LOL! No, I will run it for a season I think next year to give it a fair go - had some interest by PM already though....

Or a Honwave 3.8ie same sort of v-shaped airfloor - certainly no problem planing with 4 big adults and a Honda 20hp - but much 'bouncier' than an equivalent size rib. On the other hand easily handled and launched single handed - even without a winch - especially if you use transom wheels. BUt the packing up inflating/deflating is a pain.

Thanks for all the imput. On these two boats (Bomard and Honwave) is the actual floor that you stand on inflatable too?? Guessing most SIBs have 'solid' wooden or aluminium floors...this being so is the inflatable floor like walking on a very pumped up lilo??!

Yes the actual floor you stand on is inflatable and yes you feel some motion from the water beneath - but the actual floor is high pressure compared to the tubes - hence the need (in my view) for a high pressure electric pump such as the Bravo BST - so not really like walking on a lilo - and you don't do much walking on a SIB anyway! Note also that the floor is V shaped and not flat.

Thanks Longjohn! Are there any out there with a solid (wood/alu flat) floor and any sort of an inflatable V keel or similar?
