"Not often at this point in life that I actually received more than was expected in an online purchase. Opened the box and the quality of the product just jumped out of the box. Was somewhat suspect of the foot pump, til it did, in fact, inflate the boat much faster than I at first figured the time and effort to do so would be. Actually pleased with how easy the foot pump was to get the job done. Took the first trip last Sunday on the Hiawassee River in East Tn. This is a TVA controlled river and when I launched the boat there was no real discharge thru the turbines. Looked like a long day on the river with no current. Figured I came to fish and low water would let me get to places where there was a lot of fun to be had. An hour into the float the water was released and the fishing was put on the back burner and the boat was put to the test. Have fished and floated this stretch hundreds of times in a Fish Cat. Your boat made my old standby seem like a toy. After a bit of feeling out the boat, I left my friend and his kayak in search of the biggest stuff I could find. Huge rocks, stair steps, six-foot waves. Had never searched out the big stuff before. I actually believe it would do class five water, but not with my old but in the seat. Best day ever on this stretch of river. Really pleased with this boat".
".......The seat platform being ridged like a paddleboard is the best idea ever. Next time I will strap a cooler on the back and explore the calmer water. Needless to say, you have a happy customer".
".....Such a good deal, I have no complaints. Needless to say, the river will be run and the backwater will be explored". Thanks, Abe Aziz
"I have purchased four pontoon boats this year; the first two were sold within a week of the only time I used them. The last two are Skykomish Scadden boats. The are unquestionably the best pontoon boats made. Further, you can be assured if you have any problems with your boat he will resolve them!!! His boats are the most stable and secure, period. I'm 6'2", 245 lbs. Thank you Dave."

"I keep my Double XX right by the river in the back yard. It is ready to go when the fish move up. It's a great boat!"
