Sole Boat XL one man fishing boat

Postby rhouser » Aug Tue 09, 2016 10:17 am

I have been looking for a small boat to use on some of the lakes i live around, i have gotten john boats, and even v bottom boats but was never quite happy with them for number of reasons. I have seen these types of boats on the market but for 2k was a little more than i wanted to pay. I am a pretty big guy so i didn't find really a kayak that seemed right for me either. I wasn't really actively looking for one, but a late night search for boats and i came across this that was pretty local to me. It had been posted for a month or so, so i figured it was gone. I sent an offer and they accepted!! So this is my new bluegill boat. These are made in ft wayne, and comes apart in two pieces in about 2 minutes. You just wheel it down to the lake like a wheel barrel and jump in and take off with the trolling motor. I just picked it up Saturday so i haven't had it out yet, but plan on getting to the BMV to get it legal and out on the water this weekend!

Very cool. That should get you into some small waterways. Reminds me of the Tetra-Pod that's a trailer and a boat. http://tetrapodtrailer.com/

Never saw that before. I am interested in hearing how you like it once you get out.
