Nicely put together report. The stainless bolt and nylon wing nut would be good, I hope they will turn up in the UK or perhaps you really nice guys in the US could send me one for my 330.

I'm not a big fan of glued seam PVC boats, but the concept is innovative to say the least.

I will say that I am intrigued by these boats, a 106 lb dry weight for a 360cm rigid hull inflatable is impressive seeing as how the Zodiac 360 air floor isn't even 10 lbs lighter. Though at $3000+ a piece these should be made out of hypalon.

Do these come with storage bags? Are they any faster compared to their non rigid PVC bottom counterparts with the same HP motor?

It does come with a bag
I agree with you about the price.

In fact you can get a Zodiac/Avon/Achilles 310 with a folding transom and Hyperlon fabric for less than $3000
PVC under $2000

The other thing that concerns me about the Fboat/Winboat is that in North America there doesn't appear to be a decent dealer network, and as of right now. Nobody will work on the boat.
One would hope that the tubes are replaceable. If not the Fboat/Winboat become a questionable buy for people in a warm climate.
PVC just won't hold up

You can go to the Winboat web site and down load the literature. They list the 360 as 28 mph with a Suzuki 15 hp motor.
