Aqua Marine Inflatables????

Looking to buy a new dingy for the boat. Always had an Achilles Hypolan which I definitely got my moneys worth. Thing still floats after 15 years lol. Anyway I'm aware of all the larger brands, but while just checking out e bay for the hell of it I came across a Canadian manufacturer called Aquamarine. It looks like a decent product. PVC, not Hypalon, but double layered and extra layers on the bottom of the pontoons for wear. 10 ft dingy for 1.300. Looks like a good deal. Even if I bought it for a secondary valise dingy. Anyone have one of these who can share some info on quality?????

So after some research I've discovered that Aquamarine and Highfield, one saying they are Canadian and the other Australian are both made in China. Considering China has just F-ed the whole planet I'm not buying anything from there. I'll crank my old 13 ft Boston Whaler up on the deck.

Ten minute walk from me right now. The harbor has a lot of them, in hard long term use/abuse by sailing programs. And in private ownership. Not inexpensive. But they are solid people and a solid product.

Just looked at their website, looks like they only make larger Ribs, starting at 15.7ft.
