Pontoon / Kick boats

As an owner of the Buck's Bag Bronco:

8' hypalon pontoons, sharp rocker, class III W/W rated, 6.5 ft oars, alum frame, molded seat w/ fold down back

I've noticed many more affordable options lately. There are several designs, suitable for stillwater, rivers, and even the Pac 1200 which I am sure would be good for flats work in the salt.

I've floated 10+ miles of river, class II, each saturday during steelie season out west and loved the rig. It was a little too bulky to walk with for too far though.

I didn't fish from it but used it for transportation from pool to pool. Fins are only safe in stillwater, and I recommend adamantly against anchoring in moving water.

Any other owners out there wanna share their findings or questions?
