Disadvantages Of An Inflatable:
1- Takes between a half hour and an hour to inflate or deflate.
2- Punctures easily if you hit a sharp rock or stump
3- Inflated tubes uses up 30% to 40% of available interior space – unless they are punctured!
4- Porta-Bote needs only a small 4HP- 6HP outboard to go up to 15 mph with one person.
Porta-Bote will get up on a plane with as little as 2.5 HP with one person aboard!
Inflatables needs at least a 20 HP outboard weighing over 120 pounds (54.5kg) for similar performance
No pumps. No patch kit.
No more worrying about a popped air chamber.
No more trying to stop the slow leaks that develop every day you own an inflatable boat.
- Over 70% of new Porta-Bote owners are former inflatable owners who have “had it” with all the hassle involved with an inflatable.
- RV Owners can “hang” Porta-Bote on the side or roof or underneath. When you’re through using a wet, soggy inflatable, where are you going to store it?
- Sailboat & Cruiser Owners can store the folded Porta-Bote anywhere you can store a surfboard.
Notice how many boat owners never deflate their clumsy inflatables?
- Porta-Bote tows like a dream behind a sailboat. Towing an inflatable is like pulling an anchor.
Reduces your speed up to 30%.
