While playing catchup from the NW Sportsman Show and the Portland Boat Show I thought I’d take a breather and share a couple of pics of some boats being built out right now. Yes there are several ribs coming down the pipes but for now it’s the sand on knuckles builds that I’m focused on.
IBC has always been a fan of the Zodiac Bombard Commando model line and as such we’ve always had our finger on the pulse of the outdoors. We’ve rigged Zodiac Bombard Commandos for hunters, fisherman, biologists, geologists, et al. and with a good record of keeping their feet dry and their cargo safe.
Currently we’re rigging several C5 Commandos and a few C4 Commandos of which I have pictures of today.
The black Zodiac Bombard Commando C4 pictured above is rigged with a 50/35 hp outboard jet and some extra kit to scratch it’s way through the bush creeks and rivers on the way to it’s destination. It’s new home in the Northern Territories will test what it was designed for, getting in the skinny water to check the steelhead population and get back home again. Mission Accomplished!

Up Up And Away!
Never has one boat model been to so many places and served so many different users so well. The Zodiac Cadet Fastroller series is one of our favorites here in the NW the Arctic and in the Tropics. IBC has thrown these models out of moving planes onto the Arctic ice in recent months bringing trapped researchers home during a breakup. We’ve loaded them into small sailboats headed for the horizon, and we’ve put more than a few into RVs for travelers needing a reliable boat that doesn’t need a trailer.
Recently one of our long time customers sent some pics of a stop he made in the Bahamas while out adventuring. They knew of a nice spot with not a lot of people, ok no people to be precise, that was pretty inaccessible to most craft. Explorers would fly over in planes and dream of diving or snorkeling pristine waters and untouched reefs. If only they could get there?
Since our guy is kind of a “Fly Boy” he decided to fly in with a Zodiac Cadet Fastroller in the plane, land on the water and put the Zodiac to use. I might like to mention here that the Zodiac Cadet Fastroller series of inflatable boats seems to be a favorite for pilots around the big blue marble we call Earth. The reality of “Earth” is that most of it is covered by water, maybe it should be called “Water”? Anyway, our intrepid adventurer had great success on this stop and sent us a few pics we thought we’d share with our extended family of friends and customers.
These types of adventures are what get us out of bed in the mornings. We breathe in the sea air filling our lungs and our souls with the desire to see what lies beyond the hazy horizon.
