Bought it during deer hunting and never had a chance the rest of the fall last year to hunt out of it as I was hunting big water then out of my big boat the rest of the season. I did take it out on my dads pond though and I'm not sure Id want to be on too big of water with it IMO. Nothing bigger than a larger pond for me. I heard about how stable it was which was my number 1 selling point but I didnt think it was all that stable? Ive only had it out once and maybe Im a wuss but I thought when I stood up it seemed a little tipsy. Not as bad as a canoe or anything but I saw a video of a guy standing on the side of it with no problem which I wouldnt have dare done. Maybe it just takes a little while to get used to as Im used to my big boat now with walkable floor and what have you.

Rated for 610lbs and 9 horses. It has a nice camo paintjob, no leaks, anchor lock, etc.
Now the modifying begins. I want to put some sort of deck for my pup, as well as cup holders haha.

This is all new to me. I have been told by a few people I know locally that I should shoot for 48-55 pounds of thrust an a transom mount.
