3D Superlight Twin Air 160

I need to ask a favour.

Does anyone have a 3D Superlight Twin Air 160, and if so, would you mind measuring it please? Considering it for a rather right installation and am trying to work out the missing measurements from the below.

Many thanks
Matt

No. However I did a flyby of Marine Superstore this morning and they kindly pulled one of the box to let me measure. Now got to work out if it'll fit....

On a rib? Thinking of getting one as an on board tender in time

We got a 3D 2.7 tender last spring, rolls up quite small and only 15kgs - about half the weight of the previous tender. Stored in a locker on the RIB and pushed by a torqeedo elec outboard, cracking combination and very handy to have onboard.

Twin Air 3D as an onboard tender

Sorry, cannot help with the measurements, but in relation to using an an onboard tender, we've got the 2.5 3D Twin Air which we use as a tender, sometimes onboard. We have a 2.5DF Suzuki as its engine but the electric ourboards mentioned above look a good option. They are a cracking tender, very hard wearing and durable. On short journeys, say of a mile or so, we haul the inflated tender onboard our rib, after removing the engine and have it upside down, secured by the painter to the ribs front post, strapped down on longer trips.

Many thanks for your response - good to see other people with some experience of the 3D tenders

How does the material hold up over time? Have you had any issues with punctures, tears etc? Does the lightness compromise any durability?

I'm thinking of getting one of these to use as a roll up tender, but I'm very space constrained - does it roll up easily and fit in it's bag?

Ditto what he said; any pics of it rolled up and on board?

In the store, the 160 rolled up just fine back into it's bag. I think you'd want your pump on "suck" to get all the air out properly, and then it rolled up easily to fit the bag. Dunno about the 2.7 of course.

Pics of the 2.7 rolled up would give me a good idea...

A bit fiddly to repack - but aren’t they all. It’s a large ruck-sac style bag, I’ll grab a pic in the next few days and post - its definitely a lot smaller packed than a similar sized conventional tender.
Our zodiac cadet (2.4) is abused, dragged up stoney beaches and left out in all weather - don’t think the 3D is as durable nor tough so we do treat it with a little more respect, but much easier to lift and throw in the RIB
