Here is a picture of mine from this morning. A 90% restored 1976 Aluma-Weld my buddies all call it the Willy-Weld because I used all Willy Parts when I was redoing it. The only thing left is a bow anchor system and exterior paint.

Jay,

I ordered it directly from the manufacturer, and they shipped it to me. For a while, they were listed in Bass Pro, but not anymore. It's a great little boat that combines a float tube, a raft, and a pontoon all in one. They are made in Montana by Big Sky Inflatables.

I've had it for about four years, and it is very well made.

Their web address is Home Page

I'm ashamed to show ya'll my ragged ol' fleet of two..! But it's a sit on top kayak and a Pelican Bass Raider 10ft. I like them both but the pontoon style Bass Raider,,while not big,,is as stable as a good size jon boat. Impresses me how it does for it's size. I use a 55thrust troller on it.

I'm starting to think that an inflatable pontoon'er would really be nice,,after seeing all of yours.

NICE BOATS FOLKS.

I saved every dollar I had the year I turned twelve and bought this. The next summer I had enough dough scraped together for the floorboards, motormount, battery, and the little Minn-Kota. It has served me well since 1983, although I'm starting to spend as much time patching it as fishing from it.

Wow, y'all have some nice water craft. My wife and I have a small two seat pond boat. It's an 8 1/2ft, KLM Sportsman that we use on the pond near our home. I rigged our garden cart so we could tow it 400 yards to the pond with either the riding mower or the truck. Even though it's small, we have no trouble fly fishing from it.

Thanks. In theory I do have to license it. I never even realized that until a few years ago when I was looking into getting something bigger. I never have, though, and I've never been questioned about it. I think people see it and file it in their heads under "pool toy."
