If you need the dimensions of the original seat i am happy to measure mine for you. One small observation the nippers don't seem to be using the new kill cord.

On a previous SIB I had some vinyl lettering that worked really well. It was much thinner than normal and very flexible. Unfortunately I can't remember where it came from, but it does exist!

The transom has fittings attached which are in the images, I'm presuming they are for a set of wheels.
Anyone know any different?
Or know what make of wheels they are for?
They are standard, for the reassuringly expensive Zodiac/Bombard launching wheels

There might be a set going cheap though!

Really impressive job by the way

Thanks for the kind words John, and everyone else, now I know it runs and doesnít leak Iíll be looking at the more cosmetic aspects of the boat, so will investigate the vinyl lettering, and Iíll have a better look at the wheels later this evening.

Thanks for the offer of dimensions for the seat, John did offer earlier that I could have a look at his to take a pattern, so will probably take him up on that as Iím more likely to be passing his way than yours.

You are quite correct to notice they are not using the new kill cord I went to all the trouble of fitting, which is due to it getting caught in the tilt mechanism whilst in the back of the car, which almost separated the clip from the cord. And no, I didnít take a spare like I do in the RIB, and like I tell everyone to do.

I did try tying a loop in the end, but decided it was more trouble than it was worth in the situation we were in, and gave them special permission not to use it whilst there was two or three of us in the boat.
I also wound back the friction adjuster on the twist grip so that it at least dropped right back to idle when released.

Wrist slapped.

I meant to add that weíre really pleased with the wear patches, as they look like theyíve always been there, and the Starboard one covers the pin pricks mentioned before.

As we have enough material left over, we will probably add another shorter pair a little further forward to complete the look.

I successfully used stencils and flexible paint from http://www.funkymonkeyboatnames.com on my Bombard. It worked well but it's important to make sure the stencil is applied as firmly as possible to avoid the paint leaking under on the slightly bobbly PVC surface.

Now I'm not working on the boat so much it would be nice to pack it up a bit better to make some more space in the garage.

does anyone have a set of instructions they could scan showing the correct way to roll/fold the boat up once deflated?

Currently I'm just rolling it up by folding the transom over, but I'm sure there must be a better way to get it into as small a package as possible.

Thanks

Nasher.

It's important to pump the air out if you want to pack it small. I've found it's best to leave the valves open though, otherwise the tubes are vacuum packed and more difficult to fold.

Hold each tube up by the top edge when you pump the air out, then fold the top into the middle of the boat. It should then be about the same width as the transom. Fold the cones in across the transom and roll tightly towards the bow.

Do you have the storage "bag"? It's a wrapround job and helps get the boat into a manageable package.

Thanks Guys.

Exactly what I used to do with the old 2.8 Zodiac then.
I'm assuming you leave the deck in?

Unfortunately the boat didn't come with the bag. I'm on the look out for one, but I think it's highly unlikely I'll find one, so will probably end up making it.
