I have an 8 ft water skeeter. Don't know how old. I bought it 3rd hand in 2009... for $120 It opened up alot of water for me. I have also run it down some rivers. Mostly the Payette in Idaho. Ran it down a class 3 called Swirley Canyon on the south fork..... It was fun. I had a ww raft with me for safety though and I had run that stretch several times in my IK. It was fun trying to surf that short little pontoon! But the big eddys were a problem. I would get stuck spinning in circles.....

Anteroman Kamm,
I too have a friend with a Sea Eagle, he loves it and yes it will accommadate two people. Just a note, he had a 4 hp on it and last season bumped up to a 6 hp, ironically the 6 hp doesn't move the displacement hull any faster than the 4 hp and yes it burns a little more fuel.

Kamm1004 I have a similar thread going but I'm looking for something that fits two people. I do have a friend who's an avid fly fisherman and swears by his sea eagle! He's taken it everywhere through the years without problems. It's the pontoon model where it fits one person, has a swivel seat, has a solid floor to stand up on a fish and cast. If I was only fishing alone, I would buy that without question.

Anteroman My personal preference is the NRS Gig-Bob, funny name great toon. They are hard to find used, (The originals built from 2009-2011, sold new just North of $1700) They just came out with a second edition and it sells at just under $1,000.
This boat can be used on rivers, with proper experience and ratings in the 1-3 range, I use it exclusively on the lakes with a 2.5 hp Suzuki. it handles well with the Carlisle oars it comes with but the motor makes it a go anywhere toon in almost any condition, again consider your boating experience when I say any condition. I have fished all 3 South Park lakes with this toon 100+ days a season and it has never disappointed me.

CF LURKER Creek company usually will have a sale on select 'toons coming up in the next month or two or so. From what i've seen is they will discount the entry level first then the next and so on. (don't recall the top end one(s) getting discounted) . Something to look for. And they are made in Steamboat Springs

CubsFan04 Thanks guys I'm sold. I've heard good things about both Bucks Bags and Creek Company. I will probably just be on the look out for a good used deal.

pikester01 From my own very experienced experiences, go Creek Co all day long over Classic Accessories products. PM me if you want 411

flyfishgeek Carroth nailed it, although I do have a 9' boat rated for class IV water and I am comfortable with it. I have an 8' that is only rated for class I, I have taken it down the lower Gunnison a few times but only in late summer when the water is low. I would definitely recommend Creek Company
