Tender size RIB advice

A few weeks ago I spent a weeks holiday on a rag and stick boat (Sunsail). The boat had a little Carib rib tied on the back with a 9.8 tohatsu motor on it. I used the rib every day for trips ashore, snorkelling etc and really enjoyed it. I am now considering getting something similar to use from a shallow beach in Pembrokeshire for potching about and fishing mainly spinning and trolling.
My thoughts were that I could get a small rib on a trailer, fit beachmaster wheels, and have a small outboard that I could lift off and put in the sanctuary of my house/garage at the end of the day.
I have done some searches here but all of the small stuff seem to be airdecks. I have no experience of these but a rib seems more sensible for me as the boat will be living outside on a trailer all year round.
Can anyone offer advice or have experience on this type of set up?

I stumbled on a vid on you tube from the beachmaster website showing a vid of the exact set up i had on holiday and before anyone asks no the vid wasnt due to my cock up!

I have put the you tube link below if that doesnt work search for "unmanned tender".



Cheers

I'm very good. I'd work for you too, but I'd have to charge you VAT...

That is ok, I would claim it back at a higher rate through Luxembourg.
