Don't really want a hard floor as I'm under the impression that it will be harder to store put together on the rib?
I've got a spare 5 hp outboard and and one of those electric trolling motors (don't know what it's rated at but it was the biggest I could buy
its a nice idea to have a tender but my boat isnt big enough for a proper tender as they take up so much room when folded down to house it comfortably without it becoming a bit of a pain in the butt, if it is folded down then you have the hassell of pumping it up, then letting it down, stowing it on the boat etc,
i have a small cheap two man dingy boat that costs 10 quid and an electric pump, i can pump it up relatively quickly and then paddle in but have not had reason to use it yet as i let the crew off by the beach then take the boat out a bit and swim/walk in.
personally i would recommend the 10 quid boat approach first and see how you get on, then splash out on something more substantial if you feel the need
