In my opinion the stringers are not carried far enough forward, and the aluminium floor boards on mine had some very questionable sharp edges that really have no place on an inflatable boat. Engine size - I found the 30 plenty scarry enough on such a light boat. Also given the requirements of a safety boat, I would go for one with hypalon tubes as others have mentioned here. Just my opinion
There you go, Chapter and verse. Open and close! I love it.
That is the end of that. I just love it when someone just hits the buttons.
In this instance we have saved the Rowing club a mistake.
If we keep going, then all mistakes will be ironed out and everyone will learn and the service will get better to all.
Yes Bring it on, lets have the truth... Thank you Ian.
