Hi there,

I have a Honwave 3.8 IE (Airfloor) and can say they are good for the money. I was wondering why you would want to put a solid floor in it?

Either have the Airfloor or go for an Aluminium floor model, or am I missing something?

Jake

As Victor Meldrew would say "you can not be serious".

At the recommended pressure of 0.8 bar (11.6 psi) the Hondawave V air deck puts the "R" into SIB

Honwave 3.8m airfloor

Hi.... Many thanks for your replies. Because I found it hard to manhandle my Honwave 3m ali.on my own, I put it on a trailer which makes things so much more easy. I realy wanted a slightly bigger inflatable in the first place and now with the trailer I will be able to manage something like a 4m.
I was wanting a solid hull rib and have taken a fancy to the Mercury Ocean Runner 4m. However, I think that the Honwave inflatables offer fantastic value for money and when reading comments in this forum about the 3.8m airfloor it made me think. The 3.8m is actually quite a bit lighter than the 3m. ali, which, trailer or not, must be good for me !!
My problem is that I have fitted full remotes on my 3m ali and will want to do the same with a new boat. If I can fit a wooden (ply) floor to the 3.8m I can then fix my seats and steering etc to it. Cheers !!

If you now have a trailer so moving the boat about isn't an issue then a 4m Honwave with alloy floor would be better/easier?? The 3.8 air floor has a shaped shallow V floor whic may be hard to fit an over-floor to. Personally I'd not consider adding a floor... get the right boat in the first place. If you want a small rib best to get one.
