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 gsab awsome little boat
have had this boat a few weeks and used it a bunch. great stability and good handling. excellent for fishing the small 200ish acre lakes near my house. very comfortable for my wife and I with plenty of room. stable in windy conditions and takes very little water to float. (6 inches). the only thing id change is the anchor cleat location. they are on the sides and in my opinion they should be fore and aft. my wife and I have no problem loading it in my Silverado but looking for a trailer to make life easier. great boat for less than 1000 after shipping and taxes. delivered less than a week after ordering too

I've taken this boat out on the lake about 15 times now and have tried different configurations. The lake I primarily fish is around 650 acres with a fair amount of sunken forest. It is also a "no-wake" lake. I started off with a 40lb Minn Kota Endura Max as the main motor and mounted it on the back. It moves the boat just fine, but the most efficient "high speed" I got out of it was at about 30% to 40% throttle. You can push faster, but you are using up battery a lot quicker. I decided to get a 3.5hp Mercury for moving longer distances and save the battery for fishing. When I mounted the electric motor on the front, the boat was really squirrely in the wind because the back end of the boat was sticking up. Mounting the 3.5 Merc on the back fixed that. In short, the best setup I have is using the gas motor to move places and the electric motor on the front to fish. I also place the battery in the back and use the built-in wiring to connect the trolling motor. The boat is very stable and is a good fishing platform. I use both seats in the boat. It is a little awkward moving from one end of the boat to the other, but you learn to sit in the seat and spin around to get to where you need to go. I have no qualms taking the Pond Prowler out into any part of this lake, but there won't be any big waves either. Once you figure out how you want to set up your boat, and balance the weight distribution a little bit, you will find out it handles itself well. That said, the wind will always be an issue. It will push you around, but you find a way to make it work. Also, I debated between the 2.5 and 3.5 hp Merc (they are both the same motor, with the 2.5 restricted a little). I went with the 3.5 to be on the safe side. The way the hull is designed, there will be an efficient throttle setting for moving. I found with the gas motor, there was very little difference in speed between half throttle and full throttle. On the no-wake lake, I generally run from 1/8 to 1/4 throttle. I also discovered the small motors are mostly made by Tohatsu, including the Mercs. Very happy I got the gas motor to go with the Pond Prowler. I haul the boat in a 5x10' utility trailer as it makes it easier to get the boat in and out of the water. The boat itself is easily handled by one person, but it gets a little heavy when I load both motors and all my gear. Almost forgot, I bought a Garmin Echo 151dv fish finder. I mounted the transducer on the electric trolling motor. I picked up a sealed 12v 8amp battery, stuck in a tupperware box, and mounted the head unit on the lid. Works well!

I wrote a review in September 2013. It is still a great small boat and I have not had any problems except I did lean back too far and pulled the four bolts out of the seat. I called the store in Ashland, Va. and spoke to a salesman and advised him I had used the boat only four times since August, however I have used it six times, I had forgotten two of them. I asked him about Bass Pro replacement without charge. Told me if it had been only a month or two, he could do something for me. I am sure he did not believe me, which I was wrong, but only two times. He said he was approx. 6'-4", 240 pounds and did not have that problem. I bought one yesterday and it was delivered today. Super fast and a good deal. I have had nothing but great service from that store. Just a little concerned that he seemed not to believe me.
It still gets a 5 star from me! No leaking!
