Honda Inflatables

Hi all,

I changed jobs a few months back and the blighters took my laptop, so have been off the scene for a while.

I am in the process of purchasing a tender to my 5.5m Tornado. I currently own a Honda 5hp longshaft. I have ordered a 2.7m Inflatable floor Honda Tender.

Does anybody have any views/experiences with them?

I'm off to Cornwall on the 27th for a week of freezing diving and wakeboarding.

Great bit of kit, I bought a 3.2 air deck last year and use it with my 8hp yamie no problem. It's light enough that I could lift it onto the engine box and strap it down (minus engine). The only thing that I would say is make sure that you inflate it to the corrct pressure as it does make a difference and also watch out for the oars I lost half of one going up the Sound of Mull.....operator error. Honda did replace it no problem though

Hey Shaggy,

I have been following your threads regarding the speed trip to St Mary's. Trouble is I have a 7 month pregnant chick and 6 year old with me, whom would rather pull teeth than make a crossing with me - hence my last tri was a solo effort.


Plus my engine is a guzzler - there and back probally cost 300 in fuel.

I am making the crossing to Jersey in the spring with 8 lads a tent and a heap of beer - will just take it easy over Xmas.
