Side platform for inflatable boats
An additional side platform on which a high-quality two-layer tent with reliable attachments is installed was specially designed for long distance travel. The smallest model, suitable for installing a side platform - Travel 530B. Viewing models in 3D on our website will help not only pick up a boat that suits you, but also equip it with a side platform and additional equipment, and most importantly - consider everything in detail and from all directions, with observance of all real proportions.
If on the main boat you plan to install a motor with a power of 5-6 hp, the maximum speed with two side platforms will be about 18 km per hour, regardless of the length of the main boat. It is clear that the more loading, the lower the maximum speed. But it will decrease very smoothly. So, even at full load, the speed of TRAVEL with two platforms will be not less than 11 km per hour. For example, the speed of a conventional inflatable keel boat, 3 m long, with a similar engine and two people on board, will not exceed 10 km per hour. And the most comfortable speed for traveling is 7 - 8 km per hour (cruising speed of a double frame kayak), achieved at an average economic engine speed. Such excellent speed characteristics are achieved due to the catamaran structure, integral cylinders of special hydrodynamic shape and the bottom, not touching the water surface.
Thus, with minimal costs you can get to the most remote and "fish" places, and enjoy fishing and rest in full. And in the summer you can spend unforgettable holidays on the water with the whole family or a good company in complete comfort, and every year - in different places.
- So what gives? The main thing is that when you are always near the house - it's a completely different feeling on the journey.
1. You do not have to worry and look for places to park on the shore, which is not so much, and every year they become all dirtier. 2. Do not need to camp every day, carry things, then collect the camp and again transfer and put things in a kayak. By the way, for two weeks of travel, not less than 30 hours of monotonous and tedious activity is saved! 3. You are no longer worried about the weather: sunny - well, overcast - excellent, it began to rain - climbed into the tent and relaxed.
4. You can anchor in the middle of the river or lake in the most beautiful place, and fish, sunbathe, swim directly from the boat and sleep on the water. 5. Sleeping in a tent on an inflatable platform is much better than on the shore - warm, smooth and even. 6. Overnight on the water is absolutely safe - you can only get to you by swimming.
7. The safety of the boat itself is also greatly improved: it is impossible to turn this design at all, and additional inflatable elements increase passive safety.
8. Your possibilities greatly expand - the range of boat use increases, it becomes possible to autonomously travel over long distances. Safety, comfort and coziness, economy and total independence are the components of a full-fledged holiday at the Boathouse (floating house).
"Having BOATHOUSE - you live with pleasure".
The side platform is a platform, 2.1 m by 1.5 m in size, made of a spar beam from a boat PVC fabric. It has a rather large longitudinal stiffness, but it is soft enough and comfortable for sleeping. Inflatable flooring is attached to frame aluminum pipes, which, in turn, are attached to an additional cylinder and to the main boat. The first and fifth pipes are bolted to the frames of the boat, and the second, third and fourth - on the boat. Thus, the rigidity of the whole structure is achieved, which is amplified by a halyard stretched from the bow of the boat to an additional balloon.
This construction is not new, it goes back deeply into antiquity, when Polynesians and other nationalities overcame long distances on their shuttles with a side platform made of bamboo or wooden sticks and a hut or canopy mounted on it. Modern materials and new technologies have allowed to recreate this ingenious, in its simplicity, and practical design and make it much easier, safer and more comfortable. In the daytime, the inflatable flooring is used for recreation: it can be sunbathed, you can swim with it, you can get full-length and fish, or simply use it as a cargo platform. And at night, literally in 5 minutes, a qualitative two-layer tent is installed, with the formula 2 + 1. It is very securely attached to the platform, so that neither strong winds nor heavy rains can prevent your rest.
Side platforms for inflatable boats are designed for all model categories of boats Boathouse - from kayaks to sea boats. The only thing they differ from each other is an additional balloon, the diameter of which should be the same as that of the main boat. It is clear that not all models are suitable for the installation of side platforms, but only those that, in addition to the large cockpit, to which the side platform is attached, there is still at least one cockpit ahead. Visualization 3D will determine the most suitable boat model for you, and consider the whole design from different angles.
Thanks to hydrodynamic cylinders, the lateral platform slows down the movement by only 1 - 2 km per hour. But what advantages does it give only 3 sq.m. living area! First of all, it is an opportunity to live on the water in comfort for a long time, not depending on the parking places on the shore. Save a lot of time and effort in finding a suitable place on the shore, for the breakdown and assembly of the camp (monotonous and annoying activities). Do not depend on the vagaries of the weather: when the house is always there, you do not worry about anything. And of course, a trip to the Boathouse (floating house) gives quite different sensations - security, comfort, full of freedom and peace. This is the best rest for 100%.
