Boats quad pontoons are perfect for larger lakes when wind can kick up out of no where and for tracking with minimal effort.
Rapids S Fork of the Teton
Panther performs well through difficult/strong water given the extra weight and girth of a quad design.
Panther on the S Fork of the Teton
Put in of the S Fork of Teton. Boat was loaded for extended fishing and kept pace with smaller/more nimble dual pontoons. Extra space as a result of the quad pontoons = extra gear/stash points and added security if/when a pontoon goes down.
Outstanding Cataraft, Reliable & Stable
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have abused this cataraft for the last 5 years on flat water and rivers. While it is billed as a flat water and wind performer (the quad pontoons = low profile and steady tracking) this boat has been very reliable in moderate rapids (Class 2) and keeping pace with smaller and taller pontoons.
Specifics: @65lb with capacity @ 400lb with aluminum frame and 9ft length. Pontoons roughly 10in diameter and the fabric is 500 and 1000 PVC with 4 valves (one for each pontoon).
Extended use and Reasoning for purchase: low profile is key when dealing with lake or canyon winds, quad pontoons = extra security should you get a leak or major incident during multi or singular day use, load capacity can handle multi day trips with extra gear, length contributes to tracking and support for larger guys (6 foot 3 and plenty of space and comfort).
Extended Use Feedback: this has been a completely reliable and useful tool tackling small and large fishing objectives. Multiple days on the S Fork of the Teton when weighted down with gear and tackling severe rapids (for any cataraft) sealed my opinion. Frame is easy to assemble and the pontoons have been incredibly reliable (patching is easy if you have a puncture). Rarely rely on the oars and cheap flippers and the boats ability to track provide great fishing. I have ditched the anchor and motor mount to save weight. Low profile doesn't alleviate extra effort in wind (Strawberry or CO lakes), but it definitely helps and is great for shallow water. I would definitely recommend pairing with a small pump and both oar tethers and stops. An emergency kit includes all you need for repairs and a seat bag helps create more space. The frame bags have ample room and the rear frame can accommodate multiple dry bags and a cooler. Recommend buying a rod holder to carry an extra rig and/or reliable storage while rowing or tackling larger rapids/wind. Matter of preference re small boats, but I cannot say enough about this cataraft!
