I have been very pleased with this sled, fishing skinny rivers like the Wynoochee & Satsop, larger rivers like the Cowlitz & Columbia & out to buoy-10 trolling with high-speed downriggers, waterfowling the shallows of E.WA and the open expanses of the Columbia. The displacement of the hull makes it very stable and it floats balanced & high in the water with 4-6 aboard comfortably and safely. Waterfowl hunting out of this sled with a fully enclosed Avery popup blind is a dream, with ample room for 4+ hunters/shooters, a pair of Marsh-Rats & loads of decoys (and a dog or two with the customized dog-step-platform at the transom). The on-water picture of the sled with blind up, dog on platform was taken from one of my Marsch-Rats during a 4-man/2-dog hunt in E.WA. This sled platform is a real workhorse. It would make an excellent guide platform, or serious recreational sportsman's sled.
