Never see them then two turn up: Cheap n cheerful https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kayaks-jet-skis/zodiac-futura-fast-roller/1162877358 or the ultimate package https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kayaks-jet-skis/zodiac-futura-mk-2-c-fastroller/1160341430

I'm still waiting for a second hand mk3 fastroller to turn up, haven't seen one on the market for ages though.

I should point out that I wasn't recommending it to anyone - just highlighting that it was for sale. What do you pair think it will sell for/be worth once a handy SIBnetter repairs it?

>>> once a handy SIBnetter repairs it?

Interesting possibility but worrying too. What could have caused much of the transom to PVC joint to fail like that supposedly at under 7yrs old .. and what sort of DIY glue was used because cleaning that up will be a hassle?

Hard to say - time is money (if a 'pro' does it)?!

At the end of the day these rubber bathtubs we all float about in are a few sheets of cheapo PVC shapes glued [after-a-fashion-kind-of reasonably-well] to a lump of cheap old ply.*

So, easy to fix if a faff re' weather/prep time etc.

*Having said that the Zodiac/Bombard HP floor part of these boats is a pretty clever design.

Cheapest place I can find Honwave boats from is here:

Honwave T32-IE2 inlfatable

813 for a T32, but you could argue the ebay one comes with wheels. Might be worth a "best offer".

That's where I bought my Honwave package and Fenlander just bought his Suzuki OBM... I think they're very decent chaps.
