  3. Chironomid Fishing Boat?

    Here's an answer to the original question. I have tried the boat. It is extremely stable, moves very quickly and very easily even in a breeze. Perhaps best of all, you can stand up (easily, comfortably and with stability equal to a pram). Stonefly, Monger, bcube and Bron, Joe is giving you a great opportunity to try one out. You should take him up on it.
