Uncle Buck's 8' Pond Prowler is the perfect boat for quietly reaching those hard-to-reach fishing spots. 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 constantly shifting their weight. Incredibly easy to transport, the 8' Pond Prowler weighs 100 lbs. and is 48'' wide which is the same width of a full-size truck's bed between the wheel-wells. The Pond Prowler is pre-wired for a trolling motor and outfitted with corrosion-resistant, aluminum seat frames, folding swivel fishing seats, molded in trays and wood-reinforced rear metal transoms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! I recently and took it fishing a couple times already. It was easy to load and off load out of my 99 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner. The boat fits perfectly in the back of my truck. It's light enough for one person handle. It's the perfect boat for for small lakes or ponds. The shipping was fast via Fedex freight.. It arrived in 6 days after I ordered it. Just in time for the opening day. I highly recommend this product. April 9, 2010

Details: 
When loading the 8' Pond Prowler in my pickup truck, the seam got hung on the latch of my truck bed, where the tailgate latches on the side. For a brief moment the boat was suspended at this point, which caused the two different colored plastic pieces which make the boats body to separate (approx. 4" along the seam). They are still pressed together, but you can feel with your fingers under the seam that they are no longer glued or welded here. Does this need to be repaired. If so, how? Thank you.

Get in touch with Charloma Fiberglass directly if they made it. Many years ago I made a boo boo hauling my little jon pontoon and they helped me out like I was a neighbor needing a hand. I hope the service has not changed.

Q:

8' vs 10'

Details: 
OK, I am trying to decide between the 8' and 10'. The advantage with the 8' is, it probably can fit in the back of my minivan with the seats folded down (a 4X8 sheet of plywood fits). Plus, I could handle it by myself. The 10' obviously gives you more room.. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I have never owned a boat such as this, but when it comes to these small pontoon boats and johnboats.- Are you required to get insurance or register them with the state?
I'm guessing it depends if you put a motor on it and how big the motor is??

thanks

Depending on your state's regulations, any craft that is mechanically propelled and used on public or state owned water must be registered, regardless of length or motor size.
