Loved that boat to bits though, so much fun. I'm verging on regretting selling it to buy my current boat.
the honwave is a compromise and i have to accept that
or maybe i will keep pushing it
ive had some real grin moments in rougth seas flat out wedging myself between the tubes to stay in the boat (kill cord worn)

They feel so damn stable and safe you can't help but give em a bit of stick :-) I've got a galeon galia 485 now, wanted something I could sleep on to make the most of my weekends. It comparatively costs a fortune to run though, 5mpg at walking pace and then storage costs etc.

Think It's only a matter of time before I switch back to a SIB!

We have probably identified a gap in the market, a ~5m cabin SIB. The cabin being inflatable like vango airbeam tents. I might regret posting this; I'd buy one. If someone reads this and steals my idea I want a free cabin SIB :P
