Hi, i recently bought a honwave 3.8 airdeck & while out on our first outing (2 adults 1 child) on flat water with a yamaha 20 2st short shaft motor i noticed the floor bulging to a high degree in the centre of the boat & the boat wouldn't plane very well.
also when on my own in the boat sitting on the left tube the boat was very unresponsive on turning to starboard and tended to crab to port unless i gave it more gas. the main tubes were pumped up to correct pressure and the floor was pumped up to .65 bar and not to .80 bar.(as was very difficult to achieve .80 bar with the foot pump. would the small difference in pressure cause these problems? Had a Zodiac with aluminium floor & inflatable keel before & it was brilliant!
I would be really happy for some advise & some thoughts as to weather i'd be better with a honwave with the ally floor & inflatable keel.
