What boat is it Andy?

A rib? Or air deck/slat floor?

How long?

This is tiny, but so much fun.

4hp planes it with one adult and toddler, doubtful with two. But great for river dee.

Curious to try our long shaft 6hp merc and see how that goes in Anglesey.

Aha! My thoughts too!!! Before i set off there was canoe seat foam put underneath where it goes over the bonnet. Not a mark. Same under the rowlocks. It's dark grey dense foam that they shape for padding in the seats. Great stuff from a mate that makes canoes.

Plus another strap from the bow eye in to the car. Front, back and two each side meant it didn't move at 70mph for 225miles!
