Hello Mate,

I have no experience with the Excel's but im looking at the 4.3m red and black version.

I know they are a good quality boat as iv seen one in the flesh. They look well made and come with all the extra's at a good price.

I have a 3.3m sib at the mo with the ally floor and it pretty cool, nice and stable and a good solid platform for use with diving and fishing stuff.

Cheers.

I had a 2.7 Airfloor. I was very very impressed - I guess the thieving git who nicked it thought the same.

Has all the 'bits' you'd want to blow it up & go. Good value for the money too.

If I needed another SIB of this type I'd get another one and would recommend them.

Yeah but if you do get another one you know we are all going to do a sweepstake for how long it lasts before it's nicked ... chuckle chuckle, sorry just could not resist.

I think if I was Peter, I'd make a big show of bringing the new one into the garage, then be setting tripwire flashbangs inside...
