The boats tubs, hetches and battery boxes are structured from fibreglass and coloured with gelcoat during moulding.
The fabric we use for our inflatable tubes is a 32oz reinforced PVC material.
On the bumperboat tubes we always put an extra layer of wear protection material around the tube perimeter, since the tubes bump into each other and into other objects, most wear and tear damage occurs in that area.
Each inflatable has a rope attachment for towing.
The dimensions of each boat(without inflatable) is:
Weight: (With battery) 33kg
Weight: (With battery) ~23kg
The battery included with each bumperboat is a maintenance free gel battery. The battery is totaly sealed and has a life expectancy of 500 cycles(50% depth of discharge).
It has a capacity of 62Ah 12V. This normally allows about 4-5 hours of operation.
High turnover users may want to consider purchasing extra batteries if it’s required to operate the barca choc boats for longer then 5 hours in any one day.
Propulsion is provided by a hydrojet totally moulded in aluminium, powder coated and fixed to the motor housing by a stainless steel tube. A stainless steel spindle connects the motor with the propeller through a self-lubricating brass box and a brass coupling.
The system is designed to provide a silent running with minimum wear and tear.
A twin-bladed propeller, crafted from a licensed synthetic material.
The battery box housing is made of fibre-glass and coloured with gelcoat.
The battery-generated power is transmitted to the motor by stainless steel contacts. The battery box can be removed easily from the boat to allow service or storage.
