View Full Version : Inflatable boats or very light ones?

04-03-2002, 08:26 AM
hey guys
Anyone know of a place where I can buy an inflatable boat or rubber dinghies with a backboard to mount my motor?
Coz I was thinking of getting a tinny but my stepdad doesn't want to get a trailer so we would have to put the tinny on top of our car on our roofrack and I don't know how we are going to get it off or on for that matter. So that's why i'm looking for an inflatable boat or a very light boat that is easy to transport!

HI Jack,
In regards to finding a Inflatable boat, try surf lifesaving clubs. I am involved in 1 on the sunshine coast and we had one that they were going to sell. They are the Achillies brand with a wooden transem, 3.85mts long ang great fun to drive. Overall wieght of the boat with the floor in and no motor is approx 60-80kg wich two people can handle easily and they can handle up to 30 hp. So give em a try and if you want me to find out if the club I'm in has any for sale, let me know

These IRB's roll up so you may be able to squeeze it in the boot. I checked down the club the other day and they had sold the on that they had. But I'm sure you'll trake a boat down soon.
Good luck,
