It strikes me that SR4 could be closer than we think, you seem very keen to resurrect him....................

I just thought he was the ideal guy to advise on whats inside the sinking floor as he has also just done an old searider 4 up including invasive work into the sinking floor.

Can you send him a pm please Dave

Cheers
Pete

Someone i know in Germany has done that too, he reinforced deck & transom but he closed the Flooding Hull - as the boat will be a Cover Boat for Rowing clubs etc. i want to retain the Flooding Hull.

I don't know what budget you've set yourself for this little project, but to gauge a comparison of UK prices on a good SR4, keep an eye on this:

rib avon 4m 40hp & trailer | eBay

May be worth towing it back from your UK visit.
