    Just look at that cheap boat. No wonder it looks like it is going to sink. I wouldn't even buy that boat in the picture. Cheap, Cheap.

    It is either a TU or a Costco. At any rate as you put it....a CHEAPER boat.

    FYI, so I talked to a friend about the difference between the Rogue vs the Outfitter 300, if any. On the Costco version, the frame is lighter and feels weaker and on the floats, the pvc is much thinner. He said that it was a noticable difference, even though the cosmetics of the two toons were the same.

    This was his opinion and not my personal observation, since I have never seen the other Costco model.

    Stefan,

    You probably wouldn't be interested in a pontoon kick boat would ya? The bad part is that it doesn't have oar attachments at all. I am looking to sell it possibly.

    do you sit upright in them ? or is it like sitting in a float tube , might get it for my dad , because if i get that pontoon he will be b*tching at me from shore if he only gets to stay on shore

    my brother and i do have a lund , but i'd like my own pontoon with a trolling motor , espicially for electric motor lakes like Beaver lake

    Here it is and I will go $175 on it. You sit upright on it and it is easier to kick around than in a float tube, where you are submerged.

    No worries mane. Since I have used it once and then I got one with oars, so I am undecided if I should sell it or hold onto it.

    BM, the oars work fine for bass fishing. rowing them are VERY VERY easy. just my .02, i am eventually getting one for mine, but the oars suit me fine for now.
