my uncle and buddy both have the 10' model, both of them say that it was well worth spending the extra money to get one of these compared to other models. talk to the guys at tnt marine in the abbotsford auto mall i know they carry them, as that is where we bought my buddies for him.
I own the 10' model in Reg width. Its a very stable one man boat. I have had another person on the boat with me on a few occasions and have had no problems in terms of stability. Mind you we both weight about 170 each. I also cartop mine as well but it is on the heavier side.
My husband and I have one though not sure the size, likely the 12'. Its great for both of us to stand and cast and we haven't hooked each other too often! Its very stable. We have had three in the boat fishing but its a tad tight. My husband can lift the boat on top of the truck on his own with a little effort. With both of us we can manage it quite easily. We love it!
My 10' weighs about 130lbs and the 12' is around 200lbs. Its not that bad to cartop. Its a litte awkward to lift on my own but I just lean the boat up against the rear of my jeep. I then grab the stern and push it to the top of the roof racks. It works for me so far.
The 12' are a little on the heavy side, but that's because they use a heavier gauge aluminum that doesn't need ribs. The welded construction with no ribs mean a flat floor that's comfortable to stand on and has no snags. A couple of good friends of mine each have the 12' wide version, and they are awesome boats. Lots of room, very stable, and well built with quality materials. My friend Dennis has a new one with a new 15HP Mercury 4 stroke short shaft...and the thing just flies!
Expensive compared to other boats...but probably the nicest ones on the water.
