Stingray Marine

Have searched the forum, no results.

Has anyone any knowledge, experience or comments on inflatables from Stingray Marine in S.A., in particular this model http://www.stingraymarine.com/?Task=...SE+INFLATABLE?

Interested in views on inflatables with highjackers.

Reason for asking; one has come up for sale with a Tohatsu 40hp 2 stroke, and I am looking for an inflatable to replace a RIB, so I can stay on the water!

Thanks in advance,

Mark.

I think it refers to what Zodiac owners call speed-tubes (the small-diameter pontoons on the bottom).

I have seen a Stringray RIB with a fiberglass catamaran hull. It seemed to be well put together. Highjackers are similar to zodiac's speed tubes, but much larger, and are used without a central V-keel to create a tunnell hull. This makes for a much faster, better handling boat over conventional SIBs. These SIB designs did originated from South Africa.

If you search "cat hull", "cat-hull", "tunnel hull", "Ceasar surfcat", "Gemini Surf", or "Gemini Dive" you should come across alot of threads on these types of boats.

Here is a link to a search of " cat hull"

A while back i was looking at buying one of there boats, I looked everywhere and couldnt find out any info about them. I had a chance to buy their tunnel hull inflatable boat for what I thought was a great price but was worried about the lack of info about them. Look up my other posts, I berlieve i asked the same question on here befopre and got a little info. found out they make some very nice comercial boats but was still a bit worried. looking back now i wish i had bought the boat but because it was not hypalon I decided against it, good luck
