Outcast Pac 900
Some of the best fishing holes are the hardest to get access to, which is why seasoned anglers depend on the 9-ft. PAC 900 to get them there. Row, fin kick or put a motor on the PAC 900 pontoon boat. Then float it for the kind of fly-fishing adventures you've been dreaming about. The PAC 900 has additional cargo room for more gear and tackle, while keeping weight to a minimum. The longer length gives it more stability and carrying capacity, yet it maneuvers with the slightest fin kick or paddling. The pontoon shell is made of puncture- and tear-resistant, heavy-duty 1,100-denier polyester, PVC-coated material that covers the AIREcell tubes. The AIREcell tube system is made of durable 14-mil. clear urethane that's thermo-welded for a super-tight hold and years of service. Full-length, double zippers make removal and replacement of AIREcell tubes a breeze. The watertight zippers are rated 10 times stronger than the regular recommended inflation pressure. Each AIREcell raft undergoes a 72-hour "no-air-loss" factory test for guaranteed performance. The four-piece aluminum frame is sturdy and strong enough to handle nearly any fishing adventure. Two top-of-the-line, one-way Leafield valves prevent debris incursion and accidental deflation. Includes two 7-ft., two-piece oars. Motor mount and anchor system (anchor and rope sold separately) included. Features the best 10-year warranty in the industry, covering all the repairs, labor and materials.Inflated size: 54" x 9 ft. Tube diameter: 16".Weight: 62 lbs. Capacity: 400 lbs.Color: Green.

Pontoon Boats Checklist
||One or Two Person? Better
think carefully. Two-person pontoon boats are large, heavy and not
necessarily quick to setup. Unless you have a trailer, they can be
a pain to lug around, too. By and large, if most of your fishing
is done solo, it makes little sense to get a two-person boat for
those "special occasion."
||Check Weight Capacity. Pontoon
boats differe markedly in their weight capacity. If you weigh 250
pounds, have 50+ pounds of gear, and the boat is rated at a 300 pound
capacity, your boat will not handle well at all and will be sluggish.
It's better to have "too much weight capacity" than to little.
||Backpackable? Those backpackable
pontoon boats are nifty. But, unless you do most of your fishing
in the backcountry, most people are better off getting a larger boat
since it offers greater flexibility, more options and a larger weight
||All Those Options. Pontoon
boats have numerous options and accessories you can attach to them.
If you think you'd like to use a motor on your boat someday, make
sure it either comes with or has an accessory you can purchase so
as to be able to use a motor. Ditto for all those convenience things...such
as rod holders, beverage holders, gear bags, the list is endless.
||River Rating? Pontoon boats
are fine boats, depending on the model, for use in rivers. However,
some boats are only rated for Class II whitewater...not Class III.
And very, very few boats are rated for Class IV. So, know the type
of rivers you'll be fishing before buying a boat.
