    Default inflateable boat rental

    I am planning a trip next May with 2 hunting partners to do some black bear hunting along the coast of the Kenai Peninsula. This will be my 3rd trip and I am looking to rent an inflateable boat with a small outboard to assist in moving around the bays. First year we did not use any inflateable, the 2nd trip we used cheap inflateables without any outboard (just paddles). We will be driving from Anchorage to Homer and taking a float plane from Homer to the other side of the peninsula and I was looking for a craft to carry 3 people and some gear so approximately an 1,000 lb capacity would be sufficient. We have been considering buying a setup and then storing it in Anchorage but that seems to be a pricey option for once a year (1 week) use and then storage costs or shipping cost to get it back home to Baltimore.

    Any advice, options or solutions would be welcome.

    I used Alaska Downstream last week and was very happy.

    Default inflatable sport boat

    What I have is a 12 foot 6 inch size boat. I put a 8.9 hp on it and it gets me around like skilak to bings, and around the lake. I have hunted bears using this boat. . I have a 15 hp also that would push it a bit faster.
    it has a floor in it and weighs 135 lbs.
    it is in our fleet if you need a boat like this.
