Love it !, My car is red and also goes like shi# of a stick urmm can a 15hp 2 smoke be re-mapped pmsl.

As for red I think it stands out better for other craft , as for the fishing I looked up a local dealer and on the web site it mentions that the 380 are NOT suitable for fishing

Off Dealers site

Whilst the Bombard Aerotec 380 is good at most things, we have to say that fishing is not one of them. The inflatable floor (and the slope on it) tends to make it a poor choice of inflatable boat for serious anglers.

Who said I was a serious angler?

Has anyone here ran one of these with a Twatsoo 9.8 or a Soozook DT25c 3-cyl (both 2-strokes)?

It is true in some respects, a flat solid floor SIB would always be favourite for fishing from being more solid, flat, easier to stand on and easier to bolt stuff to..... but plenty of people use the Aerotec for fishing - just pop a rubber flooring mat in or cut a thin piece of ply to cover and flatten it.

Bombard

I have a 9.8 Tohatsu 2st and a Suzuki DF20.
Great fun with the Suzuki but the 9.8 will still easily plane with one aboard, or two/three at a push, and still feels lively. Would say the boat really warrants 15hp min to realise its potential and have some fun.
However, mine is the grey one so acknowledge it will never keep up with those little Red Devils. 👹

Nasher's Bombard topic will be useful:
