Kaman thanks for they pics, I can see myself using your trailer as a building block on converting this bike trailer here. The pole to hold the bow up for draining is a nice touch
Are the bunks level with the road, or are they set on slight incline to lift the nose preventing build up of water while sitting in garden or being towed in the rain etc ?
Having sold the other 3.8 sib ( the one with the 2 chamber issue !! ) I've managed to get my hands on a slightly newer, deal has been done and now have a zodiac 4.2 - just been delivered today.
The main reason for buying this was that it is hypalon and has 5 chambers instead of 2 ( no thoughts of putting foam balls inside the tubes now !
also being slightly bigger the deck space should be more comfortable, and it seems to be a good quality boat.
The floor is ply coated with grp - which is pretty heavy, but not much heavier than the old floor that was in the 3.8 so can't complain !
The boat is pretty heavy... that is the only downside i can see so far, however I don't think it will be too heavy to manage on the large pair of transom wheels, also wonder if it will get on a plane with just the 15hp - but I'll find out soon enough !
what are your thoughts on the boat guys ?
I've never seen this model before - since it is an older boat will it be possible to find out more details/ specs etc from the serial number ?
such as weight, max HP, year of manufacture etc....
How does this boat compare against other sibs out there ?
If money was no object I'd have went bought a newer Bombard or futura like most of you guys have here but for an older boat - so far it looks to be just fine for us to go fishing - safe enough to go a mile or so off the coast?
