16' avon bucket boat seat tube availability

Hello,
I have a 16' Avon bucket boat that is missing on of its two tube thwarts. I'm not sure of the year my raft was made, but does anyone know where I might find a reasonably priced tube?
Many thanks.

Way to be helpful and show your internet superiority Rebel

Pete, tray calling around to whitewater rafting companies in your area, or even far away ( a thwart is cheap to ship). Tell them you are looking for a thwart for an XXXX year avon raft. The serial number on the raft should tell you what year the boat is.

Avon might be able to sell you one, but that depends, Googler Avon rafts for their contact info.

Good luck!

I'd call RM rafts to see if they have anything that will work. Way cheaper than looking for a $250-$300 hypalon Avon thwart for an older bucket boat.

Here's one for $70 from RM:
RM Rafts, LLC - Top Low Cost Provider, Raft Packages, Rafting Supplies

I'm sure you could glue the thwart attachment in to your boat with Stabond or something.
