Have you considered a 5.3m cat hulled SIB, inflatable beach rollers, and just clipping some foam pads under the hijackers when beached to protect them from the barnacles?

Well, was talking about Poly's idea of a portable gangway; but those Whaly boats are kind of neat (though I don't think I'd ever go to sea in something called a Whaly - maybe that's just me though...)

I'm with you! Whaly are essentially competitors of the FunYak that I own. I don't think they go much about 4m though and so might be a bit small for 6+crew. I also think they have the same issue - there isn't a US / Canadian supplier (there is a commercial opportunity there - almost no body is selling polythylene molded workboats / runabouts in North America...).

But I do agree Whaly is a branding catastrophe!

Rubber Matt

More out of the box...I know this sounds stupid but what about a flexible thick smooth (no snagging) rubber mat dropped off from the bow as you are coming to shore. It would hang down and fold underneath the bow part way down the hull of the boat as it got shallower? When not in use just strap it down on bow. it would need to be heavy enough or weighted to ensure it wouldn't go to the side &/or strap to side cleats so you can then pull into place under hull before landing. This assumes no rough water landings and that you are going slow. There are patents for sillier things

Never used them Pioner - Pioner - the best rigid boats for work or leisure

But they show them as robust to stones:





Made in Norwegian.
Maybe it is only advert. but you can ask UK dealer
