Possibilities of an inflatable boat for fishing

So, a boat for fishing and hunting should be easy to transport, easy to install and, if possible, easy to carry by one person. Boats and yachts, perhaps, will wait – we will talk about an inflatable boat.

Inflatable boats for fishing (even keel boats) have a shallow draft, which makes it possible for them to walk in shallow water. Independent sealed chambers in the boat’s inflatable tubes ensure safety on the water.

Speed is not the last factor influencing the choice of boat. There are models with a mounted transom that allow you to install a light motor, as well as models of boats with a stationary transom with the possibility of using a more powerful motor.

A wide range of additional accessories for inflatable boats makes staying in them more comfortable during fishing or hunting – these are various kinds of canopies, tents, removable soft seats, auxiliary waterproof bags and covers.

Advantages of a PVC boat for fishing

Long gone are the days of inflatable rubber boats. They were more demanding to maintain, the boats were covered with talcum powder during storage, and their weight was noticeably higher than that of PVC inflatable boats.

PVC fabric or polyvinyl chloride is a modern synthetic polymer, which is a compound of carbon, hydrogen, chlorine and other components. PVC boats are resistant to mechanical damage, chemical attack of fuels and lubricants, ultraviolet solar radiation, heat and cold water.

PVC boats for fishing have good maintainability – you can seal a hole or cut either on your own, using a repair kit from the kit, or by contacting the manufacturer’s service center.

An important factor in choosing a PVC boat for fishing is the ease of storage in the off-season. It takes up little space when deflated and can be stored on a balcony, garage or shed. PVC boats for fishing do not require special winter parking, etc.
