Bark inflatables

They are made in the Ukraine. Decitex fabric and seem to be 60% of the cost of a similar size Honwave. Any experience of them on the forum ?

Kolibri is another brand.Over pressure valve installed. Are welded seams superior to glued ones. They mention cylinder joints are hot air welded but seams seem to be glued . Any experience of these on the forum ?

I have wondered about Bark inflatables for a while also. I don't think many people have bought one. I fear the low price puts them off. Would be nice to hear someone's experiences though

A cheaper sale price it's not a symptom of bad quality made, now a days all Sibs are manufactured with higher quality materials such as PVC or Hypalon fabrics made in Korea, Germany and Europe.

The issue is that reputed brands are sold in UK at way higher prices compared to same waterrafts sold in other countries. As inflatables are sold way less than any other good you have to make huge profits out of them to stay in business specially if running a large one.

If those Sibs are fresh recently built with good quality 2 part glue nothing will go wrong with them, any inflatable boat repair facility can handle any repair if in need.

Happy Boating
