What do you use your sib for?

I use my Zodiac to reach those beachy coves in Cornwall that you cant get to on foot meaning you get your own private beach (bliss). What do you use yours for?

I use mine for similar activities, beach hopping, playing in the surf and bombing around.

I love being able to launch from beaches and car parks that you otherwise couldn't launch from and being able to beach the boat and just wheel it back to the water later.

Within 5 minutes of launching I can be over decent ground un-accessible from land, and away from the lager drinking tinsel tossers.

I use it to cruise up and down lochs, lakes and inland waters taking photographs or fishing (world's worst). I have an electric motor on it so peace and quiet guaranteed and access to places you otherwise would not see possible. Its a 3D super lightweight tender so it can be launched from anywhere.....brilliant

Mine's get used for a varied bag of sea and freshwater fishing.
Taking the wife and kids for beach picnics / BBQS.
Sightseeing around the Scottish coast and sea lochs.
Cruiding the Cumbria Lakes.
Camping on small Scottish Islands and on Sea Loch beaches etc.
It's used as a camping trailer also with everything from BBQs to beer and bikes being carried in it when exploring .
It's also a handy storage container for its own associated bric a brac - as it sits out all year on the trailer covered by a tarp.
This greatly assists in de cluttering the garage and assists in quick get aways.
All in all a very versatile lump of PVC.

Some local river and (90mls away) coastal use through the year for family exploring but greatest pleasure on our Scottish holidays where.. for example... you can arrive near a slip in the car and within 30mins of easy assembly be out to explore places like this...
