    Pretty impressive what the boats can do with a little bit of hp! Makes the higher tubes look pretty practical...is it June yet?!

    What is the purpose of the top tube? Is it just extra inflation?

    Just more free board, splash protection, gets the cover higher for more gear, also gets the oar locks higher up and a litter further out putting them in a better position

    Thanks. I am going to give these a serious look. Been watching their FB page with the videos and what not.

    How much do those boats weigh? And what are the dimensions when deflated/rolled up for transport? Thanks!

    They come in a duffel bag, 2 people can easily manage it.
    The 13 1/2 weighs in at 125#.

    Glad to see this thread and this info. Really interested in these inflatables with tunnels and jets. There is another good thread on this topic on mean chicken- Zodiac hulls with jets: http://meanchicken.net/webmain/forum...?f=109&t=15113

    I would love to hear feedback on how these boats perform. Any one received one yet?

    I saw some talk on Tohatsu and Mercury jets. I always thought Evinrude Etec would be a great way to go. Two stroke power/torque and lighter weight.

    Any info on price? I see on the website a Solar 380 is 72,500 Rubles so about $1,200 USD

    These boats seem to be quite popular in Russia, here is another type, Sib River, comparable overall specs but the jet tunnel is different.

    Quite a bit more to buy them here after shipping, taxes, and logistics are covered. Closer to 2300 for the 380 and up from there.
