“These images show typical usage of Zodiac Futura Mark 3 boats for geologic fieldwork in Alaska.” (John Garver)
Zulu Foxtrot and Bravo Charlie shared some pics of their Veteran’s Day Patrol upriver. Notice the fastwater, hyper-aerated areas, and whirlpools galore! This is pretty much a no boat zone and proof of that is in the line of boats downriver unable to proceed. The nature of the Zodaic Inflatable makes this quick and easy not to mention surprisingly dry.
Fastwater rescue in this zone is usually due to victims falling from aloft or ashore and getting trapped. This area in this type of condition is a death sentence for a skiff or similar hulled vessel. More and more fire departments and police departments are moving to the Zodiac Inflatable for reasons illustrated in the following photographs. Mission parameters are to save lives not endanger them, and nothing beats the Zodiac at this.
Mission Accomplished at the Inflatable Boat Center!

And to everyone who has served our country thanks on this Veteran’s day.
November always seems to be the month where boaters are laying up their boats until the warm weather comes around again.Before you decide to pack up the inflatable boat you should give it a good cleaning followed by a conditioning treatment.What we use here at IBC are the products from Aurora and some of the 303 Aerospace Protectant for all types and makes of inflatable boats.
For those R.I.B.s that have sat stationary in the water and now have a green beard we use inflatable bottom spray, followed by Polyguard and Repplin antifoulant.
Watch the video and see Adam make quick work of it with the Inflatable Bottom Spray product from Aurora.
For those grimey or slimey roll ups and tubesets I like Speed Clean. It works on Hypalon and P.V.C. alike and does’nt break down the plasticizers on the cheaper boats like so many other products do.What that translates to is no sticky gross tubes like dish soap and other cleaners with a high ph do to PVC and Hypalon inflatable boats.
You spent the money, take care of your boat properly and you’ll have years of worry free use.
Remember don’t roll up a dirty wet boat and stuff it into a bin until next season and you’ll have a great opening day experiance.
All of IBC’s Cleaners and Conditioners are available on our Main Site, and as always if you have any questions give us a call (503)235-2628 and we’ll get you the right stuff for your boat.
