QUESTION: How tough is the boat? How will the material stand up against sand, small stones, rocks and abrasive surfaces?
ANSWER: An inflatable boat has the advantage that the inflatable surface gives way slightly to external pressure and therefore no hole emerges. Stones in the water are generally smooth and so don’t cause any damage. Sand will not cause any abrasions to the surface under normal usage. Some very sharp corals or metal objects may damage the material. Please note that the MiniCat is supplied with a repair kit, small repairs to the floats are a simple task.
