Hi all, I live in leysdown on the isle of sheppey, for the last year I've been sea fishing using a trident kayak, but getting mad ideas to stick an engine on it, today I got a good deal, and picked up and 18 month old rib and outboard, a sun sport hybrid kayak rib and mercury 3.5 outboard, hopefully itll fill my need for an engine rather than a paddle, and will be just as good, if not better to fish from, my only worry would be hooks and an inflatable, but fingers crossed, the extra space would give me room for a crab pot or two, along with the extended distant of travel,

I planned to fit an electric trolling motor to the side of our 2.5 man Sevylor Hudson canoe. Mounting frames are available to buy and the motor mounts on one side, not the stern.

In the end it never happened because I gave up and purchased a SIB. Maybe I'll sell the Hudson now lol.

Great looking outfit you have!

Looks just the job. Got to be more stable to fish from than a kayak?

Looks like it might a sib... soft inflatable boat rather than rigid inflatable boat as it looks like it has an air floor.

Itís just terminology lol. Enjoy your fishing and be careful with your hooks

You will be fine with hooks, after over two decades of fishing with ribs and inflatables never had an issue, I think it would actually be extremely hard to puncture a tube with a hook even trying. Direct strike with a knife maybe but youíll be absolutely fine
