This is mine, my first inflatable its been great this year. Proper RIB next year (hopefully). Use the launching trolley to take it down to the river avon, about five minutes away. Lovely yamaha malta for the river, 9.9hp for larger waters.

P.S. its sat on the hardboats trailer in the picture, its not a weird 4 wheeled trailer. & I'm the tow vehicle.

Nice setup. On our RIB forum site here in Holland there is a discussion on the flaps you use. Are they ok?

I'm quite pleased with them.

The boat will plane at lower speed and lower revs, (1 up about half throttle with the 3hp!) The boat remains level, and will plane at a lower speed. (I can plane and just about keep within the speed limit on the river 6mph , )

They didn't improve top end speed, I get 10mph with the 3hp. I haven't tried the 9.9 without the lifters. But can get 25mph, perhaps a bit more with less weight in the boat)

They'll perform diffently on other boats, but have increased planing weight and reduce fuel consumption.
