    Sid, I do not understand what you are saying. What type of pontoon boat and where would be helpful.
    Thanks

    This link in his post wasn't put there by him. That is done with the website software. It recognizes certain words or phrases and automatically provides links it thinks are related. I will us pontoon boat as an example. I did not insert any kind of link in that last sentence, it just showed up automatically.

    He didn't link that. The link was put there automagically by Skumwords. (advertising that benefits this site).

    Just remember all boats are not created equal; thus the wide difference in pricing. Consider how much money you are able to spend, where you will be using the boat, and what kind of storage options you have. Bladder material, skin material, overall weight, comfort of the seat, oar construction and rowing configuration are all things to consider when buying your boat. Pontoon configuration is also important. If lake fishing, rockers really stink. In white water, they're great. Straight pontoons track much better in still water and don't turn as quickly in the wind. Take a thin plastic bladdered, cordura covered raft down a rocky, fast flowing river to see what I'm talking about.

    There may only be a hundred to two hundred dollar difference between a boat that won't serve you very well and one that's perfect for your needs and your budget... or maybe the cheapest one will fit you perfectly, and you'll have saved the coin, or have a boat when you couldn't afford one otherwise.

    True that! Don't take the cheap one on the parks…….you will be walking……..seen it happen many times. Not to mention people think they are toys and float down places they probably shouldn't.

    Can we stop calling these boats "pontoon" boats? They are not pontoons, they are tubes strapped to a frame to form a cataraft. Say it with me now....CATARAFT. Thanks.
