Took the 9 footer down the a local river last weekend. Spent two days on the river and she handled fine. Parts of the river where very low and for the most part we just glided through. At the end of the second day we did put a hole in the floor chamber but where still afloat. Will probably patch here up and take her out again soon. Fit me and a friend (both over 6 feet tall) 2 backpacks with food and water and 2 rods in boat. We had a tent but we left it behind thinking we would not have room. Once on the river I sat with on my bag with feet forward in the water, so we probably could have fit the tent as well.
Advantages - good price, durable, work well in deep or shallow water.
Disadvantages - If you manage to fit 4 people in it you won't have room for anything else, won't make great time paddling

All my friends laughed at me when I told them I was buying an inflatable fishing boat. I bought it anyway and am glad I did. Myself and my son who is 8 use this boat all the time floating the Allegheny river fishing for smallmouth and while guys are standing on the shore wishing to get by the overgrown weeds during the summer we float on by giggling of course. I purchased the motor for it and am amazed at how fast this thing pushes this boat. I lay down some old plywood on the floors so we are able to stand and it works great. If you want a river boat or a small pond boat and are on a budget, this is a great buy. Oh and we also have a fishfinder which makes it a lot easer to spot baitfish, rock ledges and other structure.

ive had one for a while i use it on no moter lakes that are hard to get to cause it weights less then a kayak but this thing is hard to patch and thats not good for an inflatable fishing boat but it is to transport and you can fit it with a 3hp motor

Very good boat. Was Looking for noninflatable boat in a "reasonable" price range that I could use to take the kids fishing in the "man-made" lake behind the house, but I was only able to to find one and two person kayaks and canoes and inflatable boats. So I was a little concerned about going inflatable. But this 12-foot boat is well built and sturdy, and comfortably held myself and my three kids (the oldest = 11 years old) and some fishing gear, but was still light enough to easily pull it to the lake from the house.
The only negative is the oar holders are small and do not open and close, so I could not get the handle-end of the oars thru them, and I was unable to find oars anywhere that did not have a "handle" on the end of the paddle. And without the oar holders, one person cannot row the boat by himself.
Otherwise this is a great boat, and I agreed with all of the reviews that I read about it proclaiming such. But if they redesign this in the future, perhaps they can take this into conderation (or at least sell oars where the handle can screw on and off).

I am wondering if the bottom of the boat is of rugged (durable) material or does it feel it will pop with any poke? I want it for canals and lakes but am worried about crocs and alligators in south fla.
Here is what I found on Florida DNR web site: Yes, all vessels used on public waterways with any kind of motor must be titled and registered. However, you might call to check by calling 1-888-347-4356.
