My wife and I just ordered a matching pair of Fish Cat IR 9 pontoon boats. (isn't that cute :rofl: ) I plan to use it in the salt a few times per year, lots of lake fishing, and 5 or 6 river trips a year (mainly class II or lower unless I'm with someone more experience). I noticed that while they are excellent quality boats - they are skimpy on the options... everything is 'ala carte'. So what are some of the options I should look into upgrading first? Brass oar locks? Better oars? Spare oar? Anchor system? I'm thinking a lead ball and rope tied to the frame will do for now. Not planning to anchor in moving water at this point... Rod holder? Saddle bags? Dry bag? (kinda obvious that i'll need saddle bags and\or dry bags I guess....) Patch kit? (is there a certain kind I should get or avoid? Duct tape? ) Wheel system? (I may try to make something) Motor mount? (I have a motor - I may try to make something) Anyway - thanks in advance for the tips!
