Yep welcome Jake.

Nice outfit, I know 20hp gives that bit more oomph on a SIB 3.5m and above... if you are OK to lug it about. They are just over my comfort limit though.

I really like the Honwave SIBs... how do you get on with your air floor... any flexing at speed?

Welcome to RIBnet

Health to enjoy

Always make sure you always fully inflate it as per handbook - it will start to "fold up" if you don't.

Hi again ;have noticed floor bulging a little bit just foreward of transom as discussed on here but does not seem to make any differance to speed handling,both times out was in a slight chop and well impressed with boat.had to mess about with engine trim ending up on third set of holes out from transom seems pretty good comes up on plane well and able to shut down while still holding plane well overall really pleased
