Tohatsu 2.9 SIB

Anyone own or have heard anything bad about this SIB's? I would use a Tohatsu 9.8 2 stroke to power it.

Any suggestions of other makes, needs to be 2.9, inflatable floor not slatted or Ali which would come in at the 600 area. Looked at Honwave but too expensive for me.

Thanks Richard

I have a Tohatsu branded boat- 4.2m. Seems to be fairly well made, no issues with it and have used it for three seasons on rivers and the Solent.

We have owned an airfloor 3m Tohatsu with a 5hp (Tohatsu) outboard since about 2005 - although it's now largely used as a tender to the RIB when we are on a remote mooring. We have been very pleased - although perhaps unsurprisingly it will not get on the plane with more than 1 adult and 1 teenager with a 5hp!

10 Hp should do it then I guess. I have a 2.7m Tidel wave rib in Dartmouth (Dittisham) and that goes well, just dont fit in the car!! Just wanted another one for messing around on the Thames where I used to keep my current 6m Rib.
