Excellent. Struggle with placing wood platform
Just love the mobility and how stable this boat is. You can keep it simple or add to this boat and make it your own of what you want on board.
I've had my 285FPB since the summer of 2020, and I absolutely love everything about it. I was reading some of the recent reviews from new owners and noticed a few complaints I had when I first got the boat. I also had problems installing the floorboards, but I found a set of plastic Trim and Molding Tools at Harbor Freight, and the wide one works great to get the floorboards under the rubber hold-downs. Also, the more you install them the easier it gets. The other issue was tracking with the trolling motor, which many people have mentioned. I found an item from Bullnose Products, which is a bolt-on rudder, and it works great in keeping the boat going straight and makes handling much more maneuverable. It's a little pricey, but worth it for me, and I have attached a photo of it installed on the Watersnake motor. This boat has opened up a new world of small mountain lakes here in the Pacific Northwest, that I was never able to get into before, and has been a delight to own.
Brilliant product! Easy to store and easy to transport. Best of all it provides a supper stable platform for fishing. I can stand up to cast with confidence and know that I have no risk of losing my balance and end up, upside down minus my fishing tackle. There is not a kayak in the world that can provide this level of safety and convenience for fishing.
