Hi Amukinado..IMO ..you will find that when asked for recommendations ... owners mostly always say their boat is the best and some even tend to rubbish all other brands ?... so my best advice is try to talk face to face owners of other brands of SIBs. Watch their boatís performance with your own eyes .. and take some forum feedback with a pinch of salt. I appreciate that is difficult if there are no other SIBs in your area to watch or chat with owners on a personal basis.
I spent the weekend with the owner of this inflatable floor Honwave..and he is over the moon with it. He tells me it the best SIB out and handles the chop fine.. it has no air floor problems that he is aware of. I also attended the Scottish SIB outing organised by this forum and other airfloor honwaveís handled very rough water.. no problem. None mentioned floppy floors ?
I watched this Seapro inflatable floor at the weekend too..and it also looked a very good boat and handled the rough stuff magnificently. Unfortunately..the floor sprung a leak ..so watch for sharp objects in your boat..even sharp stones can damage them..and I donít think that is just something that happens just to Seapro airfloors. Small sharp stones or other objects can work their way under mats and not be noticed. Something to be aware of with all airfloors ?
There is also the F Rib which is a relatively new boat on the block.. I watch it recently too and spoke direct with its owner. It packs very small..has a light fibre glass bottom..perfect for fishing.. it certainly held its own in the rough stuff..but it didnít appear to out perform the other leading brands.. despite many U Tube videos of Russian Military type guys stating it was the only inflatable suitable for hard use and heavy seas.
Sorry ...I cant recommend or comment on the aerotec as I know no one personally who has one..and none have appeared at any of the outing I have been at.. so in Scotland at least..they are not as common as they may appear to be on this forum ? Research the forum on this boat and you will find some owners also admit they are not always the ideal SIB..but then no boat ever is.
The Honwave and Seapro ..in force 4 winds and waves in exposed Firth of Lorne.. they proved to me that they handle chop just fine..and neither boat took on any water over the side..kept on the plane 90 % of the time ..just throttling off to pass over the larger breakers. To suggest the aerotec is the only boat that handles the chop well ... is very inaccurate information.
As a parting note..also be aware that I am writing this through a forum and you donít know me ..so take it all with a pinch of salt too.. if you wish.
What I do believe is true ... is its great having the boat bug..Im sure we all agree on that. Best wishes for your next boat.. whatever one it is.
