Here's the sizes:

Got an electric pump yet? Or you still in the garden telling the kids to speed up with the foot pump?

Thanks for the info, mine has the futura speed tubes underneath so I'm a bit puzzled on how to support it?

Haha, I did buy an electric pump at one point but it burned out almost instantly. Now I use the rapid inflation system. A standard dive tank with a first stage regulator, high pressure hose, and a milled aluminum adaptor. Instantly tops it off in seconds!

Mine also does as well. It's the FC470. I've been out of town for two months so my memory wasn't clear. The bunks go just inside of those. It rides up onto them like rails. Sits perfectly flush.

Great, just been looking at your pics again and I see what you mean. Luckily I have some hardwood decking that I could carpet and use as bunks

Thanks again for the advice, I'll keep you posted

Well done Whisper, tell us more! My FC thread has pics on how I supported my tubes etc. Its the speed tubes that make it difficult to use a standard trailer.


If you really wanted a dogs danglies trailer, I could be persuaded to part with mine and build another! Draws the crowds in on the slipway this one!

She's not brand new but a 2012 She has a slatted roll up floor, all the original docs, spare valves, foot pump, clamseal thing and repair kit etc even the carry bag

I still have the Tohatsu short shaft TDLI 50HP which has done about 20 hours, it has PTT and elec start I also have a very powerful gel battery in a peli case. All thanks to Rob at Blackdog Marine (Turbodiesel on here).

Also got 2 x brand new Zodiac fuel bladders and I also picked up a special forces dry bag rucksack thing which is built like a dry suit

I've been collecting these for quite some time in anticipation of the right FC470

You have PM re your trailer
