3.8m inflatable

After a little help I currently have a cheap 3.3m inflatable with alu floor and had a 1961 evinrude 10hp on it which did me fine for 2 seasons and recently bought a 9.8 hp tohatsu 2 stroke for it that I still have not used .But now I have been looking at a 3.8m seapro with a mariner 20hp 4stroke all new ive got a bit of money due so may splash out but wondered how portable this would be without it being on a trailer my car is a landrover discovery . thanks for any input

Dunno, but if you're thinking of flogging the old Evinrude,my friend 's just bought an inflatable and is looking for a cheap 10hp.

As-is would be preferable actually, anything to keep the price down!

What is your budget for your new package? I might have just what you are looking for....used but in 'as new' condition, portable and ready to go

if its an alu floor i would say definitely no. they are a pain to assemble and weigh a fair bit. If it is an inflatable floor, maybe. They are lighter and require less assembly time. But i would definitely recommend a bravo 12v electric pump. pumping up the floor is a nightmare, but these make it quick and easy.

Still easier with a little trailer though

My budget will be about 3500 it really needs to be an alu floor though as it will be primarily used for fishing got an alu floor in my current 3.3 and yes its heavy but ok to assembe
