Honwave T32

Hi All,

Recently purchased a Honwave T32 with a Honda 20HP engine.

I am using this for mainly fishing and i am very impressed so far!

Ive noticed other RIB's have a solid floor, but my floor is inflatable. I dont see this as a major issue, but because ive previously had a quicksilver 500 boat (not a RIB) I would feel more confident if my floor was a solid material.

Is there such a thing for my RIB?

Many thanks
Nick

Hi I have just sold my Honwave 3.8 with a Honda 20. It was a great boat which I had for 4 years. I was paranoid about having a puncture so I bought 2.5m of marine grade soft but thick matting which I cut to fit and using heavy duty Velcro I stuck it in place which worked well in all conditions. I have pit a picture of the flooring below.

I have a Yam 280 sti, this boat has a high pressure inflatable floor like your boat.
I use my boat for Bass fishing. I punctured the floor one time, Turned out that there was a sharp pebble stuck in the cleat of my waders. Adamn's idea seems great. Where would I find some of this matting?

Hi I got the flooring from a local but fairly large marine/hardware/garden/ everything shop in Pool Cornwall called McSalvers. I believe they have a web site but the matting should be available with a search.
