Looks to be ideal for the purpose. Good price too . What motor will you be using with it? While on the sailboat, will you be keeping it inflated, partially inflated (ie. folded in half lengthwise with the motor left on transom), or rolled up? If not kept fully inflated while on the sailboat, you will probably want to have electric air pump on board for rapid inflation.

Nice sib, congrats! Inflate all tubes to therir correct working pressure 3, 3.5 PSI and 10/12 PSI for inflatable floor and if possible place a cutted nice matt (floor form) on top to protect it better. Get yourself a nice electric air pump. Enjoy.

Happy Sibbing

i forgot to mention the sib comes also with a plywood floor.

i assume the sib is vinyl and not hypalon?

Late model Zodiac? Most likely PVC.

I'd say you did really good at $600.
