To fish or not to fish on a rib?

I have some friends coming down who are keen to go out fishing but I am not so keen on having hooks anywhere near the boat and tubes - what are your thoughts and what does anyone else do?

Been fishing off ribs for 30 years, never had a problem. Had to take the missus to hospital with a hook in her thumb though😳

Fish Fish Fish Fish Fish Fish Fish Fish!

You don't even need a landing net most of the time as you just lean over and pluck the bigger ones out with you hand

I fish with a hand line and often have 4 mackerel and a large Pollock fighting on the line. I just lean on the A Frame and pull them in.

We have repaired a lot of ribs and sibs, can't ever remember fixing one that had been damaged by a hook.
Have fixed a Sib with severe rat damage after owner rolled it up and put it away for winter with bait still in it.

Cheers for the responses - part answered in the thread and not fishing for anything more than a bit of free lunch - hand line or rod?
