Well pleased with new inflatable
,,, 380 bombard with 15hp Mercury. Have gone from Sunsport 270 vair floor rated for 8hp but used 15hp to the bombard 380. Engine cover is Mariner 8hp but really Merc 15
Sunsport was fine for general days out with me, miss and daughter. But a wild camp for four days in Scotland earlier this year, me and my mate run out of space for gear, extra fuel, food, beer,,,, so had to get a bigger boat after the trip.
Used so far, North Wales, Loch Lomond and the other week end Lake Windermere.
Boat needed bits doing to it, like 2 of the straps regluing that hold the floor in and the only patch on the tube redoing,,,, no leaks on the floor. No seat came with the boat,,, soon made one of them. Using 1" piece of timber under transom clamps to lift engine to reduce the water problems.
Had a set of wheels made after having to carry the boat every time we launched at Loch Lomond. Used the wheels at Windermere on my own,,,, work a treat
Have got the Zodiac bar steering that fits to the boat, was going to try and fit to the Sunsport,,, never got round to it. But the cable is to short 7'. Any one know what size it should be please.
Hope to use again on Windermere beginning of November.
