We have the small 9.4 an dI think Blufloyd has the largest version. We got ours in 2002 in a special package that included the MinnKota trolling motor, but it was about the same price as the pond prowler things. It's rated for a 5hp gas motor.

Here's why we like it better: rides in the water more like a regular boat, with a much lower center of gravity (I can stand and cast, too), comfortable swivel seats instead of those chairs that look like they came from the laundromat; and built in livewell and nav lights.

We liked it so well, we went back to the same manufacturer for our canoe. - Roberta

Have a buddy who owns one and he has had it for several years now and he loves it.

I had one until I got the boat I have now. I used it for several years and never got a crack. I used to slide it down the ramp and drag it behind the truck up the ramp when I was finished fishing.

Mine boat was an 8 footer. It was easy for me to flip it over and put it in or take it out of the truck.

If you are planning on having a partner fish with you, I would go with at least a 10 footer. The 8 was a little crowded.

I could stand an cast all night long with no problems. I would fish around marinas at night with it and caught my biggest bass to date in it. (10.58 lbs). I wish I still had it.

Call Connect-a-dock in Adair, Iowa. They make the bass baby. Only one model as far as I know. It is just under 8 feet long and wider than most other 2 man plastic boats. It has wheels recessed in the back and is made very sturdy. The first two man plastic boat I bought was in 1996. It wore thru the bow where I had to drag it on the concrete ramps and was hard to load by myself. I made ramps out of 1 1/4 inch treated boards I bought and now I roll the boat in and out of the bed of my pickup. The only thing I don't like about it is the "boxy" way they made the bottom of the boat. It hits the bottom too far from the water's edge if I am trying to land it on a sloping bank or a ramp. Makes for a long first step. They have a web site and you can buy directly from them. Same price as the dealer offers but you can go to the factory and pick it up. I really enjoy mine. Lip ripper
