It's supposed to be one of the better ones on the market. It's one piece and spray foam filled. The cheaper ones are two piece and have foam blocks in them. We shall see. I can tell you that standing on it I was very surprised of how sturdy it is. It is super easy to load and unload and move around as well.

Hadn't caught a fish yet this month. I have a turkey permit so it will be hunting instead for the near future. Maybe I'll get lucky and get one quickly so that I can get back to fishing. I have a new rod and trolling motor battery to try out!!

The boat looks wider than I expected. Take a picture of you standing in it. Then I can double you and imagine me standing in it lol.

What’s the beam size on that thing? Like 55” or 54” it looks as wide or wider than my job boat. :-/

Nice West, I have fished out of one just like it in Alabama, and it was surprisingly very stable for a 300 lb guy. ~c~  The guy that owner it had the T/M in the front and a fixed rudder in the back that folded down.  The rudder slowed the back end from blowing around in the wind.
The rudder helped.  Just raised the rudder when fishing thick weeds.

A guy I used to work with’s  dad had one and we fished in it years ago in a lake in an industrial park in Pompano. Wasn’t as bad as I had anticipated.

The pontoons are 48" so it fits between the wheel well. The top is 54", I bet it will be stable. There is a video of a guy trying to flip it and can't lol

Here it is:

I would say so. Last spring we saw a pontoon boat decked out like that. They must have a big gas bill.  lo lo

The gov't foots the bill for this bad boy.  This is a US Customs boat. You need these ponies to chase down the bad guys.

My 225 Burns 20 gallons an hour. I'm guessing those four burn 100 gallons an hour.
