This one in from Bodega Bay from long time Commando user Charles F.
Not his first Bombard Inflatable Boat, Charles rigged his new C5 himself using off the shelf parts and some custom fitting on his radar arch.
The radar arch is rigged for easy break down and storage only taking a couple of minutes to fully rig the Raymarine System and Electric Scotty Downrigger.
Featuring a Yeti Cooler for a front seat, 12 gallon fuel tank with Yamaha 10 micron fuel water seperator and a F50 Yamaha Outboard.
Charles runs his Commando all around the bay and in the surf taking fish in some spots a regular boat would fear to go.
The Commando Inflatable takes you there and back in complete safety and confidence like no other boat can.
Sure I love the Commando line, I run one myself, and more and more people looking for hi performance and economy are finding the Commando to be the “Sweet Spot” in boating.
All items listed or in the photographs are available at the Inflatable Boat Center or online at www.inflatableboats.com
Thanks Charles for sharing these pics of your awesome boat.
See you on the water!

Dr. Bombard’s Journey

It’s October again and that always makes me think of Dr. Bombard’s journey accross the Atlantic Ocean alone in a prototype inflatable boat.

On October 19th 1952 Dr. Bombard proved a castaway could survive in a liferaft until rescue on what the ocean could provide. With no food or water on his boat Dr. Bombard drifted for 65 days to prove his point. Dubbed the Heretique his prototype MK3 inflatable boat built by Zodiac would catapult survival at sea ahead centuries and boat design and knowlege immeasureably.

Starting October 19th and continuing on until December 23rd IBC will offer all Bombard Inflatable Boats in stock at an even better discount.
Our way of paying respect to Dr. Bombard and helping to get another generation of explorers on the water and off to adventure. Supplies limited to what’s on hand in the showroom and ware house.

This is a great time to buy as all new stock will be priced higher to reflect cost incereases for next season. Don’t worry IBC has a long history with the Bombard line and will always have boats coming, but not always at the price offered during the sale.

If you are looking for a jet powered inflatable boat the Bombard Commando series is the go to design. This custom mod from IBC isĀ used by professionals the world over for shallow water operations, fishery based platforms, rescue, and law enforcement. A boat that can be rolled up and put into a small plane, car, or boat allows for rapid deployment anywhere there is water and a need for ultimate performance.
