Stay away from Walker Bay air floor in my opinion. We have had nothing but trouble with ours and the repair gurus have given up on fixing the air floor, as soon as you fix one hole another appears. We had friends with a very expensive WB RIB, with center console and 20 hp. Also major problems and the company support was terrible.

We put Petit inflatable on our boat and never again. When you bring it on deck and fold it you get black powder everywhere. If it all fell off at once it would have been better. Ours just get falling off, now for more than three years.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
