimey this is such a coincidence. Was only thinking about buying a third home in Falmouth last week. Locals are friendly too, apparantly

they are very attractive boats! good quality! what put me off them though, was for the size of boat they seemed a little cramped inside, as they are just a stretched version of the 560! but they will handle most chop, well built, and nice to look at, you wouldnt be dissappointed! jonathan
