As said earlier "what an hour" and that's true, when you are from an island nation the briny is in your blood and you will always be back for more

So here goes
Got a honwave airdeck happy with that
Bought a bravo 12bst hp as the airdeck is too hard to blow up with a foot pump, took my rig on 2 boating hoildays this year and first one the pumped worked for 5 mins and the blew up, got it repaired and it lasted 30 seconds before it sounded like a bag of spanners so no boating as I'd left the foot pump at home both times, also had major agg with the wife as the boat will only fit in my outlander which she hates as the seats are to hard
Bought some of them expensive transom wheels from pacer marine, wheels were useless on anything other than Tarmac, bought some ballon tyres from wheeleeze which are great but had to get the transome axles lengthened, total cost another 180
Super annoyed that the coiles pacer supplied we're not stainless steel and not have horrible rust marks on the airdeck floor
I seem to have spent the whole year shelling out for 1 hours boating
Spose I'm ready for 2015
Oh and watch out if you capsize a honwave airdeck as the transom wheel pins will fall out and your wheels will float off(don't ask)

Love sibbing, and sorry for moaning
SOund slike a lot of faff and expense....
Why not get an electric pump?
Why not a trailer for the Sib?
Or a bigger sib with a bigger motor 3m and 15hp on a trailer?
Or why not get a rib on trailer?
You could tow it behind wifes car?
OR buy a new car? or a new wife?

These options listed in increasing cost order...........

Im getting sorted now, was new to all this having had moored boats before, it seems you have to go through a few sib and engine packages before you find the one that suits you, I have now joined a club with its own slip as launching off the beach is just not for me, which now leaves me in the position that I now longer need to deploy from the boot of my car, will carry on for the rest of this year with my current package but next year I think I will be looking at a 4m rib with a min of a 25hp on it probably a yam and a trailer, not exactly competing with the big boys but I feel it will have enough power for blasting about towing the grandchildren and a bit of fishing for me

Good plan, aim for 4m and 25-40hp perhaps even a leisure layout rather than the cramped jockey layout.
