Back to the top for more tips and suggestions. I just met with Josh and picked up his used Outcast PAC 1200. It is used but in pretty good shape and should do me and whomever I take along quite well. So, there are no teflon spacers inside the oarlock fitting. I've got a set of Cobras that I'll put on the craft, but want to put the teflon sleeve in first. Where can I find such a teflon tube pretty quickly? How large of an anchor does a craft like this take? Is a craft this size more capable of anchoring in slow moving water? I have never anchored my 8' or 9' pontoon in a flowing river, only taken it to the bank and then fished on foot from there. I know the negatives of anchoring in heavy flows that can drag down a pontoon, does that apply to all sizes of craft. Should I just throw my 10# er on there and keep using the craft for access only and not even contemplate anchoring in flow? I know the front angler can fish whenever they feel like it, but I'd like to get some fishing in too. As I think of it more I'll probably opt to anchor on the bank and then put boots on rocks like normal and use the craft for improved access. This is one of the older PAC 1200 that had the bottom of the lean bar welded to a cross bar in front of the casting platform. Apparently these frequently broke off and fell into the depths of the water. I'll be conduit creating some type of front lean bar. If anyone has retrofitted your older PAC 1200 and would care to show some photos of your work I'd appreciate it. Riseform, tell me more about that storage unit behind the front caster's seat. I think that would be a great place to string up some sort of storage unit so that I can reach the stuff easily (if I have my wife up front and I'm managing the rigging and retying of her gear). This one has an elevated rear deck, not the one that sits low between the pontoons. It attaches to the rear sides by the rower and rests across the tubes. I think that I will consider putting two seat mounts back there for my little ones for when we go to the lakes so they are close to me. (They are small, so they are not heavy and this is not a river running configuration) Thanks in advance for anything you've got to offer. I hope to get it wet soon, very soon.
