The Wooden floor has 3 layers of fiberglass mats on its underside, and that has been flowcoated, to stop the GRP to be damaged by the water. Same has been done to the Transom extending downwards into the Flooding hull.

The Console has arrived, many thanks to Tim M







It's Original-Avon, but it will need a bit of love and work to return to its orginal shape.
It will be re-painted, and luckily i have enough instruments for all those holes

Thats the original part glassed into the deck to screw the transom support struts on. We only had one of them in our boat, the second one had been lost, so we replicated it in stainless steel.
We also used this method for the console fasteners.






The Hull of the Boat has been finished, just needs various bits and pieces glued to it, then it will be Flowcoated and the Tubes will be glued back on.

Gluing in the Drain plug, and we even filled in some of the air bubbles on the deck.

Transom Supports







The Console. It stays removable, as we glassed in bolts into the deck.

More Console work, I painted it and patched some of the places where the Gelcoat had chipped off.

Decided to leave the holes in though, saves me drilling new ones for various stuff.

What paint did you use? I am thinking about either spraying mine or using using flowcoat.

Console is painted with normal 1-k Paint, since there was already Gelcoat on it.

The boat will be painted in 2-K paint.

If you only want to repaint it, Flowcoat is a slight overkill.

The bolts for the Fuel Filter, glued into the Transom





The Tubes have been glued on! I used CT1 Adhesive, and it worked a treat! Now just have to wait.

Theoretically the boat would actually float and stay dry inside now so the Avon is finally a real, proper boat again

I wasn't home this weekend, so my dad continued a bit on the boat



Console has been screwed down with foam between the deck and the console to stop it from making noises







Motor has also been put on, there's a new transom protection thing made from aluminium.
We've ordered a 40l tank, that will go between the transom braces, giving us 74 miles range on WOT.



Anti-Ventilation Plate sits under the keel line, so no ventilation probs

They will stay like that.
They are painted 4 times with special hypalon paint, the first two layers are easy to get off, the other two are a hell of a job to remove, and I simply don't have the patience for that.

Maybe a retube in a few years..

Tank has arrived, 42l, will be positioned between the transom supports and held in place by a "cage" arrangement.

On we go.

Modified the Trailer a bit so the whole boat won't move foreward slightly every time I brake.


Transom is done, everything has been screwed/glued into place, the engine sacrifical plate with 1,5'' offset to starbord as stated for 50HP engines in the Manual.


the console with the Tach and Carlingswitches for the Pump & Choke



Tomorrow the Engine& Console will be mounted, just missing longer battery & throttle cables, then she's good to go

yeh I know what you mean, are you going to spray the deck with some sort of non slip textured finished or something like that as its going to be slippery as heck left like that. i do congratulate you on persevering with it!
Personally i would have put 2x25litre carryable fuel tanks as not all moorings/locations have fuel and the 50 litre fuel tank is not carry-able full of fuel. just my thoughts!
