Not for the argument but just the fact...

2.80 Ribeye alloy hull at 45kg is 2kg more than the 1m longer 3.80 Aerotec air floor at 43kg.

You must have mis read the specs as the ribeye is ts 280 we have is 35kg ,10 kg lighter than the excell we had previously
& I'd be very surprised if a bombard is only 45kg as my pal's felt way heavier than our excell when we had them side by side
Everyone else's 3.8 boats are around 60-70 kgs but maybe the newer aerotec is lighter built than the earlier models

Ahh fair point, have a contact with a 280 but it's the double skin TS model that weighs 45kg... didn't know until I looked just now they had the lighter single skin at 35kg.

Sill a fair comparison though as I see the single skin TL310 is exactly the same weight as the longer Aerotec.

I've liked those smaller alloy floor ribs for a while since I chatted to a couple at the pontoon with one as a tender (a Highfield I think) and had a good look at it.

Once you get to the 3m-4m sizes for me it's a simple matter... do you want to use a trailer... yes, then get a RIB... if not... get a SIB.

Does anyone know how the consoles are usually attached to these aluminium decks?
