thought i'd post up some pix of my new ride... after i sold my toon.

it's a 12 footer running a 5hp o/b. been on the water a few times and i looooove it. it's got a very rigid inflatable floor that's sturdy enough to stand and fish (if the water is not too rough). this little one is sleek enough to paddle like a kayak, or row with oars, and totally portable and easily handled by one scrawny grey haired guy.

pix were from her maiden voyage with the torqeedo electric on the transom... without oars.

i've made some mods since...

I love that ride

I love that ride

When I saw that up at Detroit, I wanted to get one. I was very impressed with how easily it moved through the water with the motor that was on it. Now we just have to hijack some fish with it. Break that puppy in proper

yeah, i like it very much... and it's cheeeep! :lol::lol::lol:

okay, let's see if i can catch up here on replies...

mlt: saturn does make good boats. this one looks feels equivalent to zodiacs but at 1/2 the price and this one especially, is the narrow type, so it's easy to row and paddle as well as run a motor on it. tracks real good too.

kobo: want to go float sometime with me in this and you in the toon?

auto-f: yeah, the 5hp really pushes this, and i never went past 1/2 throttle with kim on board... :D

fishnquest & dan f: thx, and dan, it's made by saturn. this one is a kaboat (kayak/boat) google it and you'll see. i got it from boatstogo.com. their customer service is awesome. this 12' is rated for 2hp, but i have a 5hp on it, and it's fine. they have larger ones that'll take maybe up to 10/15 hp.

troutski: gdmphfgph...:lol: (dang bugs... like picking raisins... eeew) :D

raincather: i like tinkering with pvc - lightweight, waterproof, economical and infinite possibilities...

hawk: i'll prolly have it in the front seat... the boat really does wheelies when i crank that 5hp.

metal: we gotta go do that sometime soon, before the river gets too crazy.

markcanby: the pix shows the electric. i have a gas 5hp for it as well.

tb: ninjas can see in the dark... no light needed. :D

That's a very sweet ride. I really like the fact it's a 2 person boat that can be car-topped by one person. Many, many fish shall fall to that boat.

I have to ask because I don't want you to get in trouble, but do you have registration numbers displayed when you run the motor? I only ask because I don't see any, and I'd hate for you to get a ticket if you didn't know you needed it.

yes... as soon as you put power on a boat, the state wants your mullah :D and at the time the pix were taken, i was waiting for the reg and title to arrive from salem. i did have a temp reg in my wallet, so it's all good...

Ok, I hated saying anything, but I'd feel terrible if I hadn't and you got a ticket.

yeah man... I am a bit busy with an upcoming move, but I am down.
I need to get a trailer so I don't have to assemble my boat on the bank.
