Bombard Commando C5 Jet

It seems like we keep coming back to the Bombard Commando line on this blog and it’s no secret the Bombard Commando is one of our favorites but we aren’t the only ones. Users who want a good performing boat that will take a bit of power seek us out and have us build them a custom setup like the one featured here.

In this iteration IBC’s Special Boat Division builds a Bombard Commando C5 Jet with an arch and IBC Spec.Boat.Div. bottom mods that keep the C5 on it’s course and protects it from hard impacts during rescues in swift and skinny water. Sure this boat still performs exceptionally well in calm deep water and in the blue water it was designed for but the added mods make this one hard to beat in any situation.

The intended purpose is to expand the capabilities of a fire/rescue group in their area of growing water borne rescue. IBC has done this and done it in spades as much of the tech that you don’t see in these pics was developed during the early years of Ron’s inflatable boat racing career. Running thru the surf zones in Africa and far away islands led to one tactic and crushing the white water in places like the Peyette River in Idaho brought about still more advances. The people who use these boats we build all swear by them and proclaim it’s one of the best tools in their box.

Other uses for a setup like this are fishing and hunting guides in the Northern Territories, oil platforms in South and Central America, law enforcement, surfing, diving, crabbing, fun, etc. Basically if you need to draw a minimum of water and carry a goodly amount of power while still being able to load up a ton of cargo your options drop off precipitously. The Bombard Commando handles all of this and more and for a limited time (until December 24th) all Bombard inflatable boats are on sale at IBC. Don’t wait until next year and pay more, get your Bombard Commando today and go big on the water!

 

 

Zodiac MILPRO SRA 750 D-Tube

Agencies that spend their time on the water ask for it by name….Zodiac MILPRO’s SRA 750 D-Tube. With so many marine operations underway in today’s society it’s no wonder that Zodiac MILPRO took the tried and true RHIB or RIB platform to new levels of performance in the SRA 750’s multi-mission platform. Suited for both ship based and port based operations the increased internal space provided by the Zodiac MILPRO SRA 750 “D-Tube” checks off the boxes for VBSS missions abroad as well as Homeland Security missions at the home fronts.

Features such as Zodiac’s shock mitigation system saves the backs of our warfighters in SWCC where surgery scars are the norm not the exception. High performance fly by wire controls and ultra high output outboards that sip fuel while on mission married to the SRA 750’s advanced hull design mean more time on station with lower operating costs and extended range capabilities. Abilities to go from over the horizon to the littoral zones for team insertion are noteworthy force multipliers making missions successful, safer and wider reaching into the battle space or rescue area.

For ship to ship VBSS missions (one of the most dangerous missions to undertake) operators appreciate the speed and stability only a Zodiac MILPRO can bring to the fight making it the ideal platform for boarding and clearing vessels who venture into exclusion zones. Pirates hate the Zodiac MILPRO SRA’s ability to mount weapons on the re-configurable deck plate system and it’s unparalleled speed in conditions that will sink lesser boats. Encircling and capturing combatant craft while at sea before they can come close to shipping or military assets means more lives saved.

You don’t have to the tip of the spear to use the SRA 750, whale watching tours to shipyard and coastal rescue organizations can all benefit from the steady and speedy nature of the SRA 750. Bar pilots love what the SRA 750 represents in terms of usability and cost of ownership when compared to more traditional boats on the market today. Rigid foam collars are available for the heavy shipping user as well as the recreational customer and can offer some advantages over inflatable when used in a high abrasion application like salvage or deep sea missions.

Yes the SRA 750 has notched it up a few clicks for it’s users and since it’s multi-mission there’s a configuration for anyone who works on the water. To schedule a demo or to purchase a Zodiac MILPRO SRA 750 call the pros at IBC (503)235-2628 and get the best boat for the mission of choice.

Zodiac MILPRO ZMSR 380 Surf Rescue Boat

If you’re living near us you know the weather has been a bit cool lately with lows in the 30’s, but if you’re near the river you know this is the time of year we get to play too.

Recently IBC’s test pilots Adam and Mike went out to hit the water with Depot Bay’s Fire and Rescue to demo a few boats of which the Zodiac ZMSR 380 Surf Rescue was one. Zodiac MILPRO’s ZMSR 380 is an easy to assemble and use inflatable boat designed for the challenges rescue personnel face in coastal operation zones. From the water up the Zodiac MILPRO ZMSR takes lessons learned from across the globe’s surf zones and puts technology and know how into the very core of the design.

Features such as the stringerless composite deck with integrated foot straps and soft non-skid come to meet the eye when you peer into the boat. To address the surf zones ability to move a city block of water per wave Zodiac MILPRO’s approach to dewatering is simple yet elegant utilizing dual ovoid scupper trunks that dump the water out almost as fast as it can come in. Rounding out the integrated bow dodger is a co-pilot handle making punching thru the surf safe and easy.

The Zodiac MILPRO ZMSR 380 is also available in a racing version for the lifeguard competitions in Australia and South Africa. If you’re not a competitor or a surf lifeguard don’t fret the Zodiac MILPRO ZMSR 380 performs exceptionally well in swift water and flood water rescues making it a top level pick for inland rescue teams that need a high performance rescue platform.

To schedule a demo with IBC in the Zodiac MILPRO ZMSR 380 have your department’s training officer or chief give us a call (503)235-2628 and get your space reserved. To order the Zodiac MILPRO ZMSR 380 shop online via our secure website or give the pros at IBC a call (503)235-2628.
