It sure looked like he was having a good time and it reminded me of an old saying....

That's pretty good that it still balances good with you on the back end. Where you fishing from the board? If so, how well does it do for a fishing rig and would you recommend it for short fishing trips or could you outfit it for a long haul?

I use it fishing. Its nice because you can see so well standing up. I sometimes take a crate with a wooden lid and use it as a chair. Or just take a lawn chair :lol: The spot I usually fish is about a 3 mile round trip and thats no problem as long as its not windy. Your body standing up in that thing acts like a sail. So if its a windy day I will take the SOT. As far as a long haul, as long as its not to windy. Can put a lot of stuff on it because its a big flat 14 foot long deck. I usually wind up hauling everybody's crap around. My longest trip down river was about 7 miles, pretty good workout.
