Recommendations please - New Trunks

Hi All,

My SR6 has the orginal Trunks, and one leaks. Rather than applying patches to the hole(s) can anyone suggest replacement methodologies.

I heard some-one refitting with hypalon material. Is this a Goeer

Would Avon sell genuine replacments to fit?

Open to suggestions and techniques to replacing.

Regards.

no reason why making your own from hypalon should not work.
Probably don't want the hypalon to be too thick though.
It's getting the flanges that fitt o the hull that is the trickiest bit - at least the option of making the trunks themselves exists.

Avon trunks regularly turn up on e bay complete with the big flange to bolt to the hull, but if not just make your own from an offcut. If you don't have a tube coming out of the transom then a section of next doors drain pipes will be about the right size.

I built my trunks myself, used 3" pvc for through the transom and hypalon for the outer. Easy as pie to make, works great and the cost was right.
