This boat is a great alternative to a two person pontoon fishing boat. Light weight. Easy for two people to carry long distances to and from water. Also packs small, inflates/deflates quickly. Works well with small lightweight square frames and short oars. No Trailer needed- fits fully inflated in back of pickup truck. With thwarts removed, has plenty of room for two with light gear and dog. Handles great on small rivers with not too difficult whitewater. Easy to portage if needed.
