    Tacklewarehouse is currently stocking a few. They look cumbersome and have several options. I currently have the Fishcat 4 Deluxe and I am very pleased with it.

    Cool with the oars. How well do the oars work i.e. when backing though the wind, tidal flow?
    Thx!

    I also took a look at one at the show. It's heavier/larger than the Fat Cat but appears to be made of more rugged material. I did like the metal cross bar as I tend to slide down on my Fat Cat and have to wiggle back up the seat as the simple apron isn't much in the way of keeping you from sliding off. Nice rig.

    I can say the oars work great as I cramped up on my kick back against the wind.

    They are roughly the same size as an inflatable boat maybe 14". I just rigged up an anchor system with quick release and my old fish eagle portable fish finder. It's rated for 500 lbs.
