Do you think I should have more?

No. You need one of these



and for really good days one of these....

Anyways, is it wise to have a sharp object around a blow-up boat?

Probably less dangerous than fishing from one

Why mount it on the boat at all? I have one on my life jacket and as I wear it's all the time it's always to hand. Mine has a squared off head, ideal for use on a rib and is serrated - a must. It is made by Gerber. I paid 10 for it on EBay a few years ago.

That must be why most ribnetters don't apreciate my wit.

The expression 'wear a knife save a life' comes to mind when diving and boating. Most Commercial Divers I work with use a knife made by a company called Green River and they are similar to a small cooks knife in apearance.

They mostly make their own scabbards from a piece of hose pipe. if one did this then the knifes scabbard could be mounted inside the next size of hose pipe up which could be fixed wherever you want it

there are of course more expesive solutions!
