cumbria

i see you have asked to join the scottish sib outing not wanting to dampen your enthusiasm but a 3.2 is a very small boat for such a demanding SIB outing i have the equivalent of a 3.8 SIB and consider it the smallest boat i would use on these adventures just my opinion with the experience of long trips in some challenging conditions.

See this video.



Most of us who are not keeping our sibs on a trailer towed by the car need a way of getting the outfit to the water. If you set it up by the car and load with even just the outboard you won't be able to carry it. Even the sib alone may be too difficult to carry unless a very short distance.

So we will usually have either a launch trolley or transom wheels which can be removed or flipped into the up position once launched. Then you can set the sib up with OB, fuel tank and all your kit to trundle it to the water.

You may wish to think of what happens if you reach a destination where you want to pull the sib out of the water for a lunch or picnic etc. With transom wheels that are flipped up when travelling on the water you can put them down and pull the outfit from the water at a destination beach or slipway.

If at your coast location it gets busy and there is the possibility of having to park and setup some minutes walk from the water transom wheels are a life saver.

The Honwave air floor takes just one specific transom wheel type where you pull a pin out to move them from down to up. Here they are in the up position...

3.2 will do for now but Iíd be surprised if you didnít upgrade the first time you go to sea.

It must be difficult being new and having all of us with our opinions!

Enjoy your sib. Coniston is a great first place to try it. Launch at the bottom car park or the slipway at Coniston.

Enjoy!

Have a look at this thread from three years ago. In my first post there are pictures of me trundling a couple of previous outfits the few mins walk from parking spot where we setup to the slipway.

How far do you move your SIB on transom wheels?

There's no doubt 3.8m was the safe bet advice but don't want Cumbria to think he's bought something unsatisfactory because he hasn't. Our first sib was a 3.1m Zodiac with 9.8hp and we used that for a few years on Scottish west coast holidays... including at times with two adults, 11+13yr old and small dog.

Here just with the girls heading down Loch Caolisport into The Sound of Jura...

Are you thinking this means you don't need wheels... if this is at say a lunch picnic stop what will you then do with the boat regarding waves/tide after you've got out?
