    A friend of mine has one of these. Never been out on it before but it looks kind of like a motorized canoe. Whenever the bass start biting again he's going to take me in it. I like the black one with the poling platform. Anybody ever heard of these or owned one? If it fishes like it looks like it should I think I'm in love.

    No , I've never heard of or seen one of these. Personally , I'd use it but with a PFD and pilot it in a seated position.

    I've never seen one in person, but i've definately heard of gheenoes. If i remember the story right, a NASA scientist came up with the design. For a small boat they are SUPER stable, hence the poling platform. You can stand in them and everything. They are not unflippable, but from what I hear, they are close.
