its no a bad solutions its seem to me very stable and you have a good look at water under you but has some weakness.
You cannot stand up and dont have a working plane, your feet are prone to wet so you need to wear wader in cold water.
I always prefer ready to water boat like kayak , pelican bass raider or round platform
Have you tried Scandi/Skagit style Spey casting yet? Assuming you are fly fisherman...pretty awesome...effortless compact casts in any wind with sink tips and big flies.
This boat does not have dual bladdered urethane, or aluminum frame, but you will have to pay $1200-1500 for those features. I don't work for this company.

other than that, looks good to go
Someone posted that he can row faster than the trolling motor. No you can't! It's not possible. The boat without motor or battery weighs near 100lbs and you can't even maneuver with just flippers. I leave mine at home.
In Minnesota, you must register the boat because it has a hull number. Doesn't matter if you never put a motor on it.
I changed from that single wheel to double 13" which made a HUGE difference when handling it.
It's a great boat though the trolling motor is too close to the center to be comfortable for me.
I've seen people mount it in the front but if you put it there it's impossible to get in and out easily.
There are all kinds of mods people have made but each one can have significant drawbacks so, think it through before you start. For example, you can raise the seat on an 8" pedestal in order to put a standing platform on it but you won't ever be able to use the oars.

Agreed....I always use Redhead Bone dry rubber hip waders with fins. Why use a toon if you don't use your stealthy finned feet in combination with oars? These modders should just buy a regular boat..
