Slim sibs

Wondering if anyone has any experience of the slender sibs by Grand, the Argus or SunSpott do a similar model. They are marked up as inflatable Canoes with a transom and take up to 8 hp, some 5.5m, look a bit unstable. Not the usual inflatable canoes from Seveylor, these may be fairly quick with small engine.

The Kaboat type inflatables?

I though about grabbing one as a tender, til I found this. It's not exactly taxing conditions and the outboard would have been worth well in excess of the sib:-

Yes , that's the sort. Seem to fly with small motors, wondering what market they are trying to appeal to.

I don't know either-I can't see them being a good tender if they're that unstable as I suspect you couldn't leave an outboard on them.

Not seen one before but looking down the y/t video list it shows a few slim ones under various trials/ tests ect ,
Suppose its like everything else ,,,Horses for courses & know its limitations ,, though I dread to think what the outcomes going to be with the totally inexperienced .
