My boat

< Previous page^Personal^Next page >

This is our second inflatable boat, which my father bought at some point to replace the original Brigant, with my Johnson MQ-14E motor.

I had to repair the boat last year because some mice had decided to tunnel through the rubber. Given its age (1985; the ordinary lifespan being ca. 15 years!), it is a bit of an ordeal to get Hypalon glue ‘at the last minute’, so we had to do without the boat. Fortunately, the repair went well, and the boat held its pressure for three days running—a few hours is considered acceptable!

Here are the specs:

I have a sail kit for it also. But trying that is a project for next year!
