Congrats on a good buy. I'll reach my half century this year and have no trouble on my own with my 380 + yam 15 two stroke that i've had for last decade or so- i've found helpfull little fingers get trapped/hurt too easily!. Lucky enough to have option of chucking the lot in the back of my 4x4 Octavia for days out or sticking it on a trailer for longer hols. You"ll get more than enough speed from that combo, on a flat calm i've clocked 19mph - 4 up with the gps on my phone.

Forgot to mention, i got one of those collapsable sack trolleys - 20ish . made ply base and back plate to slip on ,makes moving the bombard valise no harder than trip to Asda and Yam hooks over back plate.

Had my 380 Aerotec & Yam 15 2st for 5 years now & it is one of my boats the wife would not have me sell even if I wanted!

Had it on the water for a week at Easter & now my eldest daughter will help me we can get it from our shed to the water including setting it all up & walking it down the road in 30 mins (I have transom wheels!)

Yamaha F9.9 9.9Hp to F25 25Hp Outboard Engines interesting to note that the 15 and 20 are the same weight, is this the same for 2 strokes ? it`s a massive jump in weight to a 25 though i`d prefer to dead lift 8 stone rather than 12 !! (only 3 years to wait till i have the aid of a teenager lol )....... i agree with not using a trailer as it defeats the portability ....my point being you need a pretty hefty car(boot) to fit it all in and didn`t like the way the wheel arches used to scrape with people sat in the back

I reckon we ought to arrange a Poole bombard 380 meet. Could be fun to get a few together and compare how each have set them up, could be a good learning experience as well as a bit of fun. Anyone up for it?

Dek.

Up for it too ! Though the performance of 25 over a 15 didn't seem much until the boats loaded up with some weight (based on MattH & mine runing side by side).

There is the sibfast cruise ( bt XS400) thread , but if 'bombard' people want to PM me with thier possible available date maybe in June sometime ?

Pete

Hi Guys
collected the aerotec from matth on saturday and it has not stopped raining since !
All looks good and exactly as advertised,thanks Matt.

This is a long shot but anyone got a bravo bs12 hp for sale as I am pretty sure this will save a considerable amount of time setting up. mob. 07841 105670.

Also require a good hand held marine vhf radio.
Cheers.
