hi... so I got my Plastimo P200
£142 from Ebay ..
not the best of pics.
Its CE - C category rated ... although not sure I fancy testing those limits.
More importantly - ITS YELLOW!
and it feels very well put together. A very solid Transom arrangement.
Another first...when deflated it fits back into its valise - amazing ... who would have thought. That valise is 1 metre by about 40cm x 30 cm and it should tuck under my console although not tried that yet.
Think its going to be fine for what I want. Expecially chuffed as they cost so much new - £300. I do see the odd gray coloured one come up from time to time.

Original and still the best. With slatted floor - it comes to around 20kg. It's now over 20 years old and doesn't have a patch. Avon Redcrest Inflatable Dinghy | eBay UK
The outboard bracket costs over £90.

Back to the drawing board as obviously the Wetline replacement would be just as big and heavy so, looked around and bought a Seago Ranger 2.4m which turned up today. I had asked about the airdeck version and paid the extra to get this after having them check with the factory on whether the airdeck was removeable or not. (I specifically didn't want a removeable version but one that produces a modicum of keel by being fixed in along the keel)
The floor is completely removeable and is exactly what I didn't want and checked for before ordering!
This will have to go back now so two to collect for the courier tomorrow for return.
Now the next version is the Seago Ranger 2.4m with slatted deck but at least I get some money back!
Third time lucky!
I'm in the same pickle at the moment. They want to sell me a waveco instead of a wetline eco and say they are identical in spec and even from the same factory but reading the above post makes me worried. Do you know for sure the waveco is a cheap copy of a wetline?
