    I would think not stable enough to put scafolding on unless you are only talking about one layer of it....

    we have one at my yacht club for member use. it is very handy for alot of things but the problem it that they are pretty light and movement on the platform tends to shift it around underfoot rather quickly. scafolding . . . yikes . . . that would be pretty scary unless you could really secure it well. even than i'm not so sure. I its your only option i guess it could be done but be careful

    We have had some luck with RIB Boats because the tubes keep the boat stable, We have filmed on the water 2 sections
    above the deck, I don't know how high you want to go.
