The Good, The Bad, The Ugly


OK. One Avon SR6 is mine, I bought it, and drove it back trailered the 2100 odd kms.

OK how to make a grown man "nearly" cry. - Caught the tube on a sign at a service station, blowing a chamber. Worse, only a couple of hundred Km's from home.

Luckily I painted insurance on it, and was already working out the worst, however, the good men here in my home town who work on all the avons "Surf Life Saving" said they would have it repaired in a couple of days. They have already layed the inner tube.

So, My first patch job, and I have not even got it seriously wet yet.

I am hoping it works. The only other option is for the boat to go on another road journey of some 1600kms to a Tube Builider.

I will be seeking advise in the respective forums on the electrics soon.

I have mixed emotions - however, by the end, one way or another, I am going to have an SR6, which I believe are as rare as in OZ.

The Avon dealers over here told me I got a steal, so I trust from your comments this appears to be the case.

I will get pics up once I have the boat at home.

A Landrover County 110 and an SR6 and no wife (probally because of the landy), what more could a man want parked at his home.

Funnily enough I am not even a pom.

Best Regards,

Congrats on a fine boat.

Depending on how bad the blow/tear is it is not too difficult to do yourself. Lots of advice on here if you do a search. I have done one about 4 inches (10cm) myself.

I trust you can still catch a kangaroo!

Fantastic deal you got and you are now the owner of the best 6.o mtr boat in all de wurld and particularly your Part of Oz.

Re the toob Hypalon is easy to fix. You could diisguise the repair by gluing two nameplates from hypalon on the sides of the boat
