Honwave T40 and DIY trailer

I m a really happy owner of a Honwave T40
Bought him about a few week and I m really surprised from his sea capacity

I made a unboxing and Assembling video for show it

Here my impressions and firs ride

First of all I created a trolley for launching because the slide of the port is really bad and I could not use the hauling wheels
So I create a trailer custom using a Amazon SUPROD trailer

This trailer is the resolution of our problems yayyyy!

Now Beginning with stowage in the car, a real treat !!! the boat closes perfectly in the bag, becoming of a size like of the first unboxing, well-made bag and with handles in the right place for transport.
The inflatable boat is very manageable and easily transportable.
The light and manageable floor also closes itself in a bag with handles, easy to move in two and to put away in the car (half the weight of the old my sib quicksilver 4.15 sport !) What a pleasure

Assemble it was a walk but we already knew considering it is a featherweight ... 20 minutes and it was nice to be ready to be launched

The trolley also went very well ... launching and hauling without moving a muscle and without causing problems with the tide ... Thursday, fortunately, the slide was not completely dry so it was a walk, but the system works perfectly and also in the worst case I am sure it will be fine !!! the main problem was solved .... yupppieeeeeeeee !!!!

The sea was not calm and there were about 10 knots of wind, so the data we collected are in average conditions but I have to say that it behaved wonderfully!
Comfortable and super-dry navigation, completely different from the quicksilver that slammed forcing us to maintain an average of low navigation .... in this case the honwave go awesome, it rode the waves and exceeded them!

Precisely for this reason the average navigation with rough seas has been very high and above all very funny, .... like being on a gokart !!!

The maximum peak reached with sea conditions of the day was 19 knots, but I am sure that in better conditions it will not be afraid to touch the 20 if not more, while the cruising speed 13 knots

What can we say ... we are fully satisfied, the small Honwave T40 has won!
