Codders; we've tried pushing, pulling, lifting, even tried a electric winch(takes too long) it's amazing how heavy a small boat becomes when you're trying to get it up a steep incline, especially when the pebbles fall away from under your feet

I spoke to a local dealer earlier who said he could offer me either boat with a 10% discount from the tail end of the boat show. I'm pretty sold on the QS 340 sport, he said he could do one for 650 inc vat which sounds pretty good to me, does that sound like a good price?

Yes it does but I had mine with wheels and engine - used 3 times with receipts for 1,200 - still don't believe it the engine is worth far more on it's own!!!

It does, but it might be worth checking with malthouse who is a trade member here as he does some good prices on Quicksilver boats.

Cheers for the mention John.

650.00 for the 3.4m Sport is a very good price indeed, so long as it includes delivery and vat.



If it does not, come back to me and we can talk turkey.

Cheers Malthouse

As it's alocal dealer delivery shouldn't be a issue and I'm fairly sure it includes VAT.

If not, Turkey we will talk, with all the trimmings

Getting on the plane was easy for this combo, (standard prop) even with 4 adults and as a guess could do 24knts?. It was to heavy to lift and carry by one bloke and his wife which I need to be able to do.

The price you were quoted is a good one, the QS I had was very well made much better than the wetline and that is smaller, not as well made and around that price.

There was me believing the build quality on a Zodiac didn't come much better, certainly in the smaller RIB/SIB market.

Is it possible you just had a Friday afternoon special, Andyboy?

Or has anyone else had problems with Zodiac build quality?

Why not get the QS 3.4 air deck & also buy the solid floor for when you go out with the boys & want it stiffer
I always wanted a QS 3.4 air deck with a Yamie 15 hp 2s but ended up with a Bombard 3.8 Airotec which has proved great!
For me I wanted light wight over stiffens as I have to cart it around on my Jack Jones & mine weighs in at 77kg boat & Yamie 15 hp engine!
How about this http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F170134 & get the wooden floor to go in it!

Excellent idea Nick! In my case, I could use the airdeck for the Thames, where it's calm and I'd be launching for the day, and the stiff deck for Salcombe, where it gets choppier and I'd keep it in the water for a couple of weeks or so.

Next question - what is the largest SIB you can buy where you can use an air deck and a hard deck?

3.4 would be a bit small for me, but does your Bombard 3.8 take a hard deck also?

No it dose not come with a hard floor but I really do not think it needs it!
Both my brother in laws have 3.8m with hard floor & the only difference is they need a 25hp to keep up with me in my 3.8 with a 15hp
& then it is bumpy they get a hard & uncomfortable ride as the floor hurts your bum!
