Different kind of SIB

My daughter is keen to buy an inflatable canoe ("kayak") that is made of hypalon.

She ordered a Zodiac one a few years ago but Zodiac didn't deliver and, in the end, she got her deposit back.

Does anyone know who builds good quality hypalon inflatable canoes?

PVC of the kind used on some Zodiac tenders would be ok, as a last resort.

Why an inflatable canoe? It's a lot easier to keep one of these than a windsurfer on a RIB!

There is usually a stand at the Southampton Boat show that sells such a thing.

If you can't wait that long...A google reveals.... ak

Looks similar (possibly the same as) the ones at the SBS.

Are we there yet?

how about.............

have a look at a windglider (made by mistral). I had a look at these at the last boatshow. they look quite useful as a sail boat tender / windsurfer / kayak.....and it packs down fairly small. as i remember (dodgy) they were 270

they have a website with video

That's matiboy (Phil) at "Yorke Trading" you're thinking of!

He used to sell them on ebay (no idea if they're comparable quality to t'other one tho')

His are called "Seahawk" -

Ahhh... I see he does a couple more models now....
