Jerry, this one is a Fish Cat Panther. Dual tunes on both sides with not much rocker. It likely will track well and be more stable than a fully rockered pontoon with 20 or more inches of tip rise. All I'm able to do is compare it to my 8' boat that I just sold. That one was a blast, handled great but had a lot of rocker. I've straddled that one's seat and cast (not recommended of course). I can't afford much more than that. I know the shape of the tubes with minimal rocker will present some shortcomings in the rivers but so far my fishing has been more in lakes so there is a trade off. I'm also told it tracks well in the rivers but will take a bit more line setup and will drift a bit slower. I'll have to deal with that too but I'm excited to get a bit larger boat that still will be managable. Not sure what all I'll do to it, if anything, but I have visions.
