This is a fun boat for family. It's heavier than one can handle alone, and takes longer to inflate and assemble at the dock than I had anticipated, but it's a great boat for the price. And much higher quality than less expensive brands you find at the local hardware or variety stores. I bought a 3 hp electric trolling motor, which is fine for fishing, but I am already interested in getting something larger for a little more speed. It can handle a much larger engine.

I have had so much fun with this pontoon fishing boat. It arrived with all the accessories shown and was fun to put together. I take it on camping trips and thoroughly enjoy fishing from it. The only problem I have had with it is its ungainliness for one person to transport once inflated and put together. I plan to buy the little trailering attachment for it eventually. I have recently put a wee trolling motor on the back of it and some skegs for directional control. Both of these accessories have greatly improved what was already almost perfect. Buy this boat and go have some fun.

this is a great boat for one person and some gear, very well made, but the bags are poorly made, its not a big deal, the boat looks like it will last for years, pumps up fast.
I looked for this boat for months and the best price was on Overstock.com, it was about $100 cheaper than any other site, plus free shipping! great purchase
I purchased this boat to store in a travel trailer and fish with my children in lakes that we camp near. It is easy to set-up (I brought an electric pump to save time) and light-weight to move. I also purchased a 30 thrust minn kota motor for the raft and it works quite well to manuever the boat around the lake. Great for trolling and more battery life than is needed for a day of trolling around the lake. Plenty of room for my two younger daughters and myself to fish comfortably.
I have guided white water rafting and would never take this boat in white water. It is narrow and not self bailing. It may float, but is not made of durable enough material to handle repeated rock scrapes.
Overall, the boat is easy to inflate and deflate, comfortable for three (although I did put five in it for a stroll around the lake to try it out), seems durable, and most importantly......FUN for the family.
