Yeah, I've seen those before. Of course, a canoe purist up in the north country would probably tell you he wouldn't be caught dead in a boat.

They have never caught a 30" fish on a fly rod in their LIVES!!!

30 inch stripers on a 9#? :eek: Sounds like Livin! :D Out here, it's 18 inch Browns on a 9'5#.:ban:

I just like the way the boat looks on the Helio's pontoons<DROOL>!

A friend of mine was the dealer for Porta-Botes a few years ago. He claimed that they were almost indestructible!

I bought a Porta-Boat when they first came out from Sandy K Enterprises CA, it must have been over 20 years ago. The boat is always strapped to my float ready for any lake. I have never had any leaks or other problems, the seams (staplers) are still in good shape.
Mine is a 12ft with no stern, she's pionted in both ends, the new ones have a square stern , much faster and better when using an outboard engine
The new boats have an excessive amount of floatation foam wich makes the boat very bulky. Remove the foam, especially from the seats and you'll have the perfect watercraft for the bush.
