Hello from sunny Ayrshire

Just came across your site due to being on caravan holiday to Loch Lomond last week I own a kayak and have great fun on it but on the next pitch was a lad with a honwave t32 and Honda 10hp outboard having a brilliant time so I'm now hooked on buying one prefer the t38 but after reading posts on here I've seen a lot of members with bombard 380s for the price I'm inclined to go for honwave as first boat what engine best suits this and would this be adequate for sea and how far out would you be able to go assuming a calm day

Hi Jimucs ..I would imagine its a windy Ayrshire today..so you wont get to try the new boat out.

Welcome to the forum

Think your SIB is a 20hp max ..which is a heavy brute..best ask what the others use in the inflatable section..and perhaps your question will be answered quicker by those that have the same boat..

Gurnard is the man to ask about how far you can go. He's the forum's resident SIB adventurer and teller of poetitic tales...

Start small and work up slowly to the big adventures and pick the weather windows carefully.

How much kayaking experience do you have? I see sibbing as very similar but faster and without the same physical effort.
