Robber....how 'bout making your own Marshrat....I see that R&R Sports has the plans for $45...I am sure the total cost of materials and your time will be alot less than the cost of a pre-made boat....especially when you add in the freight charges!!!! Heck, it'll be a fun project.

Another alternative is to build one with a foam core fiberglassed over. Pretty easy to do and for a 10 foot boat with a 42" beam and a sit-in cockpit, your cost will be maybe $275....epoxy about $65 a gallon, fiberglass cloth another $50 and the foam will be about $100.

the marshrats are niiiice. lots of people use them around here. i really am looking into getting one or something like it. Aquapod's are similar.

thanks for posting that info on getting plans to build one...i was just going to ask if anyone had heard of them. might be a better way to go than the 800 bucks or so for a "factory" boat.
