Walker Bay Rib - polypropylene

So a friend is offering his new WB RIB - polypropylene bottom - to me for a decent price, the WB is less than a year old - 10 foot. I want a hard bottom RIB due to barnacles etc in my cruising area. I'm looking for feedback from those who have experienced the polypropylene bottom on their dinghies.

Thank you ahead of time.

If decent price means low enough, nothing to lose trying it, they hold their value so well you'll make a profit selling it if you find it doesn't suit you.

Re: Walker Bay Rib - polypropylene

I was not happy with mine , it was a bit heavy and I found the hull not rigid enough for my likingI had the 310 with double floor and a 10 hp tohatsu my wife liked the ability to sit on the front seat .
I was Lake Ontario so I cant speak about barnicles etc
