Aussie yacht visiting UK asking for advice with our tender
Hoping the forum doesnít go quiet with everyone staring at the yachtie wandering in, but when you need some advice, go to the experts.
My wife and I are half way through our circumnavigation from Australia in our yacht, using a Zodiac CFR 310 as a tender.
Itís done sterling service over the last 5 years Ė albeit with a pretty pattern of patches now on the tubes from coral nicks. But sadly the H2P inflatable floor hasnít done so well.
Weíve had an ongoing annoying little air leak from the seam of the flap that attaches the floor to the transom, which despite valiant efforts Iíve never quite managed to stop. However, we could live with pumping the floor up every day.
But now the floor has developed brown patches where the material has become very brittle, is cracking and developing pin-hole leaks. And theyíre big areas so sadly I guess the floor is cactus.
Have looked into getting a replacement floor but the £650+ Iíve been quoted is way out of our budget!
Have tried google with no luck, so my question is whether there are any places anyone can recommend where I might be able to pick up a 2nd hand floor?
Or any other suggestions?
