Uncle Buck's® Pond Prowler Boat - 10'
Redesigned with padded seats, fishing rod holders, removable dry storage box 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, fishing rod holders, dry storage box and the rear metal transoms are reinforced with wood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by leathaface Great fun I have had this boat for a couple seasons..50+ uses. I rigged the 30/30 troller to the front transom and used the inner wiring to put the battery in the back to disperse the weight of me up front. I have a Dodge Dakota and the bed is a perfect fit and it is only a 6 ft bed. At any boat dock or shallow entry(ponds etc.) just take the battery out real quick, throw the boat in the truck(or water), put it back and the weight of the battery alone keeps the boat stable for you on the road. I love it for lakes, ponds, canals...I can go all day long on a third of a charge. Charge the battery when you get home and you are set. I use the box for tackle, and all kinds of necessities etc. The straps on the side hold 4 poles, and I can bring a buddy no problem. I love this thing and get a lot of onlookers that dig this little rig. The only issue so far is other, bigger boats and their wakes.. Just hit em head on, know your limits, probably go to a calmer location, and just take care of her and she will keep on tickin. Shallow and narrow spots are very maneuverable. I enjoy mine greatly and think you will too!! April 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by MellysHeroes Love my Pond Prowler I have the 10ft model and really like it. I too experienced the water in the hull issue and contacted the manufacturer. Turns out it is an easy fix. Simply remove the metal transom mount (on either end) which will reveal a drain hole. Prop up the opposite end and drain the water. Over time, condensation builds up or if there is a crack, water gets in the hull. I now do this as part of routine maintenance. Not a big deal. April 16, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tscarbrough Taking on water. I've had this boat for less than 9 months and used only a handful of times with light use in and off of boat ramps. It's already developed a small crack inside and has water in the hull making it too heavy to do anything with by myself! Very unhappy. January 1, 2013

Details:I know there are two eyelets at the front of the boat, but is there anything towards the stern I could tie an anchor to?
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,
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.
A: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.
Details:Since I will be adding a trolling motor, and my state requires all boats with a motor to be registered, I would require a notarized bill of sale to be able to register the boat with the state. I know the stores usually have notaries on-site, but not sure about online purchases.
A:The MSO (MFG. STATEMENT OF ORIGIN/BILL of Sale) is mailed out separately from the order and should arrive in about 1.5 to 2 weeks after the order has been placed. If you do not receive your paperwork, please call the customer service toll free number at 1-800-227-7776. Thanks
Details:I have an 05 Ford Ranger extended cab. I know I'll have to haul with tailgate down but just wondering how well it would fit.
A:I have a frontier crewcab and it fits perfectly in mine. Not sure if the Nissan Frontier is wider than the ranger but I hope this helps.
A:I have a Honda Ridgeline and the bed measures just over 48" wide and 79" from the front of the bed to the edge of the tailgate. My 10' prowler sticks out about 5' from the bed and 18" of that rests comfortably on the tailgate.
I'm going to get a set of towing lights and rig them to the back of the boat for visibility.
I'll haul the dollies and motor inside the boat.
I'll let you know if I get tagged. ;O)
Details:Hi, got some water inside the boat, now it's about 20/30 lbs heavier. Seems either the wood or foam got waterlogged. Anyone ever have to take the boat apart and replace the stuff on the inside? It seems to be molded, so there really isn't a seam to pull it apart from. Love this boat and can't afford a new one, so repair is my only option.
A:Mine is only about 9 months old and used only a handful of times. Mine is taking on water as well. I wouldn't buy this boat if oi had it to do over again.
Details:i have this boat was wondering if a 5 hp is to powerfull i know it says 5hp max but is that to powerfull or will it do just fine dont wanna spend 1000 then it not work out
A:I would not put a gas powered motor on mine (10ft). I have a powerful electric trolling motor and it works great but I cannot fathom puttin a 5 horse plus gas tank in mine. Gets a bit crowded with 2 fishermen as is and the weight would concern me.
A:•Engine capacity: 5HP
Once the boat is fully loaded, a 5HP motor would be a great choice for this boat. On windy days or if the water is rough you will need a 5hp motor to be able to get you back to your location. However, you can use a smaller motor but not over 5hp. Thanks!
A:I have found that it is much better on the front, use the inner wiring, and put the battery in the back. You can control the rig much easier.
A:There is a one (1) year warranty on the Pond Prowler
