If You have trouble finding an engine, sell me the hull...
Hi C-NUMB!
Well what do you know ended up replacing almost all the wood on the deck / stringers If you are interested check instagram with #avonsearider you'll see some build picturers. Planning to do a thread here also.

Yamaha F225

Would it be a total overkill to put a Yamaha F225 on the transom? Weight is almost 280kg. Not a problem strength wise. But how about the balance of the boat?
