Good point on the cladding - if I can't make that work, there's always LimeyLinda's practical suggestion.
I think the general consensus is 'don't worry about it', so I wont!
Thanks everyone for the good feedback.

If you get a fishfinder and see a fish on it, can you take a picture of the screen. I maintain no one has ever seen a real fish on a fishfinder and if a fishy icon pops up on the screen, its only a dummy fish icon programmed in by the manufactures.

watch the Dorsal fin on some fish

I found that I was scratching up my tubes from the dorsal fins of some larger fish like pike. A good net solfed the problem.

Here's an excellent 'beachin and fishing' tool. It looks a very stable platform.
You've been outbid
Quickly, bid again - you won't want that one to get away

In my opinion I would be looking for a RIB that has the tubes touching the water at all times, this will give you the stability advantage of a RIB, they will also have less freeboard allowing you easier access to your fish!
