One down side is wind... the inflatable blows around on the surface. I used mine for rivers so pulled onto shore to fish from shore along the bank. The wind was not a big deal.
But if you are fishing from it I would think that one through. Mike's post reminded me of considering the application.
How are you planning on using it?
