Spurdogs will damage tubes. Have made a long handled disgorger so that they can be unhooked without bringing close.

Most rods that do get damaged on a RIB are generally from being stood on. Have you got rod holders? if not a really easy solution is to get some 1.5 inch plumbing plastic pipe (i.e. what you may have off the back of your kitchen sink, although not suggesting you go and cut a bit now)
On my older Zodiac I attached two with zip ties to the rear bench seats and these held rods easily and out of the way, also trawled with them in that position. Think length was about 12 inches and I drilled two sets of two holes at top and bottom close together for zip ties and so that they would not interfere with the rod stock when slid down. Have also seen them attached to A Frames. Worth having in my opinion.

I've got 15 rod holders on mine and still find its not enough, not just for the rods but the gaff, net, scrubbing broom, GoPro poll, dive flag etc.

Heading off with my rib this weekend driving 3000km up the coast with the kids and dog on a 3 week fishing adventure. Hooks are the last thing I'm concerned about, crocodiles, sharks, dog tooth tuna, wahoo are all on our target list.

I have two young boys, they fish from the inflatable all the time. I do worry about the hooks but so far...so good.
