I think you're right about the sun, I've found meself agreeing with both Poly & Mollers in the same day
Non of the RIB solutions proposed so far, give the OP what he wants, i.e. a fishing platform

Rule#3: Tha' can't educate pork.

can I ask a stupid question and ask why you are not going for a cathedral hull fishing boat?

something like Shetland Fishing Boat | eBay. v stable when the waves are hitting you side on. amazing build quality. lots used for fishing, can be towed by megan/ golf size car.
