Inflatable with outboard

Any of you Georgetown owners carrying along an inflatable boat with an outboard motor? If so, which type of boat and where are you stowing your outboard motor? I'm thinking about the one below. I think I can stow the boat in one of the larger compartments. Not sure where to put the outboard motor though...

Yes I had about a 10' inflatable, took a while to inflate. I had a battery driven prop motor hung off the back. Had to carry a hefty 12 volt battery to power it. Therin was the biggest problem. The boat was heavy and unwieldy, the battery was heavy also. I had to to carry stuff in shifs to the waters edge, sometimes a ways away. Was fun but just not practical for us. Gave away the boat, still have prop motor in the garage, now about 20 years old. Can't chuck it - too expensive.

Not sure if this helps. Just saw a guy this weekend with a Seaeagle kayak. Pretty expensive, but man it was nice. It inflated in a few minutes, and compressed down to the size of a sleeping bag. Very durable material, and it had a mount for his troller. Very nice.

We decided on a 12ft inflatable with a 10hp motor. Just hope I can fit it all in one of my compartments . We're taking a trip to Panama City FL in a couple of weeks, I'll post some pictures then.

The inflatable boat worked out great. It fit perfectly and wasn't too bad to get in and out of the RV. My wife, two kids, and our dog probably traveled at least 20 miles in it exploring up and down shell beach. Here are some pictures...
