Redesigned with padded seats and even more floor space, Uncle Buck's 10' Pond Prowler is the perfect boat for quietly reaching those hard-to-reach fishing spots in total comfort. Constructed from rugged, high-impact ABS plastic, the Pond Prowler has internal ''cut-to-fit'' block foam for flotation and a wood-reinforced, ribbed floor for strength. The easy-to-maneuver Pond Prowler's ''deep rib'' hull ensures the boat remains balanced even in rougher water with two anglers standing and constantly shifting their weight. Incredibly easy to transport, the 10' Pond Prowler weighs only 130 lbs. and is 48'' wide which is the same width of a full-size truck's bed between the wheel-wells. Pond Prowlers are pre-wired for a trolling motor and are outfitted with corrosion-resistant aluminum seat frames, padded folding swivel fishing seats, molded in trays, and the rear metal transoms are reinforced with wood. Maximum weight capacity: 600 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by She's a keeper! This is my 3rd one of these fine little boats. The Pond Prowler is a updated version of the Bass Tracker Bantam 3X. The 1st one, my X got, the last I still have and it's in good shape after 20 years, you heard that right, a 1994 model still going strong. I keep my boats outside but always covered with a tarp. That's the key to long life. Don't listen to the negative things like leaking. They don't leak unless you put a hole in them. They will get a little water inside from condensation after a while. I added screws to the end of my sponsons on my old boat and got about a ¼ cup of water out of her after a couple years. I think that was mostly water that leaked under the sonar main unit when washing her. If you leave the boat out in the weather all bets are off...it is plastic but thick plastic. Now the new one I've had out 3 times this winter so far and love her as much as the old. I love the removable storage/bait box and that I can slide the seats anywhere in the new version. I'm not crazy about the rod holders. I miss the rod box the my old boats have. I suggest you put a foot control motor (Motor Guide Bull Dog is a good one) in it if you use it as much as I do and the 10ft model is the way to go if you have 2 persons and foot control. The old 9ft got too small as I added that and my 1st mate and I seem to have grown some too. I also added marine carpet and Velcro'd my sonar unit and transducer this time...works great so far and NO holes have to be drilled. I waited and waited for this thing to go on sale....they said it never would....but guess what...not a couple weeks after I bought mine at full price, then it goes on sale. Get it while the price is good guys. She's a keeper! February 1, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by not up to standard I bought this 10' boat in May 2011. It has been sitting outside on my boat ramp since. I didn't buy a cover for a number of reasons but figured the boat would last many years without one. Recently I noticed that it has already cracked between the cleat and the drink holder. I tried to pick it up to turn it over and it had about 3 gallons of water inside.This boat has only been in the water 3-4 times and there has never been anything tied to the cleat. No one has ever walked on the sides. This is totally a manufacture defect or poor quality.I had another brand 2 person boat that was also kept outside and it lasted 15 years before it started cracking. I realize that if they made it thicker it would weigh more but I would rather it last and be a little heavier. Otherwise I like the boat. It is a good size with plenty of room for 2 people. Cushion seats are comfortable.Just wished it would have lasted longer. By the way after I got the water out and sealed the crack I broke down and bought a cover from Bass Pro! October 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the RIGHT THING!! Bought it recently and have fished once with it. I am a 75 year old in 8 more days. Some back problems and I unloaded it from a 4 X 8' utility trailer with tilt. My 2004 Ranger does not have room between the wheel wells. I tilted it, slid the boat off and did not have to use the wheels to transport it to the water. Loading it was no problem, just get the front on the tilted boat and slide it on. I did cover the trailer with a 4 X 8' 3/4" treated plywood. Bought a 50lb thrust Bass Pro Prowler. Did fantastic! Got a small hand cart to push the 60lb. battery around in case I cannot get close to the water. Love the padded seats, rod holders. I included all of this info, to suggest the things that made my trip great!! Caught 4 nice bass. All of this cost me about $1500.00. September 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 10ft POND PROWLER This Prowler has more than enough room for two people.Light enough to load and unload in the back of your truck, but i decided to get a trailer for it, makes it way easier not having to load and unload boat. I have fished out of 8 footers but this one is way more roomy and stable. I put on a 5 hp Mercury and 55 lb Minn Kota endura c2 trolling motor.... Watch out fish here i come. Only thing i should have done was order the shorter shaft 36 in,even though the 42 works just fine. June 25, 2013

Is there a way to get a replacement dry storage box (or a second one, for that matter)? I see only a trolling motor outlet and seat frame for this boat available online, so it leaves me wondering about replacement parts.

To determine the correct oar or paddle length take half (1/2) the distance between the oarlocks and multiply by 3, then add 6 inches, which the total is the oar length. Thanks

durability on dry ground

Details: 
Is it safe for adults to climb into the boat on dry ground? I worry about 200+ pound people wanting to climb over in it to try it out and there isn't any water to absorb the shock. Will it crack the plastic or break the foam insulation?

There is not so I tie to my trolling boat thumb screws. Plan on adding an anchor device once i figure out how to mount it and not hurt the boat.

I usually tie the anchor on one of the cleats while fishing. They are pretty strong and well connected to the boat, so you won't have to worry about ripping them off.

Hi,
I have some questions. I never owned a boat and so this is new to me. I am looking to buy the Uncle Buck's Pond Prowler 10 foot boat. Sounds like this boat is great for ponds but ponds don't usually have a boat ramp or dock. So how do I go about getting the boat off into the water, especially if I am by myself and have no one to push the boat out towards the water? also once I get a float it will probably be to shallow to drop the trolling motor yet, and so how do I go about getting to deeper water to where I could then use the trolling motor?

Thanks for your advice,
Dan

A: 
I take my prowler to the pond on my pick up. I slide it out bow first and place that end on the ground with the stern on the tailgate. I then lift the stern and walk sideways until clear of the tailgate and sit the boat down. I drag or push it to the water, put my gear in and shove off using the paddle to get me away from the bank. It is heavy but as long as i am careful and pick an entry point that has grass, it launches easily.

Great first boat! I have been in a couple ponds, so this is what I do. I can usually back my truck near it. I find the shallowest entry and wear duck boots, bare feet etc. I bought an oar for 10 bucks in basspro. I jump in with the troller in the upright position, push off..this boat floats in 6 inches of water. paddle a couple feet, then drop the motor and go. -that's my experience.
