Material strength 1100 vs 1670 dtx
Is there much noticeable difference between Zodiac's 1100 dtx material, as used on their latest Grand Raid boats and their 1670 dtx material, as used on their workboats? I noticed the 4m Searider also uses the lighter material but the larger Seariders use 1670 dtx.
Having inspected a new Grand Raid last year I must say that the Hypalon didn't seem that heavy/ strong when compared to the RIBs I have operated. We are looking for a new SIB and just wondering if the 1670 dtx boats would be a better long term investment.
