What diameter is the pipe?

Thanks

Phill

1-11/8 inch diameter. the pads welded on the ends are about 2" wide so there is half inch either side of the tube.
the bolts glassed into the deck are M10.
and yes its thick wall stainless tube.

if they have been removed, you will have to glass some new ones in.

I had to put some new ones on mine, get an m10 bolt welded to a flat stainless plate about1.5" square and epoxy and screw it directly to the plywood deck, epoxy a piece of ply over the top, then glass over the lot.

heres a picture of one matt H did you can see where they go.

Not sure whats happened to it, doing a bit tapping sounds like a trunk has been covered, feck knows what the hole in the deck is for? It doesn't go through in to the flooding bit though and has been sealed pretty well.

I want to get it back to someway near original looks and build.

I noticed there is a hollow bit on mine,that is totally sealed, maybe its there so you have the option of having a bilge pump well, which is what i guess its been used for on yours.? there should be two or 3 elephant trunk holes depending on the age of the hull. you can have the best of both worlds, pump and trunks. or the other possibility is the flooding hull needs a volume reducer so it doesnt sit too low with the hull flooded. might have to ask someone at avon.

Or use a bighead.

Looking at the photo of the transom, do you know what condition the plywood is in? Has a tendency to go a little "soft" over time. If it's not in good condition the struts might be the least of your worries.
