Compromise, compromise, compromise. Thanks and look forward to the pics
I dont think the 380 is the best Sib in the world (even though I have one), but it is the best performance packable sib in the world. However for 6 miles offshore and the amount of kit you carry, the Quicksilver is a better boat.
To the OP, I have had both. The Bombard is the better boat, no question, but the Honwave is extremely good as well. The 2 questions I would ask are whats the condition of the Bombard and what engine do you intend to use ? More powerfull engine options, choose the Bomabard, the floor is simply more rigid under higher power and heavier loads.
