Personally, the next boat I'll be getting will be something around an 11ft rigid. Had my inflatable a good few years and it's on its last legs now so will invest in a decent fibre glass if I can. If not plastic but these can't be repaired as easy but do tend to last a while

Really depends fully on how deep your pockets are, where you fish and how often

Can I warn against anything less than 2 metres in length. I bought one this size, but it is a pain to row as there just isn't the room to stretch out your legs to avoid the oars.

I only got it as you didn't need a licence for a boat under 2 metres in Mequinenza, but they changed the rules and I still needed to get it registered.

If you look around there are carpy green boats available from non carp suppliers in the UK. I can't remember where I got mine from at the moment. It has the good air deck, but the transom isn't square to the sides of the dinghy. As I don't use an outboard this wasn't an issue for me, although 5km a day rowing to put the baits out is hardly a holiday.

It may never get used again as I am done with Meq now, and I don't think it is enough boat for the Po.

Bic 245. have wheels on them so can be used by one person. light enough to put on the roof of a car should you need too. Not the cheapest (think 600 odd new). the odd one comes up on ebay and will go for 450 ish.

good boat that was last years

Breathing life back into this post.

I never got an inflatable, Iíve just got a syndicate ticket where I can use boats, due to time and the option to leave them onsite I think Iím leaning more towards getting a rigid boat now.

I have looked online but canít find too much as I donít really know what Iím looking for, I found a BIC on the tackle box, seemed quite expensive once you include shipping, Decathalon do a fun yak 250 which to me looks ok. Would have preferred to get something second hand in fairness but eBay doesnít seem to have much. Or Iím just not searching for the right criteria.

Do people think a 250 would be big enough for 1 person, dog (Labrador) all the gear for a weekend?

What are you lot using?

After a bit of researching whilst fishing I have gone and purchased the Talamex Aqualine 230 slotted,it got good reviews and load capacity,the weight is only 18.8 kilos and cost £425.

So time will tell if itís good but it a damm sight cheaper and lighter than the raptor boats 👍

I know it's not an inflatable/dinghy but I have a foldable boat for more than 15 years and I can't recommend it more, it's always in good conditions just a bit faded in colour.

With it I fished in estate lakes as well as in great expanse of waters like the mighty Bolsena but more than other I fished Cassien with it, almost everytime on my own. I tie the boat on the car roof like a surfboard, it take 5 min. to put the seats up, it can take load of tackle and is perfect for travel in search for swims with all the stuff. It's easy and fast to row as well as with an electric motor more than an inflatable.

Mine is an Italian model no more on the market but there's a German model (a lot of German carp angler that fish cassien have one) and a dutch model (if the memory serve me right it's called "porta bote")

Mines an ally floor..
Bit more or a p.i.t.a. to setup but much sturdier/stronger than air deck I would imagine

Can't remember the make of mine of the top of my head, but if you actually look into carefully, all these "carpy" inflatables are all made from the same factory in China..
I was in contact with them before I bought mine, it just worked out cheaper to just buy one that was already here due to shipping and import fees etc..

Yeah I suppose 8 years ain't bad going, and I've reglued it all again, it should hold up for a few more hopefully

And as has been suggested, the proper Zodiac's are much better quality

I was hoping people would come on here and reinforce what I thought I already knew, carp branded boats offer nothing more than cheaper alternatives other than a nice paint job. With this in mind I know that I can look for something down my local boat yard with confidence that I wonít need to buy again in a few years time which was my worry.

I know from buying carp clothing that itís just over priced rubbish and army surplus is the way forward, I was fairly confident that boats would be the same but needed to check, Iím happy I did though as an air deck seems to be the way forward and I wouldnít have known that before. Even though I owned an air deck previously I presumed that a rigid base would be better
