    FWMUD had the lake pro or one like it.
    He sold it for ??? I think around 1400.
    It would be cool for some places and dont take a great big motor.

    Yeah I was looking for something small to putt around in some coves and pond fish in when I saw these. It looks like I may be getting a 1648 for fishing without the family. The wife is wanting a 20 plus foot pontoon but can't are won't make-up her mind as to which one. I voted for a tri-toon, but will wait to see.

    Our weight + equipment adds up mighty fast for us BIG fellows.Also,be very cautious in big gator country.It won;t float a BIG gator that wants your fish.I saw a gator lay claim to one of those plastic type pond boats that was pulled up to the bank while the owners decided to go for dinner.He decided to stay and sun.The owner and his buddy had a time convincing that gator who was the owner of that boat.They loaded up and left.I was looking forward to watching him crawl aboard while they were out in the pond.Not only are our Fort Stewart solders tough,they are well trained.They know when to attack and when to retreat.peewee-williams

    I saw both models of the Pond King at the Tulsa Boat and RV show last spring. They looked like they were very well put together and that quite a bit of thought had gone into their construction to make them actually a fishing boat rather than just a toy. Their rated weight carrying capacity seemed quite reasonable too.

    I made one of the small ones. Look in the libary to see how I made it. I use a el. trolling motor and it works out well. I only use mine for ponds. Might be cheaper to make one. And it can be done in a week end.

    Those small pontoons are pretty neat but I can't see me giving up my 3 seater jon boat

    Yeah I thought they were pretty neat also, but for that money I can get a 1648 jon for what I am wanting to do.
