Hi john, very interested in your aerotec. Obviously I'm a tad concerned about the repairs, as I'm going out to sea. How big and how many repairs are there? And excuse my ignorance, but are these like a patch over a puncture type repair?

aerotec every time.. the deep V floor not only gives you a better ride but also deck remains mostly dry as any water inside runs away to the bottom. saves you sliding around on your knees in Fish guts and slime!
Also Honwave are made by Sun Inflatables in China.. not sure i would want to go to sea with that in mind..
7 mins from 1 to pic 2! they are awesome little boats and very capable when the weather turns on you

What monkey Matt said...

My 380 has repairs (I think from hitting something on a sib club outing). I'd trust it over lots of other boats.

I'm sure the honwave is wider and heavier. More of a platform to work from and less off a v in the hull.

Ok so I've looked up Paul Tilley, and now have total confidence in the repairs. Are you open to an offer or is the price fixed? Pm me please John Kennett lets do a deal ;-)

If this doesn't work with engine, get te boat over the wall, then put the engine

This is what I think I'm going to do. I will take an old bit of carpet or something to lay over the wall, slide the boat over, and attach engine the other side.

I'm swaying towards the honwave t38 airdeck. I have been offered a zodiac futura mk2 c for 1500 but think it's too big for my engine.

I had a Zodiac Mk2 fastroller last year, tried it with a 15hp and was pleasantly surprised. It went really well and I ended up using the 15 nearly as much as the 25.

I have had a Honwave V airdeck as well, great boat boat and would buy another, but I think the futura planed more easily.

Hi all, I have bought myself an aerotec 380, used, no repairs, with a brand new set of launch wheels. I think this is the right way to go and will post some pics soon. Thanks for helping me make my decision.
