    Due to the price tag associated with these, I probably wont be getting it till after knee surgery. But at least I'll have plenty of time to get the mods done during the latter part of recovery.
    Been watching some older videos, as well as a few newer ones of a fellow that used to be here before moving to Jefferson City. He fished the local river here a lot, and I think It will be there for maiden voyage...have to wait and see...

    Those are made with cheap fabric. Seldom do they last more than 1 or 2 years and are nearly impossible to patch. Up grading to better materials (2-3x the price though). Maxxon and Saturn would be my bare minimum starting point for inflatable pontoons. Also minimum of 9 ft and 17-18" diameter if you plan to stand (and have feet out of the water)



    Here is mine without the leaning bar on it (10 ft 18" diameter tubes Aire Bobcat/Outcast Pac 1100):

    It is what it is. If taken proper care of Things last for quite some time. Abused, and they wont last no time. However I thank you for your input.

    Looks like you have made a few mods on yours as well. Looks very nice, but so much out of my price range right now. Maybe down the line sometime. I have found a trolling motor modification that eliminates all the twisting around, as well as the PVC fence in front with it mounted up there. It can be found on askmaniyak on YouTube. It's completely wireless, and compact. I believe that's what I'm going to do.

    Bob and Dave. If properly inflated, it's next to impossible to be sitting in the water, i.e., wet seat. The rails that the seat is mounted to is a straight piece that goes side to side from the black rails in the first picture. The XT version does not have a swivel on the seat. However, you can add one as the bolt pattern is the same as any boat seat. And if you're still a bit to close to the water, you can put a seat post between the seat rail in the frame and the swivel. The downfall is the higher up you go, the more top-heavy the craft becomes. It's simple science. But many people add a 7" riser without any kind of I problems.

    Found one for sale here in Springfield. Not exactly the one I wanted, but made by classic accessories. It's one they made for Trout Unlimited. Still 9' pontoons, and has the TM mount on the back frame. Say's it was inflated and used a couple of times. No holes nor patches. Will go today and if it is what he said, I'll be bringing it home with me. A whole lot less than a new one. Will post pic's if and when I get it home

    I certainly admire and respect your determination to get back on the water.
    As for the raft-toon: I would respectfully point out two concerns I might have:

    (1) Wind will be a very real and ongoing plague, and;
    (2) (Top-heaviness) (with you in it) and the proneness to flip from boat wakes from the sides.

    I am sure, however, that there are a lot of situations where this would be perfectly safe and fish just fine.
