info on avon sr 4.0

hello, my new toy and im looking for some info, i have a 92 avon sr 4.0. didnt know they had the dash set up dureing these years, thought they were more from the 80s, I have another sr 4.0 that does not have the dash or covered bow, with the normal jocky seat, the new boat holds air, has the "SR required patches" and prior owners have closed off the flooding hull, Dashboard has been quickly repaird, seats need work if i decide to keep them, and rubstrake is comeing off but overall think its going to be fun to work on, I know it cant be the most comfortable seating but like the idea of a stock boat, my question is there are no elephant trunks on the boat, doesnt even look like there was one before. it has a drain in a small depresion below the transom for the water to drain below, Do some seariders not come with the trunks, is this boat a more leisure SR, would it be the same heavy build or r there 2 differnt built sr 4.0. my other boat has the stainless steel transom braces, this one has the molded in ones, like the room they allow me.

As far as I know Seariders did not have elephants trunks as standard. I put one in mine for scuba diving, they were a means of draining the deck very quickly. You just lower the trunk and open the throttle, and the water shoots out of the trunk.

There's various deck types on the SR4 depending on the age and who built it.The early side by side seat ones had transom stays and a slightly different deck (to hold seats and fuel tank) to the centre console models.
The later one with moulded transom support is a Deluxe.

I don't think trunks were standard on any SR4 either, but some had a drain bung into the flooding hull void instead of the transom.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

I've never seen an sr4 in that color scheme. It does look like a more leisure model, I guess like nos said its a deluxe. Reminds me of supersport styling. Good luck with the refurb.

That looks like an older Avon Supersport 4.0 . It is more of a liesure boat than the Searider and I don't believe it had the flooding hull either.

actually it is a 92 searider 4.0, has the manufaturing plate and all info, from some info vebeen looking up it is the sr delux, I can see where they covered the holes for the flooding hull, still trying to decide if i want to open them up aagin. also if anyone has this boat and can tell me the length of the steering cable they used it be greatly appreciated, I believe I need a 11' teleflex cable but wanted to be sure before i but one, also im going to have to fabricate a windshield for it, shouldnt be too bad, thanks
