Sorry... for neatness in the image I'd put them all together but when fitted to the boat the fixed slat goes in between the 1st and 2nd boards.

Can anyone reccomend the correct pressure to inflate to for this particular dinghy? David I think it's the mkII that you mentioned in this thread earlier, the one with the 55hp rating. Would it at all be possible to get a copy of your instruction manual for this boat? Obviously I would be more than happy to cover any costs. Thanks prairie tuber I was worried it was going to be pvc it feels quite a bit lighter than our old ex MOD boat, though that has been painted, has oversize tubes, tons of patches and I'm guessing is a thicker material.

Adam,

I can scan/copy my book OK. No need for payment. PM me an address and I'll do it over the next few days. It's about 40 pages close to A5 size.

Thanks David. Received the instruction book, most useful, especially the bit about fitting of the floor. Heading out for maiden voyage this afternoon with tuned outboard. Hopefully we will have a trouble free trip! Pix to follow over the weekend. Cheers

Still havent managed the maiden voyage yet due to funding issues! definately heading out this Friday though. David, I was looking at our floor boards and hoped you may be able to answer a question for me. On the bow board and the first board (the boards either side of the fixed board) how many retaining tongues does each board have and which side are they located on? I think our 1st board may be missing a couple and i wanted to sort it out whilst dry and warm in the house because its probably an easy fix. Many thanks

Adam
