Looks good!

Where did you get the clips for the bow dodger and is that bungee cord holding it on?

Bow dodger clips from zodiac not cheap and you need to heat up and reshape as they are for rib not sib strake.

6mm bungee cord ebay.

The bow dodger on the boat pic was the first try,
But the one on the sofa fits boat really good.
good luck

Seems to me like almost everything needs a modification in some way. I spent a lot more than that between the Wheeleez tyres and stainless material.

Cool, I'm on the hunt for something to hold a tent on with.

Yes peter youv got some cracking mods,
I think the launch wheels is best investment especially retrieving at low tide.
Next purchase is life jacket for dog as she likes sitting on the tubes.

Totally agree with you on the launch wheels....on the recent 'SIB club' cruise I stuck the wheels down then motored on up the beach ...almost to the point where you could step out with withou getting wet...

Great boats and great mods ...I'm on the hunt for a real bombard bow bag ( the stand in ripped itself to bits due to some err 'race' moments on same cruise....)

I nearly got mine out the garage today to give it some TLC - but the F1 got in the way...

What is required to put your wheels under the boat in the water? I would assume you can fairly easily push them under the water? Plus putting them back up is just a matter of cutting them loose and picking them up?



Due to buoyancy, I struggle and have to get in the water and force them back under the boat, or if I do not want to get in the water, I built a rope and pulley system that allow me to pull and push them underwater using an oar.

Putting my wheels up requires cutting one loose at a time and turning the boat with heavy throttle and they will POP to the surface. Then fold them up and put the pin in.
