    I have what probably seems like a silly question. I'm in the market for a boat and I'm curious how puncture resistant most inflatables are? Is there a chance of hooks damaging the tubes? I would be looking at a larger craft >14'.

    Thanks

    I've never had a problem. If you take care of them they can last along time. This one I baught from Da:thumb:na in 1986 and it's still going strong !!!

    Yeah, there's a chance. A small one. With the size boat you're considering, I think it's a calculated risk well worth taking. I have a very light fabric Achilles that is over 20 years old, and - knock on wood - still not a single leak in it, and I use it for fishing all the time.
