An excellent boat
About a month ago I bought a 4,2 m Gemini GRX from P Lemmer. A fully inflatable boat with a plywood floor, solid closed transom and under water speed tubes. (The same under water profile as a Zap Cat) buit by Gemini in S Africa the build quality is excellent and every detail is built to last. I purchased a second hand 30 HP Mariner, 2 cylinder that I run on the back giving a very good turn of speed.
The boat performs superbly, is great fun, stable and can be packed into the back of the car.
For £4,000 ish new, inc engine you are on the water in a boat that in many circumstances can out perform a RIB of similar size.
I have driven the Zodiac Futura, its nearest rival in the market and they dont even compare.
I use it for diving, sking, kneeboarding (In the surf) and messing about in rediculously harsh conditions, when everyone else is of the water. I took it out with a mate (You need a crew up front when the breeze is on) in the bay this weekend when that low presure came through with a good force 8 with constant 9 gusts and we were fine if perhaps a little damp.
I have fliped it a couple of times, only once by accident. On my own I can flip it, right it on my own clear the engine and have it restarted and under way in under 10 min.
If anyone is thinking of purchasing a simmilar craft I can recomend this one with no hesitation.
P.S it was the red and yellow boat at the SofC departure.
