Sorry Beerbelly, convention on here is kts so I presumed that's what you were talking.

If you were getting 14 or less on the Aerotec with a 15 then as Fenlander says something was wrong!

David, my (your) old Fastroller 340 with a 9.8 did as well as the Aerotec with a 15.

I did set up my 15 with a tiny tach but it's kaput now. At the time I think we were at 5400 or similar but I'd need to check that. Engine runs great, prop is near mint, pops up on plane. Is there anything else to suspect if it's down on power? Would it still reach max/normal revs at WOT?

Knocked this daft wotsit up quick as being able to pull the BAT up the beach with two people, one hand each - with a solid connection is much easier. The BAT lacks front bow side handles and having tried a bridle rope it never worked very well.

Wonderful aerotec

Hello everyone

Here is the presentation of the improvements made to my second BOMBARD aerotec 380.

I kept the first 13 years old and the last one was 9 years old. I do not regret my choices and the next will also be an aerotec. I rent a bigger boat for long walks when we are many.

I go for walks in the river (ex Paris and these channels) at sea (Corsica and Pyrenees) on the ocean (golf Morbilhan) of the scuba diving, ski nautic.

The best compromise not to break the bank by having a boat.



Aerotec 380 improvements

The front bag attachments are not strong enough.

1. Fix: sewing large straps

The knurled nuts (Emile Maurin) of the fixation of the bench rub and damage the fabric of the flanges.

2. Corrective: placement of rubber band (no bonding).

Premature wear of the aerotec mat on sufaces in contact

3. Fix: Protection of the aerotec carpet with a carpet TAPISUM style that I coated with a soft sealant to make it resistant and protective for the surface in contact with the aerotec carpet.

4. Patch: Added piece of inner tube with the part of the mat in contact with the transom.

Excessive stacking with the motor

5. Fix:

Flat addition on the transom to avoid stacking.

Flap attachment on the motor to reduce stacking.



6. Installation of a DEEPER sounder attachment (bluetooh) on the rear flap.

7. Attach a compass to the bench.

Engine with HB SUZUKI EFI 20 AES, engine with the best weight / power ratio of the market. (a little expensive) but a breathtaking consumption (10 times less than the DT15C SUZUKI-2 time).

Nanny 25l For very long walks.



Diag SUZUKI kit for engine maintenance.

HPA brand waterproof bag

VHF portable ICOM brand ic-m35.





Evolution under study

Laying foils in order to hover over the water.

See boat ZODIAC 5.50 semi rigid equipped with these foils on the net.

Interesting to read of your experience and modifications Nevada.

Did you put that anti splash plate on the transom when you had the 15hp outboard? I have found almost no splash with the Suzuki DF20AS.
