Anyone out there have any experience with the water master kick boat. It looks like it might be similar to the new "Abel Craft". I wonder if this type of boat has all the dissadvantages of a float tube and a pontoon boat. Or is it the best of both worlds. Eddie

WaterMaster Power Flex Fins--one size fits all. Lightweight, good kicker for pontoons, float tubes and WaterMaster rafts. Dealer inquires welcome

But the site is down. I'm curious - does it incorporate a full front end unlike pontoon? A shop affiliate, the Rod Builder's Workshop, carries a raft that is a hybrid between the pontoon boat and the kickboat. I'll find out what the brand name is.
