I am doing research for a new float hunting boat for moose and elk in northern BC. I want to bring my two sons, need to handle mostly class 1/2, fly in on occasion, and need to be able to motor out across long lakes at the end of a couple hunts. I am still looking into round boats (Sotar moose raft or similar) but think the long lakes favour a large cat with 12 or 15 hp outboard.

Does anyone have any experience with the Quadcatt for such a situation? it looks very similar to the cougar, but lighter. They advertise the tubes at 88 pounds and the frame at 72 pounds. This makes the quadcatt very competitive to a round boat with frame for weight. It also looks to have all the capacity I would need.

Thanks for any ideas.
