Simple SR4 question ?

Am about to buy all new screws for console fixing but ..

How think is the original deck on the SR4 'deluxe' ?

I dont want them to punch all the way through and let water in underneath.

I had that sinking feeling once!

You should already have some inbuilt threads in your deck so use them if you can, if not I reckon the deluxe deck is around 8mm thick. I have never had a deluxe apart before but I don't think the air tanks are near the console, I think they are near the transome so you will need to seal each screw with sealant or you will replicate my sr4 fountain

Delux deck is GRP, so you'll inevitably end up penetrating through to the void below.

Plenty of Sikaflex required.

Oh and seal off the flooding hull - you know it makes sense.

I concur, this summer was the first with our SR5 and I've come to the conclusion that I don't like the flooding hull, it's off the plane too quickly and takes to long to get out the water.

Funny someone should mention that. I sold my first Avon adventure 400 to a guy who installed his own console and seat. He called about a week after buying it and was very upset he could not get it off the trailer. Turns out he used really long screws. Not only had he screwed the console to the deck but low and behold he screwed it to the trailer bunk as well. I did promise him i would never tell anyone .......
