I believe that quote is from Jonathan Landeen, Alex's dad
Yeah, my father told me once "If you haven't peed your waders, you haven't been fishing long enough."

You can either deflate the pontoons and leave them strapped to the frame and place the whole thing in the back of the truck, or you can unstrap the toons while they are inflated and just stuff them in the back with the frame.

It usually just depends on what kind of boat you get, and how much of a pain-in-the-***** it is to unstrap your pontoons.

If you find a good deal on a used one you can try it for a season figure out what you like / dislike and be in a position to make an informed decision next year on a new one. If you got a decent deal on your used one you can sell it for about what you paid or more.

Good luck
Dan

You can't go too wrong on any pontoon that you can afford. It really opens the waters up to you and beats the **** out of trying to paddle across the lake in the old float tubes that have your butt hanging down in the water creating drag. I can get from my truck and on the water in less than 10 min because I just keep everything in my pontoon. Half the time I dont even bring my paddles. In the valley no need to even use waders most of the year. Decide if you want your pontoon for lakes in AZ or if you plan on taking it on rivers or the Ocean. Decide if weight is an issue or if you plan on carrying it a ways. Do you plan on breaking it down all the time or just leave it inflated. Once you have had one for a year or two then you will know and want to spend more money on a nicer one and the features you think you would like. Thats my 2 cents.
