Inflatable Fishing Boats - How Bad are They?
I can't get a "real" boat this year...
How are inflatables like the Intex Bass Boat or Sevylor FishHunter?
- Why don't you look for a Used John boat
The best way to get the best deal , is yard shopping, look at yards ,
and look for a john boat that has weeds grown up all around it, like it
has not been used for years, Aluminum boats can sit for years and years,
and be just as good as new, even if the paint is all peeled off.
I know guys that have picked up these type john boats for under 100
dollars, they just knock on the door and ask, many get them from women
just wanting them out of the yard, but have not thought about selling
them. It may take 20 or so over priced ones before you get your deal you
want, but any john boat beats an inflatable. most have oar locks, or you
can go by a pawn shop and pick up a small trolling motor for around 20
Nearly every old, used, stripped, john boat cost less than a new "good"
inflatable. and these can be set up nice. a little at a time, by adding
seats, fish finder, out board, foot controlled trolling motor
Something to think about anyway, unless where you fish, only an
inflatable will do
- They are ok on small bodies of water (ponds or small lakes) - just have to
watch your hooks. I would put them in the same class as a belly boat and
would use them in the same bodies of water.
