Hello from Essex & Advice Required AVON S60

Hello All, I am new to the world of SIB's having just got back from a holiday on the Norfolk Broads, I noticed these little toys and thought I NEED ONE.
So eBay search started and a bought a little AVON S60 with a little Shakespeare Electric outboard.

So what advice, well I'd like to fit a floor into the S60 does anyone have advice on this or is it a case of making a template and fitting a plywood floor?

Also does anyone have any manual/spec for either my new boat or outboard pretty please as searching the internet is not helping me.

Boat is an AVON S 60 SPORT and the motor is a Shakespeare33.

Hi there - I've also got an S60 and need to make a plywood floor. Did you make any progress with yours and have you got any tips or a template I could get hold of?

many thanks

Nick

Strange that.
Why would it not have a capacity plate?
Maximum power will be 15 or 20 hp, it wouldn't stand the weight of the next class of engine and even with a 20 would be a scary ride flat out.

You might have to contact Avon for the answer.

It's missing its plate, but a copy exists on the internet. My question wasn't about the engine. It's rated at 12 HP.

I am trying to get a template for the wooden floor for a S60. Similar to this one

but for my model (S60).


thanks
Nick
