I hit that handy lil search button and read some older threads on the Pro Pioneer. It was some great reading. I had found one thread where Mr. Strahan had tested it with a host other inflatable canoes, very interesting study. I find the pro pioneer to be an excellent boat for fly-in/float out hunts. All I need to convince me a little more would be some field reports from owners....I'd like to here the postives and the negatives of your boat, thanks.
