Proud New SIB Owner

I have today become the proud owner of a nice new SIB.

After much deliberation I have chosen the Yamaha Yam 280Sti with a 4HP 4 Stroke Outboard. This model has the air mat flor, which makes for a much easier time puting it away and stowing it. It weighs a mere 31Kg with oars, pump etc. The engine is only a little over 20Kg.

This will give me the opportunity to keep it in the boot and launch whenever I get the opportunity for a litle time on the water, or take it with me In Topaz when we go down to the channel Islands etc where we need to anchor off.

It also gives me the chance to be part of the SIB Fleet for those little adventures that may come along.

Now there's a challenge if ever I heard one. I think the SIB lot should all get together and prove him wrong! A diesel powered SIB, should be good for a laugh.

Just get one of the smaller Diesel Outboards, and the New Quicksilver Airdeck with the drop cones on it to take the extra weight - bingo

(Knowing Mike though he would till want to carry a spare!)
