Hello From Colorado


I am from Colorado. I just purchased Zodiac F470 from California. I am using that boat for my new sport called spearfishing. I loved it.

I asked questions from my other forum (Spearboard) and someone suggested me to use this forum to get answers from here. I hope this forum offers the information and resources I look for.

Only two things I am not happy about it are:

1) It has leak from seams. The inflatable specialist in Colorado who works on raft boats said that they have to cut my boat up and fix the leaks then sew them together. Is it true?

2) When I gassed to the max (my boat has 50 hp rebuilt Evinrude), the water come in my boat by going over behind the outboard into inside of the boat. So I have to go a bit slower to prevent that, but I want to go its max without that issue. I have no idea how to prevent that. Any ideas?

Thank you,

You may want to move the questions to specific sub forums and add some pictures!
