    It was just like yours, a ply dinghy about 11 feet. I later gave it to a friend, and he eventually turned in into a garden bed, when it got a bit too leaky.

    If you ask me about my passion, I'd like to reply "fishing". Passing time on a lake holding a rod is may favorite pastime. After passing a huge amount of time being assistant of my grandfather and dad in fishing, I've finally purchased my own a few weeks back. Considering the fact for beginners, I've purchased the Outcast fishcat 4-LCS. This a fishing float tube comes with enough space to cast the line. This U-shaped boat weights 16.8 lbs and can carry up to 250 lbs. It provides high seat for longer casting, stable platform, portability & easy to store, and large storage space. The bad sides are- there is no holders for rod and cup and packing away is difficult for rigid foam seat. My overall experience with this starter boat is good.
