Looks fine to me. Get a cord and try it, if it doesn't replacing it's an easy job.

PS. Wouldn't have thought you'll have any issues with the insurance. The CE category doesn't really mean much in reality - just because its a cat D boat doesn't mean you'd have any using it at sea.

Insurance

Hi

In reply to your insurance question:

Although only a RCD CAT D hull, the 2.7 Airdeck is a well respected tender to bigger boats that often have to use outlying moorings, so ventures into the sea are commonplace.

I don't think you would have an issue, unless the policy stated that only a CAT C boat or better could be used in the sea.

I insured a 3.2m SIB last year with Covermyboat, as they have a specific Small Inflatable policy for boats under 11ft. There was nothing in the policy wording to suggest it couldn't be used in open water.

Just be careful buying the cheap ones, they break very easily after they have been used for a few months. They suffer in UV light. Seen quite a few break without pulling the switch off. Genuine ones are not cheap for what they are but they work!!
