A girl in Boots asked me if I'd like the ball type deodorant, I told her that I'd rather have the underarm type.

as ribnet members you ought to get together and contact the seller and arange a bulk discount. far better than all bidding on the same item.

I have just purchased a 6.5M Ballistic inflatable and it doesn’t come with the trunks. Is it recommended that you add them? Will I be cutting out enough of the transom to cause any structural harm?

It would be a good idea; they are great for clearing lots of water very quicky. As long as you cut in the right place then you should be fine.

Nice to see another Yank on here - how about posting some pics of your boat - I assume your engines are the Nissan/Tohatsus - supposed to be very good - what do you think of them???

I’m still awaiting for the boat to arrive it’s suppose to ship from the east coast this week! As soon as I get it here and rigged I will post some pictures of it. I had a Nissan/Tohatsu 40hp on my SIB and loved it. It always ran strong and never fowled plugs or hard to start. I can’t wait to try out these TLDI and see the difference.

It seems to be similar to hypalon with two eyelets to fasten them up. i spoke to the guy who sold them and he buys surplus stock, gauges etc . and found
loads of these trunks in the package. hes allso selling alli A frames on Ebay.

re youre transom excavations. does the boat have no means of losing any deck water at all!. Does it not already have self bailers fitted ?

If you do fit these trunks be aware that the hole you cut needs to be sealed, with an epoxy sealer and then siliconed in with some silicone spread along the hole in the transom plus the flanges on both sides of the deck.

Do not compromise the transom join by drilling too close to the bottom of deck on the inside of the transon

welcome by the way
