Take the plank out and rebuild it.

Quite a bit. I've played with both and I wouldn't go back to having the flooding hull-there's a definite advantage in having better holeshot in the rough stuff.

Might be worth ringing Barnet Marine (google them) and ask what they've got?

Have you got any photos of yours Nos? ie console layout and photos of trunk arrangement?

Looks like I've got my work cut out anyway, whats the best method for removing and filling where the plank used to be?

Don't know-I quite like my original console now

Pics of mine are here from when Matt H owned:-

How do you block the holes on the hull in a way so you can revert back if you want the flooding hull?

I don't think the Humber consoles much wider than the Avon ones?

Yours looks smart Nos.

Its good to see how others have done they boats to give me ideas.

I haven't even seen mine yet as I'm away and got it ditched at my Dads.

Mine's semi-permanently blocked off with a stainless disc with a bung over the stern and some expanding rubber corks with bolts through in the bow holes. It's removable but it'd take an hour or so. I removed the rubber disc as it was leaking in through the bolt in the centre.

Nothing saying you can't glue some hypalon over the holes though which would be easy to remove but you'll need a way to empty any water out that gets in there.

Cheers The main problem you'll find is the original Avon console is offset by about 6" to starboard and the plank is the same width as the console.

Probably best to get a tape measure on it before making too many plans

Was the reason for the offset to fit a stretcher alongside the console or was it some other reason?
