Some impressive packing...

If we didn't have a rather large Lab we *might* get it all in although we seem to fill the car/roofbox as it is without a boat and engine!

I've done the - jam it in / on the car routine.
I even bought a small camping trailer and roof box to accommodate all my gear.
I have to say that my preferred method of sibbing /fishing and camping is with my sib inflated and trailered.
The sib itself is utilised as a storage compartment for all the brick a brac.
I put the cover on the sib to keep it waterproof.
My two four stroke engines then go in the car boot.
Once at launch site the engines go on the sib and I pack the stuff from the sib back into the car.
The engines remain on the sib until the homeward journey.

I still don't get why anyone would buy a sib then never deflate it.It seems pointless having all the downsides of a sib then not using its one huge advantage
If it's never going to be deflated buy a rib, then you don't need worry about stowing the engine & you can fill it with stuff & use it as a trailer.
A basic rib will perform much better,be stronger & Ali ones are lighter than sibs.
I suppose the decision is do you need &will you use the convenience of being able to pack it into a small space

I agree with all of the above.
If I went back to 2010 armed with what I know now I'd be buying a small alu hulled rib - comparable in size to my Honwave.
For me the initial reason for going for a sib was being able to take it away with my caravan.
Soon I wanted to use it regulate from home for local sea fishing and quickly got hacked off with the build up strip down and wash out process that accompanied every trip.
It got to the stage where I really wanted to go out sea fishing on various particular days but didn't because I couldn't be arsed wrestling the sib out of the garage and putting myself through another build process - hence I built a trailer.
I've now got a small slat floor Seago for my caravan trips which is a doddle to carry and build .
When it comes time to say ta ta to my Honwave it will be hello to an aluminium hulled rib.

Last row is partially folded. This big black bag in the middle keeps fins, masks, neoprene suits for 5 persons family.
Engine was on folded trailer like this one mentioned below in vertical position


Now I do prefer trailer and RIB. 50 kg was too much for me to carry and put and get from the car.

I agree with the above if you plan to keep inflated on a trailer, it's a rib all day long. Though this does depend on where and how you plan to launch. Do you plan to launch on a decent slipway or beach etc?

You still have an option of fold up even if it's kept on a trailer not so with a rib
