The Poke Boat is a boat for people who are afraid of kayaks and feel even a canoe is on the tippy side. It is the result of intense design and testing. The boat can be used with far more confidence than a canoe while experiencing fishing, bird watching, waterfowling, and stream floating. The deep V bow and stern allows excellent tracking. But is is 28 lbs (22 lbs in Kevlar and 18 lbs in Carbon fiber) that makes the Poke Boat the choice of fish and game biologist, wardens, and wildlife photographers, along with other outdoor professionals. All have found that a STABLE lightweight boat allows them access to the outdoors when no other boat can! The molded removable seat plus the back rest/rim allow comfortable boating. Optional, adjustable foot braces allow maximum comfort when using the boat for long periods of time.
