Hi everyone,

I casually enquired about some inflatable boats at Katha Bazaar, Mumbai, and came to know that the Intex Sea Hawk 2 is available for 12-14K and Intex Mariner for 16K. Most dealers only have these two models.

I wanted to know how either of these boats would handle the shores of Goa for fishing near the rocks or in the Mandovi/Zuari river. Not too far away from the shore, maybe 500m away. Already have life jackets with me which I will be using, incase I do make the purchase.

Also, would I be needing any kind of license for inflatable boats?

Any advice from the experts would be highly appreciated to help me decide.

Thanks in advance!

-Anto

.Inflatables are very easily effected by wind and tidal streams and if you unlucky to catch a wind blowing west you will land up in Africa and its no joke.We had a big gemini with a 40 hp drift 35 nautical miles in 4 hrs after a engine failure since the guys did not take heed of checking the amount of fuel.Something which may help to have onboard is a" Panic box" the contents are,Heliograph(Signaling mirror)A whistle,Torchwith spare battery,smoke flares ,cyalume sticks.Let someone know where you gone fishing and when you will return.
