I seen in some of the pics you've posted in past threads that you have a Intex mariner boat. I'm curious to know, is it worth buying one of those? I bought the Seahawk II and has an issue with one of the floor chamber seams splitting apart causing a nice bulge in half of the floor the first time I took it out..so I'm looking to possibly exchange it for the mariner if it's a decent boat.

yeah man great boat this is my 3rd year w/it. baught it from crappytire for 500 i think it has gone down now..use those fold up camping chairs and fit 2 w/gear ..or 3 w/gear but sitting on side quite compfy..can also stand up and fly fish no prob very stable.
i have had to patch it 3 times just small leaks. once on the keel.. and i think i have another on it but still holds, just cant over inflate the keel! you want some wiggle room.but have had to patch them in the last year... Great boat overall for the money i use it at least once a week. i puchased a motor mount off ebay for like 10 buck plus ship. and use a 36lbs minn and make wake on 5. i pack i up in the trunk of my chev cav cuz i dont have a truck yet. All and all worth the money

Nice, I picked mine up on Saturday....it was $599 which i think is way too over priced but whatever as long as it lasts me a while lol. Mine had a small leak right out of the box, but i filled it with some bunk epoxy that I bought from crappy tire..so I'm gonna try taking it back and getting something that actually sets up properly. It still seems to be holding air though in the meantime. I was able to take it out yesterday and it was pretty good. Gotta get myself an anchor though :D

bc fishmaster 1000, just curious....what kind of glue do you use to patch up your boat?

i've used a patch kit wich works great ...but on the keel i'm using this stuff like shoe goo but it is marine strength it bonds and seals and is flexable i think it's made by goop they got like shoe goo,plumbing goo,ect crappytire in the marine section.

I was looking at the Marine GOOP stuff, was torn between that and plastic weld epoxy. The epoxy seems to be working so far... Where did you buy the patch kit? I didn't see any when I was at Canadian Tire. My Mariner came with some sticker type patch, which I wouldn't even bother using cause I can tell just from looking at it, that it's crap.
