Have a look on the Avon website. There's pics on there.

Hi Nos,
thanks, i found it. But Its not a 5,4. A picture from behind without engine would be the best to measure out the cut.

Hi Mike
cant you just make the transom to fit the engines you have? as long as the anticav plates are around level with the bottom of the hull with the engines mounted on say 2 holes up, so you have movement up and down then that should be OK I would have thought, i am sure someone will correct me if i am wrong. do you have 2 engines already? if not i would say one would be better, faster more economical and cheaper and powerful, unless you really want the safety of two engines if you go out alone,
i think the max for twins is 2x40 a single is 90HP. performance should be better with one. less chance of one engine tearing the transom off too, especially if its not marine ply and it gets soggy!!

Mike might be worth giving E P Barrus a ring, I think there is a minimum distance apart the engines have to be mounted or they won't turn without touching. The Avon isn't the widest rib, so you are going to be mounting them quite closely together.

I have a feeling though if you fit 2 x long shaft 40 hp engines then later if you want to convert to single you will need to cut the transom down further.

This'll be the one you want. No cut-out.

Hi there,
i know this pic from Avon website, but i thought it would be a normal transom.
I read that Avon offers both possibilities, transom for single and twin engines.
But when i regarded the picture again, i have seen the straight cut of the transom. So it has to be the transom for twin. Its only cut i a line and not as high at the sides, contacting the tubes.

I have a 85HP Evinrude engine for it. But i also have the 40HP Mariner on my Zodiac, and i am looking for a second one. If i will find one, i am planing to fix both 40HP on the searider. I like that look.

In the pictures you see an ordinairy transom fiitted with a stainless steel made part to make the transom suitable for twin engine.

Make sure you seperate the engine's centre distance 55,9 cm (official Avon Searider Manual)
