    Re: Scadden Pontoon

    Wow, this is ironic. My old man and I just bought a red McKenzie Drifter last night. It's setup for a 2-man. I have a question for you about these boats if you wouldn't mind answering me. Can you convert it into a 3-man just by adding a 3rd frame section? It seems that's how they are designed.

    Good luck on the sale, sounds like a pretty good deal.

    Ryan,

    I think you can, but I bought mine as a 3 man set-up from the start. There's a little more to it than just a frame section for the 3rd guy. There's a seat, pedestal, floor and leaning brace. I'm also not sure if there was or is more than one pontoon length. 13' or better is the number you'd need for a 3 man.

    It is a good deal for someone who's looking for a versatile inflatable. I originally bought it with the idea to use it in my business. I used it a couple of times and decided it wasn't the best for commercial use. Since I bought it at wholesale I'm passing on the savings.

    Joe

    Thanks for the info. Yeah I realized about the seat, pedestal, floor and leanbar are all part of the equation. I was just trying to be brief when I wrote 3rd frame section. The boat is a 13' pontoon and in looking at the frame it does look like it's built to convert.

    I'm very excited to use it. At first down by me on the Middle Delaware for smallies (my Dad lives along the D) as well as the Middle Lehigh for trout and smallies but I'd like to branch out to trips up to the W. Branch and Main Stem. My old man has had some leg and foot problems the last few years and its not easy for him to wade many places anymore so I'm excited to be able to operate this boat and get him into fish & cover water a little more easily. I'm going to be the permanent oarsman I think.

    Again good luck on the sale, these boats are awesome and becoming much more popular in the East with the general angling public so I think you'll sell it in short time.

    You weren't by any chance fishing on the WB this past Saturday, were you?

    Ha, no why, did another douchebag go right over your drift again?

    I'm obviously new at it but I do have common sense and try not to be rude to other anglers on the water anyway. I did pick up on the proper etiquette of making the effort to pass thru behind wading anglers or other boats working rising fish.

    The guys in the scadden that you mention, Joe, passed us with no issue. I think they were trying to get off the river.

    The guys I'm talking about were in this beast. They pulled up 30 feet behind Macfly and started casting then the other douche got out of the boat and went downstream (slightly) of Macfly. There were fish everywhere on the river this past Saturday but these guys had to squeeze in. UnFing believable.

    We also ran into another team of idiots in a drift boat (Hyde). We were going to go through one of the side channels. Someone in a pontoon boat was there so we anchored up to let him fish and figured we'de wait until he was through. These other two meatheads came through right on top of me. I had to ask them what they were doing because they were so close.

    There really should be a river etiquette class before anyone is allowed to float the river. If it was recreational people, I don't really care but as fishermen, they need a lesson.

    Here's a nice brown I caught just upstream from where these goons were. That water was freezing!!! Thanks Paul!

    Dennis,

    Nice legs...

    The guys I ran into were different guys. It was actually Friday now that I think about it. They behaved the same as the guys you ran across, or rather ran across you.

    On another note, you should have seen the guys on the West Branch on Saturday. Two twits in jet boats come screaming up the river. They screamed right through water that several guys were fishing nearly hitting one of them. They had fly & spin rods with them. These are the boats they had: Mokai Manufacturing Inc.
    The PA Fish & Boat Commission is currently investigating.

    I got to get one of those, I can fish and my buddy can water ski at the same time.
