    Hard to beat the old Suzuki for that. Not the best riding. But they get around great and are much smaller and lighter than the new stuff. Thats what I'd be shopping for. Good luck finding one in good shape.

        Honda 300 Fourtrax. About 450lbs full of mud and indestructible. Find them on craigslist for $1000-$3500

          Honda Recon...250cc, two wheel drive but light enough at 400lbs to horse it out of trouble if you gotta, a come-along and you're set...bulletproof too. Older Honda Ranchers are not overly big or heavy but the new 4x4s go 600lbs.

          My kid had a Polaris 90... it would move my 225lb frame far faster than I'd want to go but sticking a critter on it would be an issue.

              Recons are a great choice for a 2WD small do-it-all fourwheeler. Like other's have also mentioned, the old 300 Fourtrax's are bulletproof and 4WD, also a great choice.

                I personally would look no further than a Honda 300. Just sold the Wife's 91' this year and it ran as new. Sold in one day in Craigslist for 2800....a hundred more than I bought it for in 2000. The 300 ' reputation is no secret here in Alaska.

                    I can put that bike in my 15ft Whaler and get to where I need to go on the ocean. I imagine your 20' riverboat can handle it.

                      Ya I'm sure the boat will be fine. More worried about getting in and outa the boat. Have to rig up a couple planks I guess.

                        480 lbs is light... My Cat 500 weighs an easy 200# more than that. Make sure you take video

                          Holy cow you're scaring me. I'll be loading my ATV in and out of the truck this weekend using wooden ramps. I guess a light ATV won't hurt as much when it lands on your head!

                            We put a Foreman in an out of a boat with a set of tri-fold ramps that are 6' long. Easy as can be...there's enough stuff moving around to worry about a couple planks moving as well.

                              Don't be over looking a nice condition 3 wheeler. I know folks who like them just for what you are planning. Nice in a plane too.
