After a horrific Journey through Bavaria I finally got my Avon Searider 4M
The Tubes have been painted in some kind of tube paint - looks horrible, I'll remove it later on
The Transom has been strengthened with an Aluminium Plate from the inside and a wooden one from the outside.
I Suspected the transom was rotten so i literally ripped it off
Turns out i was right, the whole Transom was a mouldy mess
It will be fully rebuilt. I'll remove the tubes from the sides of the transom, rip the wood and the front GRP out, rebuild the wooden part of the transom out of a wooden plate and re-glass it in.
The Deck has suffered a little too, i'll sand away the top layer of GRP and wood, and leave the bottom one and then rebuild in in wood&GRP.
or do you think i should rebuild the whole deck?
I want to retain the flooding hull too.
This is the motor that will go with it
