Not Another Aerotec Owner!
Yes I'm afraid so.
Many thanks to Peter on here (Boats&Outboards) for finding it for me. Great service. I asked on the offchance if he knew of one for sale, which he did. He checked it out, bought it and then sent it to me from Cornwall.
So if you are after a rib/sib/engine etc maybe he might be able to help. Good Aerotecs are hard to come by or expensive as I am sure those of you looking for one know. This one looks like a good un. Not the cheapest but as others have found, if it's cheap there is a reason for it! Having said that it has been blown up for about 4 hours and it appears to be airtight!
Bit worried about these in general now though as others appear to be having lots of problems with the floors. I'm sure they are in the minority and generally the Aerotecs are robust for what they are used for. Sure I will have many questions in the coming days and weeks. Just for now though-
The floors appear to leak around the area they touch the transom. I assume it is due to them rubbing against each other. Would anyone recommend that a barrier is put here such as foam etc? Or just leave it as something else not intended to be there may cause issues?
Can't wait to use it but the forcast up north is for wind and rain. OK for me but the rest of the team might not be so keen.
