I was considering same thing - get a very small SIB - i was thinking smallest Honwave with 2.3hp Honda 4stroke. Great for getting ashore when not quite sure if should put the bow in, or on a falling tide etc...

Fair question really. I reckon its down to being lazy - but that said, probably more work hooking up a small outboard than it would be rowing ashore. Good point well made. I'm off to think about this....

A few years ago I bought a 2.3m seago sib with a 4hp Suzuki for a RC585. Ended up never using the engine as it was easier to use the oars. Blowing it up onboard was fun the first time. They're bigger than you think when you're on a rib.

Dingy of death!

Got 2.3 wet line (I think) with a 2.2 yam. Named the "dingy of death" since my wife cracked her shin open on the transom and then fainted on the beach first time out! I reckon the grockles thought she was under the influence.

Could do with an electric pump, but easy to blow up on the rear deck (read wasted space) and the A frame is useful for leaning it against to dry out before packing it away.

Good fun for pottering about and useful for leaving on the beach when visiting the pub! Even the dog is getting used to it, but prefers to swim in.
