Take care not to get that 'fishnet effect' when you sit on those tubes wearing shorts.

As I "sponsor" a professional bass fishing team we've studied the question quite closely. If you drift fish alot and you use video games "GPS and fishfinder" side by side ideally you require the console far enough forward so you can both fish from behind to watch the electronics. You also need individual jockey pods so each person can get off and on quickly and easily.

The puncture issue doesn't come so much from hooks but rather from bass flapping about in the bottom of the boat. An inexperienced fisherman will more than likely drop a fish onto the deck at some stage and if you don't have a low deck the fish will easily puncture the tubes on the underneath on the inside.

The other consideration is stability. Ideally you want a rib that has the tubes in the water when stood still.

For this type of fishing an A-frame is more a pain than anything else. Best to fix rod holder either to the console or the transom.

There are many ways to fish out there, i've described bass fishing on short drifts with lures.

The boat "Nitrox" who's owner posts on here, is also set up well for fishing I believe.
Thats a nice RIB but you can get a hardboat with a wheelhouse for that price! Mmmm warm wheelhouse!
