Thanks

At that price, if it holds air and is not all tattered up, you better jump on it

There are lots of used float tubes and pontoons if you shop around. I even found a nice one on AZBASSZONE...

Once you fish out of a pontoon you will never go back to a floattube. So many more advantages. Unless you are hiking in somewhere then a tube is nice.
