Past and present

Just revisiting our past.
Brilliant times with this SIB.
Got the bug to get her out.
So I have.

They do represent tremendous bang for buck when one's children are at the right sort of age.

You can get we'll set up for a few Łk and then have repeated low cost days out for several years before selling the kit on and getting a reasonable percentage of your initial spending back.

Is that a Zodiac 360 Fastroller with the high pressure floor and connected high pressure keel? I had a couple of those 10+ years ago. Very light to handle shoreside and great performance with a 15hp.

You've done well to avoid mice damage if stored so long in a rural environment.

Here is ours 11yrs ago powered by a Mariner 15hp 2-stroke.

Totally agree.
3 grand spent on everything.
Had the time of our lives.
Out at sea for Mackerel. Best BBQ in the world.
16 years on still going
Great investment

I wondered if it was that but didn’t they still have (proper!) pointy tube ends not blunt 16 years ago?

That crossed my mind Max also in relation to the plastic locker thingy inserted into the front tube. But I don't know the exact intro date of that particular model. I do know that it hadn't been introduced 20yrs ago from the brochure I have as the 340 without the storage pot we both had was the biggest Cadet Fastroller back then.. and as above it did exist 11yrs ago when I had mine.

No doubt October will put us out of our geek SIB ID misery soon.

The last four digits of the serial number on the outside of the transom indicate age. But it's your business not ours to pry... just two detail nerds swapping banter. He's obsessed with pointy cones you see, if red even keener. More speed apparently.

Ha! I loved that 340 David, super light and a classic look. I'd like one again TBH. But out today for the first time in nearly two years - from Rye harbour into the shortest wave frequency I think I've ever seen (F4 wind over tide) and the Aerotec lapped it up (my joints not so well) - I'd quite forgotten how capable they were for wave jumping fun - hmmm, maybe not quite time to sell up yet...

PVC was the standard and Hypalon a very very expensive upgrade almost never seen.

Usually just a bit of grit or similar... pop it out and clean is the first option.
