2.7 to 3.2m airdeck advice

I would appreciate some opinions on the following airdecks....
Honwave T70-T32, Sunsport AIB 290-320, Waveline 290-320.
To give a bit of background. The boat would be used on frreshwater only and with an electric engine as opposed to a petrol outboard. To be used mainly for angling purposes in europe so the requirement is mainly to be sturdy and be able to transport a reasonable amount of fishing tackle accross lakes that may be several hundred acres.
Any thoughts or experiences of any of the above would be really useful, I have a budget of not much more than 700.
Many Thanks

better off with an Aluminum hard deck. An airdeck will get punctured by fishing hooks and tackle. lots of poky bits. hard deck will run you 300 quid or so max.

If you are looking for portability and fast top air assembly an air deck is what you need, just place a proper carpet cut same size as air floor on top, just in case. A 320 will slide much better than a 270 small size with small engines.

Happy Boating
