Owning a RIB and a SIB
Does anyone own both a RIB and a SIB?
I have a 14-ft RIB, and it's great for fishing. However, the launch ramps around me a pretty busy, and if I want good parking I have to wake up at 4:30am, and when I am all done washing and storing the RIB into the garage, it would be around 3pm. And then I have to clean all the fish .... that's a lot of work.
I am thinking of getting a used small SIB (8~10ft) when I want to go out by myself. Will an air floor be quick to set up and store? Since it's smaller I guess it would be a lot quicker to wash?
I also considered kayaks but after watching videos of people fishing in the ocean that's kind of scary to me.
