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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
