Which tender for a RIB

I would welcome advice on what to use as a tender to a 5m RIB. This can be one man only. Thanks. Nic

Emm. Isn't the beauty of a RIB that you can bring it in close to the shore?
Low draft, Soft tubes, very manouverable. Especially at that length!

Anyway, would you be taking the tender with you?
and what would you carry in the tender? Just yourself, or including petrol cans and backpacks? Kayak is what i'd go for...

Hi, Well for days on the beach I use a towable toy we have, you can row it as it has rolocks! I have used this for a weeks holiday in Salcombe did get some funny looks rowing out to the mooring
Also have a 2.65M Yam with a Malta out board (great fun) this is what we use for longer holidays when the boat is on a mooring!
Have also towed it at 20 knots with no problems
