The structure of a hard bottom inflatable boat directly affects portability, ease of installation, storage volume and performance of water performance. Synthetic plastic, FRP or aluminum alloy hard bottom inflatable boats with V-shaped bottoms perform well, but must be transported and stored by trailers and hangers. The boat at the bottom of the flexible fabric can be folded very compactly, but at the expense of some water driving performance. If you want the ship to take off at speeds of at least 5 mph (8 km/h), a hard-bottom inflatable boat is a must.
The bottom plate of the hard bottom inflatable boat is detachable and is generally made of composite wood or aluminum alloy. The bottom plate is fastened from the sides of the two sides by a through-hole fixing groove made of aluminum. After the bottom plate is installed, the left and right side air chambers and the conical keel air chamber are inflated, and the bottom of the ship is tightly formed into a shallow V shape, which makes it have better turning and drainage characteristics than the flat bottom boat. This form of base plate makes it heavier than a typical rubber dinghy, but it can be installed with a 6-25 hp plug-in, running faster and cost-effectively.
The high-pressure inflatable bottom plate (pressure up to 11 psi) unique to the hard bottom inflatable boat is very light. When deflated, it can be rolled up in the boat. It can take off immediately after launching, and we can get good performance with a small horsepower plug-in machine, which makes us very surprised. This is due to its small weight. The whole boat can be slightly curved to absorb the impact of the waves, and on a hard-bottomed ship, such waves may pull people out. Although it is a bit more expensive than a conventional sport boat, it combines many advantages and is not mediocre. Installation time is very short!
