The Prototype is a nice little boat.  It was the first boat I built that actually floated right.   The first hunt had 3 of us rotating out of the Prototype.  As it was, the ducks wanted to land right next to the Prototype when we weren't in it...  Also a great little fishing boat.

This boat is as stable as any commercially available 8 ft john boat prams out there.  It has a covered deck, sides, and back which add safety.

The Prototype is a really great small pond boat.  It doesn't have the width of the Hybrids but it is also 10 to 20 pounds lighter.
