Thoughts on Zodiac Pro 7 Man

Does anybody have an experience with these ribs. Are they quite a strong build and can they be used quite happily in coatal waters?

Its the Zodiac Pro 420, 7 man i'm considering.

Zodiac Pro 7 Man

I find mine very versatile. Easy to launch and recover on your own which is important to me. Honda 50hp which is great up to three adults, but is hard work with more than that. I go around Anglesey and it is great for taking up on beaches, fishing and generally having a bit of fun. Dont know where they get the 7 man bit from though! Thoroughly recommend for 2+2 or 3 adults but anymore bodies I think you need to look a bit bigger.
Hope that helps.

Thanks chaps,

Well used it for the 1st time today. Pro 7 with a 40hp Honda 4 stroke with PTT on the rear.

Quite choppy out there today and it handled like a dream.

Found it easy to launch and recover on my own.

Perfect for what i want and did 38mph on my own and 30mph 3 up.
