Have you ever considered an inflatable fishing boat, rather than a traditional “boat"? They cost much less money, and are extremely portable. If you're looking for a boat, it may be time to give and inflatable boat a look. There are kayaks, personal pontoon boats, and motor mount boats that all come in inflatable versions. Seriously, there are even inflatable boats that you can mount small engines onto.
Personal pontoon boats are a wonderful way to fish a river. They offer speed and versatility that walking and wading can't even compare to. With the aid of a personal pontoon boat, a person can cover miles and miles over river in a few short hours. These inflatable fishing boats offer an angler the ability to explore water that otherwise would go un-fished. This is especially true in the west, where rivers experience much less fishing pressure than other areas of the country.
Inflatable Kayaks can be wonderful for running rivers with a heavier flow. As a matter of fact, some inflatable Kayaks can be used in up to class 4 rapids! It's true, although I would suggest that only experienced boaters try running rapids of this caliber right off the bat. Inflatable kayaks can be wonderful for those of you who fly into remote fishing camps. They fold up small enough to fit right on the float plane with you. Inflatable kayaks are also great for campers, seeing as how the kayak will fit into a backpack, so that it can be carried with you. Yep, if you like to hike into remote lakes, an inflatable kayak might be perfect for you.
There are even inflatable motor mount boats. My family has an inflatable motor mount boat at our cabin in northern Canada. We also have a small 5 horsepower motor for our inflatable that pushes the boat around quite well. Then when it's time to leave, we simply deflate the boat and store it in the basement until the next year. It's a beautiful system. The cost of one of these motor mount inflatables is considerably less than a traditional boat that can easily cost into the high thousands of dollars. We find our inflatable to be a cost effective alternative.
Inflatable boats come in all shapes and sizes in this day and age and offer boaters added conveniences that traditional boats just don't offer. If you're in the market for a boat, it may be time to give inflatables some consideration. A quality inflatable may make boating necessary for many people who thought that boating was beyond their budget.
