    Thank you. Second vote for Saturn. A bit heavy but I imagine that translates into thickness and a tougher boat

    Solo hunt,
    distance you may have to travel in the boat say one lake to another,
    would you have move camp at any point?
    Canoe if the plane can handle it would always be my first choice. 6 or 8 k is a easily covered in morning of poking along.

    Found this while searching canoes https://www.google.com/search?client...5G61ZEspM,st:0 there are very light. A bit pricey for my pension...
    No one on their death bed ever said; I should have spent more time at work.

I was hoping for recommendations or comments on what guys are using and what they like. There are lots of options on the market these days and I am trying to compare some of the offshore brands with cheaper pricing to zodiacs or what i would have traditionally associated with high quality. This boat wont be used very often, so although it needs to be durable and dependable I don't need a new $5,000 inflatable. Also any advice on pricing would be great. Obviously weight is a consideration. I have been looking at getting a lightweight pack raft for a different type of trip, however that wont work for this trip as we need a high weight capacity and a transom rating of at least 6-8hp. Thanks very much for any help!
    Fix the old Zodiac up for his last trip then burn it to reduce weight before you Fly back out to Civilisation.

    Cheers
