What model?

I am new to ribs and I just bought an older(1985) avon rib, How do I find out what model it is? and any more information about it. All that I have is the serial number..to go by.

Thanks,Rodney.

It might be worth speaking to Avon directly or put some pic's up... i'm sure the Avon enthusiasts would be able to identify for you.

Welcome to RIBnet, that looks like a well looked after boat for its age. I'm sure someone will be along soon with the info you need. Happy ribbing.

Thanks for the replies,that is what I was thinking, The previous owner had a 50hp 2 stroke on her, I opted for a 30 for now, but hope to upgrade to a 40 four stroke next season. There is also a plan to lower the console and move it foreward and attach a seat of some kind, Right now I have to stand up all the time... but I hope to have a lot of fun with it...

Thanks again,Rodney

Bloody h__l Rodney, posting on Ribnet at your age is one thing, but renovating a RIB - does your Dad know about it

Sorry about my friend, he was your age when he started fitting out his Vipermax but now has his name down on the Zimmer frame waiting list
