I'd have one (I need one.......) but I'd like to see one 'in the flesh' first.
Not a float tube, not a dinghy and certainly more substantial than the rubber duck kept in the bathroom  :z7
Sort of the bastard offspring between a float tube and an inflatable dinghy :!

H :cool:

We should call it the "Finghy"   :z18

Cool name for a piece of fishing gear :z3

I can see the oars being good for getting from A to B and then, like with pontoon boats, you use your flippers while you are fishing :cool:

They do another one which is like a cross between a kayak and a float tube, but I'm not so sure about it :z3

I'll be selling one of my Sparton float tubes soon, probably about 150 if somebody wants to reserve it :wink

Looks cool Mike. Google Dave Scadden (think that's the spelling) pontoon boats. He's been doing something similar for quite a while. Lots of options.

Living with deep, full breaths is the way of the trout. Fish, it seems, are the ultimate teachers in breathing.
