Same here.

Looks like three of us with "buy it now" hair trigger finger, got in on it before the price doubled.

I needed another boat like a hole in the head

I was feeling left out, but just received my shipping confirmation too


If I remember photos of you hangar/garage, you have more than a boat problem

Re: Um..is this for real??

Yep, it's for real.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with it. My wife and daughter think it is the bomb, so I guess we will try using it.

This "310" size boat will fit on Panope's cabin trunk, but ideally a smaller example (270) would be better.

I can borrow an 8 HP honda and see how that performs. I'd rather have a 6 HP (much lighter) but there is not much point in having a boat like this if it will not plane.

Mines sitting in a box below the boat and hasn't been touched yet. Did yours come with a title or some way to register it?

No title, Matt. Just a warranty registration card.

Re: Um..is this for real??

What's the normal price on these, & why do you guys seem to hold them in such high regard?

Re: Um..is this for real??

Normal price seems to be around $2500.

I have no opinion about this or any other inflatable boat. Yet.

I bought this because it seemed like an extremely inexpensive price. With tax mine was $550. Shipping was free.

Re: Um..is this for real??

Just searched Defenders vast inflatable dinghy offerings. The cheapest "310" size, airfloor, Hypalon boat is $2100.

Re: Um..is this for real??

So does it seem like a legit brand new hypalon inflatable? Not a returned item or something other than what it was described as?

Mine is sitting at a Postal Annex and I won't be able to get it for another day or so. I'm very curious to know if we got a sweet deal or not.

Re: Um..is this for real??

Mine seems perfectly legitimate, brand spanking new, unopened, and as advertised.

No idea how long the item has been "sitting on the shelf". Everything seemed "fresh".

The only problem: The included manual pump is damaged (cracked body from shipping). Have not yet heard back from Amazon about it. For me it is not a big deal as I have two other identical pumps from other inflatable boats (kayak, SUP).
