Baby RIB(alright SIB)will be great chucked into the back of the car to go to the med etc - would have been great in Gib last year!!!
If only it was still summer I would be temted to go to Guernsey in it - or is that a little too ambitious???
i have the 340 airdeck version with a 15 yam 2 stroke, couple of tips
if you dont have an electric inflator then the ones in argos or cheap shops that cost around 7 quid are great for inflating most of the way up and deflating to make it easier to get in the bag thing
i also propped mine up to 12 pitch and it goes like stink, slower out of the hole so to speak but i get excellent cruise and top end
also wheels are vary considerably in the impact they have on towing and moving and dragging up beachs, i got the most expensive ones with bent curved arms which put the wheels under the boat when down and they are amazing
my engine a 9.9 but converted it to a 15 for 30 quid
had a bombard tropic which was not very good in comparison and also have an ax3 as a tender
dont let bass touch the floor or tubes as they will make tiny microscopic holes in it for you!!!!!!!
in meva this year we came across a shark longer than the boat by around 1-2 foot each end, but did not have camera or phone to capture the moment...
we should get together for a trip to france in our sibs, ;-)
