I have never been in a two person pontoon so I really have no expertise in this area so I came to the group of guys I can trust. This would be a spring time purchase so I have a while to price shop and look around. I have come to the realization that a pontoon is a lot easier to transport around than my drift boat. Plus I can take the pontoon on top of the drift boat and have two vessels for extra people or so we can cover a couple of different drifts in one day when several buddies want to come along for those umpqua or john day multi day trips. I want to be able to take my wife, who just started her flyfishing journey this summer after her three year tenure as a drift boat rower and occasional fish reeler-inner (which was completely her choice) for the past couple of years, or my 4 or 6 yr old out on the water with me. Most importantly I want a safe product because my children will spend time on it with me. I am looking for one that is reliable. I dont want some cheapo that is marginal. I would rather pay more for a company that stands behind their product. Thanks for the responses.
