Bombard

Had my first outing in a Bombard 380 yesterday think im a convert ;-) as for a main dealer saying there NO good for fishing pfftt

Only thing I would do is something comfy to sit on as I had sort ass pmsl afterwards,

Any way many thanks Stray for the trip even though the fish didn't wanna play ball and the conditions were on my limit and I think Strays with some nice lumpy swells,
but the I felt safe in the 380, Ive been browsing the web since I got home looking for a bombard

Glad you enjoyed it, it was a tough day for fishing. At least you got a feel for what the Bombard can handle, one ride out is better than a hundred videos.
It looks a lot better this morning,
but I have to paint the garage door.

Bombard

If you're after a new Aerotec, Barnet Marine have a grey one for 1995 including delivery.

Exactly the same as the red.
The 'Ltd Edition' grey probably marketing babble for not as popular. At least the light grey tubes will not absorb quite as much heat in the sun as the red. 😀

Same but red is faster!

And looks much better.

New price is silly expensive but there have been (still are) quite a few on eBay lately and one or two on here - expect to pay around 700 to 900 for a nice one but they hold their value once the initial depreciation has passed. Best thing is to look for an outfit with 15 2 stroke around 1800 and save a chunk on buying separately.

According to the 'Pirates Code' this only really applies to cars. But these are only guidelines. ⚓️

Sorry to interrupt, but why is the Aerotec bad for fishing? It's because of the deck's shape?
