Thats a Wetline (step above Waveline),generic brand thats trying to move above the rest. They actually are quite good, they do a 265 'V' airfloor which is very similar to the Honwave, great sib.

Although I don't like slatted floors (they don't plane, the slats break, heavier than an airfloor etc) at that price its a no brainer. As a tender with a low powered engine they are fine, but rubbish to row.

Thanks landlocked, I will be using a Tohatsu 3.5 four stroke which I have had for 2 years and its never been used, so I thought maybe a sib would be a good excuse to make good use of it.

keep an eye on Ebay, you occasionally see used airfloors, stick one of those in and it will transform it.

As long as you understand the limitations of that kind of floor, its a seriously cheap and decently made small sib.

The 3.5 will be perfect for the boat, light and easy to transport.

Thanks guys, I think I will go for this one but before I click on the buy now button, I will just hang fire for a while to see if anymore positive comments are posted first.

Ask yourself if you will be happy with the limitations of the slat floor over time. I'm thinking those are:
  • Have to mind where you step/sit. Maybe can't sit on the floor?
  • Poor tracking under tow
  • Poor planing performance

If OK with the above, then it's a nice wee SIB
