I have decided to get back into the sport after a 10+ year Hiatus.
I grew up with inflatables we had a a few Zodiac's while growing up, many of my fondest memories as a kid are from those weekends on the lake.
When researching what boat to pick up I started looking at Zodiacs but it seems their reliability and quality is not so stellar any more (on their smaller boats at least)... So after doing some research and talking to several local dealers I placed an order on an:
2014 Achilles SPD 330E
It is a Hypalon Boat and was somewhat pricier but it sounds like if taken care of it should easily be the last boat I have to buy...
Anyways, the dealer didn't have one in stock, so it should be arriving later this week. Very excited to pick it up.
Still have not decided on an engine yet though... will probably make a new thread for that in the appropriate section...
Look forward to sharing pictures when my setup arrives and learning from other members!
