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.

Thanks, I was amazed at how much kit we chose to take as going out that bit further. The truth is we'd all like more than one and I can see from this forum that the bombard is almost the ultimate all rounder.

Regards the 10 yrs, it's just something that stuck in my head when I originally researched it. Was told 10 for pvc and 20 plus hypalon. I hope its longer as mine is an 08 but its still superb now. I would just be wary buying a 10 yr old pvc boat if it were that old. The point to the op is, find out more about bombard and share the info for more advice.
