Phil and Fenlander, here's an idea Biggi on here gave me the heads-up on тележка Т9.8.wmv - YouTube
Easy to fit/remove, easy to place motor onto the boat and for the car you could also make an upper frame with wheels that clamped into the transom clamp.
It's something I'm hoping to make as soon as Aldi sell their sack barrows again for 20 which will give me all the parts I require to make it.

If the sack barrow doesn't happen then I'll be doing something like these drawings found on the web.

Yup, dolly wheels on a board, fastened to transom clamp , lower into your boot then lift up at the skeg and slide the outboard in.
Obviously working on a pick-up :van/ estate type thing.
Four strokes, I guess you'll have to them remove the cavitation trolley to allow you to rest your engine on the correct side up.

Thanks for the info on the SR4 Boatnomad ..its appreciated . Unfortunately..I think the weight and engine options kill it for me ?
I had a 150kg hardshell a year or so back.. so know how difficult that was to shove across shores. The SR4M is 150kg too. Plus I love my 25hp two stroke short shaft..it was one of the last legal ones..I know it inside out so would be reluctant to get a new outboard too. The SR4m is a longshaft ..so again not an option

For me .. I think it boils down to three ..these two are aluminium hulls around the 4 meter mark.. ( I dont want to go any shorter as the 4 meters seems to ride between troughs better in a chop)

They both weight 75kg approx..half the weight of a searider..and both take a 25hp short shaft

http://www.ribeye.co.uk/our-boats/t-series/ts-400

Or of course a F RIB around 4m..but Im a bit dubious on the folding parts..as I would trailer it anyhoo. ?

Sorry Philpot .. for going off topic on the good review..Im just thinking through options..so should probably start another topic...with my dilemma

A great review, always good to have a new concept - but I cannot really see any advantage over other hard floor SIBs or in HP floors, the Aerotec given the high cost, weight and bulk. The main issue though is the performance will surely be no better than any other hard floor SIB skating around on the same very shallow V profile and the keel at the rear is nearly flat - this unlike the Aerotec which is unique for it's relative deep V but most importantly and often missed this V is where you need it most for handling - under the transom. Someone mentioned that he thought the Aerotec was overpriced - new it probably is but you can find them easily at under 1000* usually in superb condition. You need to try an Aerotec to experience how different they are to all other SIB's but in return I'd love to try a folding SIB like this too.

Cannot help thinking though that it tries to solve a problem that might not be there...?

*As an example this giveaway price outfit was listed yesterday - engine alone is worth 1200 but there's a nice bundle of extras too:

Max, I think everyone knows how much you love your Bombard and quite right too, they are a superb performer however there are those of us who perhaps want something different.

Okay let us look at what is ticking my boxes and I stress MY BOXES.

I use the boat or kayak ALL year round, going out in the worst weathers fishing and firstly I want a sib that is fast to get ready and fast to put away.--------the F-rib is very very fast.

I would ideally want an aluminium floor but very slow to get ready and in winter freezing cold hands and metal, no thanks.

I stand up in the boat for some of my fishing and whilst I do this on my air floor, it is not as good as a solid floor, the F-rib is a solid floor.

To have a storage footprint as small as possible, the F-rib is very small and far less than any sib I have had at 3' x 18''.

As an aging old tart, I want something that is easy to move around off the water, the F-rib is much easier for me to load in the car and walk to and from the car.

The air floor will be affected by very cold water reducing pressure, the rivers and lakes that I fish let alone the sea are usually close to freezing in the depths of winter, no pressure to concern myself with as no air floor, the F-rib is a SOLID GRP floor.

The deep 'V' of the Bombard is superb for handling but having tried a friend's, not much good for standing and moving around fishing ( for me at least), the F-rib is very stable and easy to stand up and move around in.

I use the sib on my own quite often so ease of handling off the water is very important to me, having played with the F-rib, it is easier off the water to maneuver, get in and out of the car, set up and much quicker to put away.


We all like different things and it how the layout and functionality of a product that appeals to different people, I like the Areotec very much but it is not for me.

'cannot help thinking though that it tries to solve a problem that might not be there....'

I suppose it depends on what you want from a boat and all the associated issues that anyone finds when they use a boat that dictates whether there is a problem or not.

Phil

Philpot, I couldn't have worded that better!!!!
I'm not anti bombard, but it would be utterly useless for my needs.
Everyone is different, that's what makes life intersting. 👍

I like my Bombards performance, but I'm always on the lookout for something better for fishing.

I like John Kennetts suggestion of a group test.
