Thanks bowriter. Most of the small and shallow lakes up here you are not permitted to use any gas engines and some even wont let you use an electric motor. It is because of that, that I like the boat. And unlike some of the narrow canoe style boats used here, which I hate, it has a flat base. Perfect for me!

I’ll look into it. Thanks bowriter.

Be warned, the actual Pond Hopper brand is very hard to locate now. I'm not even sure if they are still producing boats. However there are several similar brands out there right now that make a fine watercraft. If you can't find an actual Pond Hopper look into Bass Hunter boats or something similar. I've got a Bass Hunter similar to Bowriter's Pond Hopper. Also, Bowriter is right. Not made for paddlin'.

Excellent picture.

Thanks John, I just figured that out too. \:\( I found the website and yes it looks like these boats are not meant for paddling. Still we have over 500 lakes here in the Merritt area, hence the slogan, "Fish a lake a day for as long you stay”. For some of these lakes I could use a boat that works well in shallow water with a trolling motor.
