I bought my SIB from Boatmart. It is on the internet and you can buy a copy of the magazine from the newsagents.

The rule is:

Never buy a boat you cant roll up!

Sorry Keith not worked out how to quote nicely!

Well talking of rolling boats up my Zodiac 5.85 will roll up and with floor boards fit in a volvo estate I think does that make it a Big Inflatable Boat?
Easier on a trailer though - a lot less puff to inflate it
If any one is looking for a BIB I could be open to offers

If it goes in the back of a car, then it counts.

Light and conveinent SIB

Jelly,
You and I both know that your SIB will kill a medium sized van let alone a volvo. Its a 2-3-4 man lift at least.
Not exactly convienent to pop down the beach

Its built tougher than most ribs and will certainly take more punnishment!

You jest - your camper van survived
I never claimed it was small and gentile
the inflatable equivalent of brick out house, with astetics to match.
I'm sure it would fit in a large estate any way, where were you when it was time to move it off the water anyway!

Well it definately seems that 2nd hand is the way to go, just been looking at the prices for new Quicksilver SIBs
If I had the money, I'd be going for the airdeck 340, looks nice.

So now it's a case of searching for a second hand boat. Boatmart doesn't seem to have much on offer on it's website in the way of SIBs currently, nor does BoatsandOutboards.co.uk. Anyone got any other ideas? Or does anyone have a SIB they're willing to sell

It's that time of year when all the IP engineers are puttng their boats away for the winter. So you can pick up a bargain. to get the best deal you have to be proactive

put an add on this website, boats and outboards, hot ribs, rib int if it's free. {aul glatzels website might have a wanted section

contact all the local dive clubs, training clubs and especially yacht clubs as they use these for tenders and tend to swap them out for bigger ones.

All the yacht clubs have notice boards etc.

Additionally you could place an advert in your local free ads, under boats wanted

I presumed you looked in the lineage ads in Boat mart as they usually are a few sibs in the free classified section. Do you want us to Scan the papers down here for you
