NRS Gigbob Personal Watercraft

It's frameless! 2009 Editor's Choice Award from Fly Fish America Magazine; 2009 Best New Gear Award from Outdoor Canada Magazine. A personal fly-fishing boat that can be rowed and is rigid without a frame. The patented frameless design means you can fold it up and pack it on your back without having to break down a frame. Fifteen square feet of flat area on the GigBob deck gives you plenty of room for all your tackle, cooler, and extra rods. You can stand on the deck without fear of tipping. The pontoons are wide and flat providing excellent stability with a shallow draft. You slip right over rocks that snag a rounded pontoon. The comfortable seat and built-in foot pegs give you full support for an all-day fishing expedition. Easily detach the pontoons with batten attachment system for an even lighter weight kickboat (36 lbs.) for stillwater fishing. Comes with: an adjustable padded seat with back pocket, Carlisle 7' 2-piece oars with sleeves and oar rights, oar plates, oar mounts, oar locks, springs and split rings, oar rests, two Easy Access Tackle Bags, stripping apron, and a carrying backpack. Repair kit and K-pump included. 5 Year manufacturer's warranty. Dimensions overall: 8'L x 4'W x 17"T. Deck: 6'6"L x 3'10"W. Full package weight: 67 lbs. Capacity 400 lbs.

"Pricey ... but well worth it if you intend to use a pontoon with some regularity. The NRS Gigbob is - hands down - the most maneuverable boat I've ever used. As it has no frame it is ridiculously light, but in no way does it feel any less solid than a framed boat. The deck is huge when compared to traditional pontoons, and could carry two full size coolers if one were so inclined. A drifting/perfect fishing platform."
