Fall Into An Inflatable Boat For Family Fun

When the long hot days give way to the cold dark short days it means an end to many of the family activities outdoors.

Unfortunately the dark months can lead people to seek entertainment on electronic devices to fill the gap in excitement. On the other side of the of the spectrum are families who make the most out of a weekend to go fish, hunt, or crab. October gets pretty special in the NW with families catching salmon, hunting deer, crabbing, or just getting away to a spot you need a boat to get to.

One of our customers sent us his weekend with the family pics and we’d thought we’d share their experience.

A long weekend, a boat, and a little luck paid off for Steve and his family while on the Oregon Coast. Early morning temperature was right at that sweet spot where it’s too warm for ice but cold enough to where you don’t want to leave the tent or the cabin of your own volition. Only the sheer force of will to eat delicious crab and a fun day riding around in the Zodiac will muster the strength needed to get dressed.

The chore of baiting and setting pots is balanced by zipping effortlessly along in a Bombard Commando C4. When the situation allows forty ponies gallop along making the C4 earn another little bit of it’s legend. Steve has Seadek installed on the Bombard’s floorboards ensuring surefootedness even when covered with the Ocean’s bounty. Good thinking Steve!

While the crab traps are soaking clear weather allows for Zodiac rides for everyone including some random boaters who just wanted to try it out themselves. New friends are always made on these fall family outings.

Before they know it the intrepid family has to pull traps and sort the catch or no one gets their crab dinner. Around the fire is where legends and memories start. Friends and family laughing and telling the tales of the whopper that got away or that cool G-turn on the swell. Making these kind of memories is really what it’s all about.

We thank Steve for the pics and for bringing back memories of past adventures. If you want to make your own memories like Steve give IBC a call.

Bombard Commando C5s And The Thin Blue Line

On this Veteran’s Day IBC would like to thank all of¬†the men and women who served and continue to serve in the US military and those that have transitioned into The Thin Blue Line.

This morning IBC delivered another 2 Bombard Commando C5s to a law enforcement agency extending their mission capabilities. The Bombard Commando C5 is a boat that does a lot while maintaining a simple trim package. Helping to keep the costs down for agencies who are budget limited, but that still need to field operations on the water for public safety is the Bombard Commando’s call to action.

Bombard Commando C5s Police

The very capable Bombard Commando has long been a favorite of fisherman,crabbers, police, fire depts., racers and recreationalists alike because it’s sturdy construction and lack of needless attachments mean it is configurable for many different uses or missions.

Needless to say IBC loves this model range almost as much as our MILPRO line because our users are some of the hardest working and hardest playing people on the water today.

Please take the time to thank a veteran today and if you see a police officer on duty be sure to thank them as well. IBC is here when you are ready to purchase your first or next inflatable boat by calling (503) 235-2628 or by shopping online at our web store.

To my battle buddies, brothers and sisters in arms, and shipmates thank you for your service.
