Portable boat

8 posts in this topic

I've recently downsized by cars due to long commutes and no longer have a tow vehicle, so I'm looking for suggestions for a portable (preferably two person) fishing boat that can either be car-topped or is inflatable. Thanks for the help, love the site, sometimes it's a miracle I can get any work done!

There is actually a boat out there called a Porta Boat. You can google it and see. I was going to get one a while ago but got a different boat. I've seen them around here out fishing and they are pretty cool. Not sure what your budget is, but for the money they are nice.

Father-in-law has a Porta Boat and likes it. Pretty cool thing and fairly stable. He uses it in the Gulf (inland waterway) and other lakes when using the motor home.

I recentely just bought a innflatable boat, and love it. I went to a gander, and got the "3" person boat, called, the challenger for $50. it fits two with gear somewhat comfortable. I think its a good deal.

As others have said, there's no reason you couldn't pull a lighter weight boat behind a car - something simple - bench seats, motor, battery & gas tank, but I think it'd be better than fishing out of a inflatable boat (no offense) or the collapsible boat.

here is my "new" boat. its a 68 Alumacraft and has a 6HP Johnson. I pull it behind my Ford Ranger. I really dont see the need for an inflatable. I can shove this thing on and off the trailer myself and Im only 150lbs. put a hitch on your car and pick up something like this.
