My Sib to Heavy

Well after some deep thinking ,my 4m sib is darn to heavy,as i don t drive i rely on other's and mates to take me,and i have been getting out a fair bit so can t grumble,the 2.7 i have is just to small,we have fun catching in it, but i wanted somthing bigger,the problem is the alloy floor ,makes the boat real heavy,i did mess about with a wood floor but just had enough now,its best with its own floor,i was wondering what a PVC,YES I KNOW WON T BE AS GOOD QUALITY,but something 3.5 wood floor be easier for 2 or 3 to handle?i would be prepared for a straight swap ,and who ever swapped would be getting a real bargain with this sib any one not to far from me and intrested.

I had a Honda IE3.8 air floor - could handle that by myself. But its the engine that makes the rig heavy. Had a 20Hp Honda - could just about launch and recover on a fairly steep slip myself. Thats with a road trailer - If I used the launching wheels it was even lighter.

Sorry to hear that Thorny, hope you get something sorted.
I have gone from originaly putting the boat in my boot after each trip to having to have a boat trailer.
Cheers,
Geoff
