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.
- 7.75 ft long
- 36 inches wide
- 14 inches deep at the frontof the cockpit
- 12 inches deep at the rear of the cockpit
- 45 to 55 pounds
