Zodiac S131

Hi,

Does anyone perchance own or know a friend that might own one of the Series 1 S131 inflatable dinghies. They are black in design with a yellow stripe and bow cover.

I have recently purchased one in excellent condition but without the floor board set or internal inflatable keel tube. I can sort out the inflatable keel and no doubt sort out a floor board set, but it would be most excellent if I could get some exact measurments before I attempt to template.

Zodiac want both my arms and legs for new ones!

Thanks,

Joe

not quite

I used to own a S134, it also had 2 U Shaped aluminium sections that clipped onto the side of middle 3 floorboards if it is any help to you.

Great little boat

Thanks for the tip, I thought this might be the case.

I remember being a lad at the age of 15 going out every morning in the summer, me in my Bonwitco with a 4hp and two lads who I was friends with who both had these inflatables with 9.9hp mercs on. It was almost a daily ritual that these two lads would come over and power turn the most incredible spray, almost rendering me soaked for the rest of the day!!

So when I saw this for sale I instantly remembered what fun I could have this summer. Now 35!!..

Ideal for stealthing around the harbour!!

in my lighter youth i used to kneeboard behind it, it had a 6hp yamaha outboard. it would only do this with 1 person in the boat and 1 on the board but was brilliant fun.

it might struggle a bit now though
