TendersTendersChoosing the right dinghy to perfectly suit your boat is an essential precaution. The Bayrunner Series was designed as a multi-function inflatable.  It can easily serve as a tender with ample seating for 4+ adults and it also, works great for fishing, crabbing, or just cruising. As I currently live in an apartment and don't have a truck right now but the wife wants a boat for us to have here where we live, we're pondering the option of getting an inflatable boat for fishing in lakes. Kayaks on a trailer or roof-rack may be an option (especially the newest versions with the tandem foot-pedals that move you forward instead of a motor or paddles: Hobie I live by the ocean, and while I haven't used one - I've spoken with a few owners of Zodiacs (they use, or have used, them for diving) around here. IBC provided Rozalia Project’s Bombard Commando C3 for their extended mission profile and they have been using it like it was meant to be used. ParleyxRozalia: An Expedition for the Oceans took place in July and August of 2015 on remote islands and hard to reach shorelines in the Gulf of Maine.
Thanks to our partner, Parley for the Oceans, and parters and host organizations around the country, during this expedition, we removed over 130,000 pieces of marine debris from shorelines, engaged thousands of people in person and through social media and collected data that will lead us to solutions and innovations to get ahead of this problem. I get asked a lot about replaceable tubesets and the Zodiac Advantage by even the most salty of sailors so I thought I’d share some boat porn.
Zodiac pioneered the replaceable tubeset to keep old boats as good as new by simply sliding the old tubes off and sliding a new set on.
Some models that make use of this system are the Zodiac Yachtline Series and the Zodiac Pro Series. We find it helpful to spray soapy water onto and into the bolt rope slots to act as lube for the installation process. Mike puts a new out of the box Zodiac MK3 Grand Raid together to show just what’s involved.
The Zodiac MK3 Grand Raid is probably the most used boat in water rescue and for exploration missions. While out on a safety patrol and rescue mission for the 2015 Portland Bridge Swim Mike and Adam came across a Zodiac MK2C Futura rigged with a 20hp Honda outboard.
Adam runs a Zodiac MK1 Futura and Mike has a hard time keeping up even though he has a bigger motor. If you want to go faster, get better fuel economy, get more mass on plane, and use less motor then look no further than the Zodiac Futura line (also available in military and professional models).The Futura hull turns better, rides flatter, and is easier to beach and recover making any outing more fun and less work. Purchase your next Zodiac from the Zodiac leaders at The Inflatable Boat Center by calling (503)235-2628 or by ordering online. IBC designed and owns some exclusive kit designs but they also sell sheet material for DIY applications. One customer named Paul who recently upgraded his dinghy to a Zodiac RIB 310 took a sheet of SeaDek and did his own application. Just a few quick picks of the corner IBC Booth at the 2014 NW Sportsmen’s Show in Portland Oregon before I go out there myself today.

This is a result of its unique trimaran FC hull shape designed with removable lateral stabilizers, and various floor system that allows it to carry combatants in a variety of missions. Continually being updated for its ever-changing roles, the FC range is Zodiac Milpro™ most recognizable military boat for Special Forces and Commandos.
Saturn inflatable boats start at only $549 for a 7’ personal dinghy and up to $1499 for a 15 feet, 8-persons inflatable monster. You’ll find inflatable boats from manufacturers like Z-Ray, Intex, Vinyl, Sevylor, Seahawk, and more. Visit their Boat Selection Wizard to help you choose the right boat that will perfectly satisfy your needs. You can stop by to see their 11,000 square foot showroom with over 50 inflatable boats on display. Their design, ergonomics, materials used and fittings were created with ease of manoeuvre in mind, to offer the crew all the space needed. For those who are looking for a boat which will provide them with the highest level of comfort, performance and security in which to practise their favourite sport. With its unique experience in this field, Zodiac has built a range of dinghies to suit any situation.
The Bombard C3 Commando was recommended to them by high latitude sailor Skip Novak as the go to expedition boat for remote access. This video, by Alex Levin, introduces Rozalia Project through the experience of the ParleyxRozalia Expedition.
Our objective was to pick up as much ocean trash as we could, bring it back to the mainland for upcycling and recycling and work with coastal residents to collect data and develop solutions to the problem. The Bombard Commando C5 has the room, takes the bigger motors, has a wooden keel for an all around whoop butt package. Things that make this easier, that we didn’t do, is to stretch the boat without floorboards on a brand new boat, as well as spray soapy water around the tube to floor fabric seam to let the new floorboards slide into place.
Zodiac engineers knew that they could go faster with less wetted surface so the measured and analyzed and planed then made the best hull imaginable.
Turns can be so instantaneous that you can toss out an unprepared rider when the boat is at full speed. SeaDek manufactures EVA non-skid for boats and anything else that requires good traction in all conditions.
He got the idea after talking to SeaDek surfing buddy Jason at a boat dealers show and the rest is history. Call us and see what we can do for your boat or if you want to do it yourself what you can do for yourself with IBC and SeaDek. Stop by the booth and say hi to Adam and Mike, both have enough miles at sea to answer just about any question you may have about boating.
It is the only craft of its type that has actually been used in combat in different theatres and comes through with flying colors. The hull shape is especially important as it can get a large load on the plane as well as give the pilot unsurpassed maneuverability in various and dangerous conditions.
I used it in Long Island Sound (not sure what part of NY you are in - LI Sound is a body of water that's an offshoot of the Atlantic Ocean, salt water, but smaller waves) as well as in a river harbor that emptied out into the Sound.


IBC also uses the Bombard Commando series of inflatable boats for much of their use as well. A new out of the box boat will fight you for the first assembly so just have patience and if possible a helping hand.
Heavy Duty Aluminum Floorboards with included Zodiac Floor Channel System allows for many accessories to be used expanding mission capabilities even greater. Often used in military special forces designs because it will get enormous amounts on plane with very little hp it also tracks and turns better than any other hull type. Zodiac’s patented Futura hull utilizes additional tubes on the bottoms of the main sponsons that give it lift and makes it ride like a bullet train. What The Inflatable Boat Center does with it is make exclusive custom kits for the Zodiac Yachtline series of inflatable boats, as well as offer solutions for many of the other sport boat types. The boat does not have a keel, and so it is not always easy to keep it going in the desired direction if there's a stiff wind blowing. What makes this possible is the environmental float suit first made popular by the military. The inflatable air bladders do provide some lateral stability, and the outboard acts as a rudder, but you can still run into problems keeping it pointed properly.
The problem with the copy cats boats is they are merely imitations and haven’t been engineered for each model like the Zodiacs which is why so many boats get utterly owned by Zodiac Futura hulls.
Taking a page from their book the yachtsman or inflatable boat operator can effectively extend the boating season to a year round activity. That might be less of an issue on a lake or pond. It is light enough to carry it around uninflated (I carried mine in my Chevy van), and then you inflate it right at the dock.
We have countless surfers, fishermen, explorers, and recreational users going where others can’t in their Bombard Commandos.
Fishing, hunting,crabbing, camping or just playing around are activities that open up completely in the winter months. The manually-operated (foot) pump works, but it's kind of boring to do several hundred pumps before the thing is inflated. In general I liked it. Unbelievable carrying capacity on an ultra-stable platform means impossible things become realities. Unrestrictive vistas and aventures await you this winter season and all it takes is a suit.
Check out Rozalia Project’s video below and see some of the things they do in their Bombard Commando C3. IBC can get you the right suit for any activity but for most it will be the Mustang or 1st Watch Environmental Float Suit that meets the need.
I was able to patch some of them (with external vinyl patches), but I currently have one that I haven't been able to track down. I bought a kit with patching liquid that you're supposed to pump into the air bladders to seal it from the inside, but I haven't tried it yet. They sell larger models that do not deflate, and larger models that have more of a keel.
