He, he, he sure sounds like it huh. No, just a very satisfied and very enthusiastic costumer.

Personally, the Avenger is a boat that I hope to buy this spring. But some of these other boats have some great reasons to purchase as well.

It's like going into a great fly shop and only being allowed to buy one fly...aaagh

That Assult looks great. It must not be available. I couldn't find a price for it. Some good sale prices on some other Scaddens.

Jimmie, third one down under frameless. (but I know you could do better than the MSRP, it's showtime)

What are you going to do with your feet? With no foot bar, your feet and legs will be dragging in the water and oars will be just about useless. Next, what would be used for oarlocks?
Float tubes have been around long enough now that just about every means and type of propulsion have been tried. So far NFO/Scadden is about the only one that has succeeded with the Outlaw Escape.

Default Re: pontoon versus float tube

I have one of each and find the tube more useful on prairie lakes that are typically windy. It is a V-Tube however, not a round one. I have had to walk my pontoon boat back home along the shoreline more than once in strong winds. I just find the tube more versatile and quicker to react in.
