Surely driving a hybrid contradicts driving a big guzzler on the back of a rib!? 

I don't suppose Toyota had towing powerboats in mind when they designed the Prius.

We're only talking about a 3.1m boat here. Part of the attraction of a small SIB is inflating it in the pouring rain when your being eaten alive with midges! The Zodiac foot pump is more than adequate. Honestly, it will take you less than 20 minutes!

All Hybrids have a 12v battery which is accessible for starting. Have a look in the right hand side of the boot. It will provide the power you require if you leave the vehicle on. The engine will cut in as required to recharge it as you draw current.
