Hello from Croatia

Recently I bought 4.5 mt inflatable boat with inflatable keel and wooden panel floor. I hope to find some good advices about boating and maintenance here.

Regards from Zagreb

Hello I saw plenty such boats in Tisno (Murter/Croatia).
Many 4,5 Zodiac Futura Fastroller with 30 HP engines.
I'm jealous that you live in Croatia ... You can use boat almost whole year ...



Did you bought some local/Croatian product ?

Welcome on board. I know nothing but there are plenty people with many good advises.

I was first time in Croatia this year towing RIB but definitely not the last one. Nice country, nice people

Thanks for welcoming Mat, glad you like Croatia, it's a beautifull country.

I spent my vacation in Tisno this year too, but earlier then you, I left on 20th.

The boat I baught was made in Ukraine, it is 1 year old, I will not have a chance to test it untill next year. So, I must be patient

On Polish website it stated that max engine for this inflatable (they call it SIB on this forum) is 35 kW.

On this in English (mentioned by you) Inflatable Motor Keel Boat KM-450 D - Kolibri Inflatable Rowing and Motor Boats it is 35 HP

This boat weight is more than 100 kg.
Even if you go alone not sure if 10 HP be enough to go to the plane.
Which is usually most effective way ...

The best idea is to check it.
But if you think to have some passengers I will invest in 30 HP outboard.

Or 9.9 HP not require licence or vignette in Croatia ?

I have a licence category "B", it is not a problem. Also, boat has a permanent registration. Problem is I don't tow a boat on a trailer. I transport it deflated in my cargo van and if OB is too heavy it is difficult to handle.
