that looks like a great boat. One of my friends has a 330m version very similar with the extra seat and we can load up with 2 peoples kits for a couple of nights so I expect you should be ok with that one.

the air floors / decks are great IMO and so much better than metal / wooden slats. They seem to be extremely durable but need to be pumped up to a certain pressure to ensure that they remain their strongest. if you've ever seen an inflatable paddle board then they are the same as those.

edit - I should add that you should be careful with bigger ones too - they weigh a ****ing ton and aren't usually 1 man jobs in getting them in and out of the water without additional wheels being added to them.

Go easy on me, this area is all new. So I am looking to get my first boat; mainly for a Uk water that I would be fishing weekly and having to transport back and forth. Would like an inflatable.

Looking through Bark, Raptor, Zodiac, Fox etc - and the feedback on here I am sort of on route however have a few choices.

I need to have all my gear for 3 days, would an air floor be ok with loading beds, etc.. onto it?

Also confused on the sizing, I know on the shape it may depend, but roughly for a bucket of bait, cool box, bed, bivvy, rod bag and tackle bag - what sort of size you you using? I am thinking I need something 270-290 minimum?

Also seen a few people use a Talamex - I have seen this which seems like a bargain really - would that suit my needs?

I would be using it with a 55lb thrust motor and lifi batteries.

Any help or even pictures of loaded boats of different sizes would be much appreciated
