HI Trevor. I do have an Bombard AX3 with a slatted floor that I am considering getting rid of as it is now SIB/ RIB no 4 !
I know all the history ( I bought it from new in late 2003 , a mate used it for the last 18 months to his cruiser). Got the oars & an inflatable seat, bag etc) I'll try & get some pics over to you in the next few days - but may be Sunday before I can get to it properly).
Have a look at : http://www.bombard.com/en/tenders/?ax
Used to run a 3.5 on it & it would plane with my 14 st in it with that ! And have run a 5 hp on it with no problems !
No idea at all of its value !
