Welcome AeroAlex. The Aerotec enjoys good support on here from the perspective of experiences, different uses, mods and outboards most suited to them etc.

Yours must be nicely nippy with that 25hp. Had the outfit long?

yes she shifts along.had it a while probably about 6 years or so. best time was had in the south of france with it. i spent nearly a month taking it out everyday it was spectacular.

being out the game for a while i have just done some research and come across the bravo b12?!..i have to have 1 i think it will make inflating so much easier and quicker. especially with it having the capability to get the floor to pressure. always been bitter sweet with the air floor.its brilliant but getting it to pressure can be a pain sometimes

Indeed.

Like you our best use is on our two week holiday... in Scotland where we too have it ready to use every day... whereas our normal use at the most local coastal site is a fairly intensive day out with 180mls in the car.

I use the Bravo digital and wouldn't be without it but do use the footpump from time to time to keep the noise down... the Bravo is like a machine gun once it kicks into HP mode. Mine's been fine over about 3yrs of use but across the forum they haven't been that reliable.

Well no intention to tease but... in my garage loft... but it belogs to my boat.

The way we use the Aerotec the bow bag gets in the way so never use it. But we bought the boat new last year and I'm a bit OCD with keeping stuff in good condition and as supplied new for any possible future resale. So sorry not for sale. They do come up from time to time around 50-60 in decent used condition.
