Default I want one of these really bad.

... But I can't find out anything about it on the internet. It is called a Power Float and it has a Minn Kota motor built in.

Now that is a wicked cool watercraft. If you can find out who the distributer is... I'll see if we can get enough interest to make an opening order and I'll let you have one for wholesale plus shipping.

Cliff, that is where I first saw it and got the picture.

Steve, you got a deal! I haven't found out yet and it isn't for a lack of trying. Nobody I talk to seems to have ever seen or heard of it. I'll keep trying! I want one!

I've been trying to find out more about this but nothing has come up in a search of the internet. The main page mentions that it is no longer in production: Float Tube Fishing so we may be out of luck. I'll keep searching.
Thanks,
Terry

Anybody checked out Minn Kota? There has to be a boat or Minn Kota dealer somewhere who has heard of it. Where the heck is the prop, under the nose?

Minn Kota's web site is one of the first places I check. May have to start emailing or calling Minn Kota dealers like you suggested. I would guess the prop is under the back end with some sort of control system setup in one of the arms. Just a guess.
Later,
Terry

I had emailed Perry, he is the guy who wrote the artical about it. He didn't have any more info then he had put on that web page. I would think that a water craft like that would be popular. It must have been too expensive to produce if they went out of business.

Well one of the guys at another forum who is resourceful found out some info and it looks like it never made it past the prototype. It's a one of a kind. He posted the company info but they are out of business. One more interesting thing he found.....
