Honwave T32ie - T38ie wanted

Hi, I'm after a second hand Honwave T32 or T38 with the air-v hull.
If you have, know someone who has, or know a dealer who deals with second hand ones, I'd appreciate a shout. Preferably not too far from S.W. England.
Cheers.

Yes, at the time they didn't have any second hand ones.

I found one on eBay, so sorted now thanks.

T32

Ive owned both and the T38 is a lot bigger in every dimension to the T32. Also be prepared for the “walking” floor and the floor extension which makes it a pain to use launching wheels.
I’d go with a Zodiac air floor Activ-V.

whats the walking floor I was thinking of a t32 I have just tried a aerotec 380 but with a 15hp mercury it felt very underpowered and with 2 15 stone guys on board would only drop onto the plane if one sat right on the bow and although very stable it didn't feel like it was doing much over 12 mph tbh I was quite unimpressed

Blimey, if you were unimpressed with an Aerotec (?!) then you will not think much of a 'flat' (slightly undulating underway) floor Zodiac, Honwave or any other regular SIB in comparison.

Never felt my Aerotec is underpowered with a 15 but we are only 15 stone total, top speed is 19 kts (22 mph). A 25 would be the way to go if you load it up.

no I liked the aerotec it was just so slow with a 15 on it I have just swapped a yam 25 for the 15 because the 25 was too heavy for me to be lifting in and out of my car back seat. stuff was getting damaged the 15 is nice and light and I can easily manage it .but on an aerotec it took ages to get on the plane and flat out I doubt very much if I was doing 22mph so I was thinking that a lighter sib like a honwave t32 would be more suitable to the 15hp

But there's only a few kilos in it, it won't make any difference in a positive way...

Are you sure your 15 was performing right? What was the RPM at WOT?
