Excellent stable fishing platform.
- Comfortable adjustable seat
- Ample storage space
- Permanent seat
Overall a joy to fish out of. Very stable even with the seat in the high position. Easily maneuvered. Tons of dry storage area as well as rod storage via the center hatch.
It comes with replaceable mounting inserts for your rod holders, fish finders etc. If you mess up or decide to change up your mounts you can just replace the insert and start over. This thing does catch some wind, so a rudder would probably be on the list if you paddle in wind often.
The boat is heavy and can be managed by one person, but it is an effort. I love the battery bag mounted in the front hatch! It keeps you from having to glue in some sort of holder. With that and the built in transducer scupper setting up a fish finder is a breeze.
You can fish out of this thing all day and not get wet or a stiff back or legs.
