Best price new down here (Plymouth) is Tony Hole Marine who was doing them at 895 boat only (with it's kit), he had good prices on packages too. Worth checking out. They are online!

Also can you tow a ringo and kneeboard with this with the 20 hp engine as the dealer said not to.
Definitely PVC! Nice boat (used to have one) and it will tow a ringo or kneeboard

I have just bought a brand new T38IE and hate it! A Yamaha 20hp on the back and inflated to the correct pressure by the dealer on air floor and tubes and it acts like a wild pig once it plains, the air deck goes like jelly and wobbles here there and everywhere then the thing becomes so unpleasant none of the family want to go on it.

Had a 320 Suzumar with ali floor which was so stable it was like a RIB, I inflated the air foor as far as I could but no better, any ideas as the dealer doese't seem to give a hoot?

From what I've read they all do it except the Bombard 380.
The only thing you may want to consider is that the pressure will drop once on the water so may be worth toping up once in the water.

Other than that, should of stuck with the Ali floor.

It can be nearly erradicated with pressure and weight distribution but as above in SIB land the only air deck to feel like a RIB is the Bombard. I had a Yam 380 and they do feel like a *proper* boat in comparison to air floor SIBs.

I had exactly the same thing with my Honwave, I thought the boat was coming apart and on plane it was like you were on ice not water.

I headed straight back in to shore and pumped up the keel until the crappy pump couldnt put any more air in. Problem solved. A great handling little boat.
