I had never seen them before Ken, although my mate has one he uses on the Thames. Superb little boats I love mine.

Brilliant boats. Must be the most popular rigid small boat for carpers.

Get the one I have mate. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/382878553568

It's a bit more expensive, but it fits pukka. You just have to drill two holes at the back. It's so simple. There's loads of pics on my faceache.

Good info, thanks.

I had a Funyak 2.80 but it was very heavy and cumbersome for 1 person to move (despite the ball wheels) and wouldn't even fit in a LWB Transporter easily!

It's the boat they use on Rainbow, not why I bought it, but I noticed when I was there.


Because it sat in the garden unused I decided to sell it.
I still have a BiC Sportyak 213...but this suffers from the lack of transom

This Funyak wasp looks ideal, and sensibly priced. You've just helped me spend £250!

I've just been looking for transom ideas and found this for £27 posted...I'm sure I could make something to fit the WASP...it's a much easier to work with design than the Sportyak 213 (very wide/rounded sides/back)

Thanks for the heads up on this Tcarper. Picked one up today from Morton boats for £249 + about £50 in diesel to collect. I haven't had it on the water yet, but I'm quite impressed with it up to now. It's primary use is for freeing tethered fish in a very weedy water, to aid this I've added a couple of butt grips in the pre drilled holes at the stern corners to clip a rod and a net pole in. Fitted in the back of my Shogun LWB no problem.

Yes you can mate. They move width ways, and also extend out a long way too as Hitman said. It would not really matter within reason how wide or narrow the boat is.

I have a cheap Intex inflatable from Amazon and the transom for that is good as well and only £26.

Are you ex RMC Jamie who moved to Canada?

It looks like you can Jamie the arms look like they are extendable and also can move to make them wider or narrower 👍

Mark - do the outside arms on the transom move at all? Can you make the angle wider / narrower depending on the boat or are they fixed? I have been thinking of getting one for my inflatable from Ali Express but my mounting attachments seem to have a different placing to most on there. thanks

You’re welcome. Every single angler who has seen that transom on the bank has been super impressed. The quality is very good for the money.

Nice one, many thanks...
Ive seen a few versions that others have made and fitted to Sportyaks - i know the Bic one was never highly rated.
I was contemplating bending some tube and making my own but this looks like a hassle free option (plus im pretty sure id screw it up!)
