A warm hello to the community

Hello guys

I live in Aberdeen and I have recently purchased an inflatable boat and an outboard:

- Mercury - Quicksilver - 2.5m airdeck
- 4 stroke Tohatsu 5Hp

Now I'm looking to get some launching wheels as was a real nightmare without it.

Wish you all the best lads and happy sailing.

Hi Manus..welcome to the forum from me too.

Like yourself I enjoy small inflatables fact of the many boats I have had ..this one in the photo is the boat that has given me most pleasure at well as value for money

It was a wee Seago slat floor with a 3.3 mariner. I was skint after a divorce and its all I could afford at that time. It let me get on the water and I used it for over 10 years all around the Scottish west coast.

Enjoy your new outfit ..its a great pastime .. being on the water and doing your own thing gives life long precious memories.
