> Or Robote, what say?
For the money and time invested in building my Robote, it's difficult to imagine any boat providing more bang for the buck. Not counting oars, I doubt I have more than $200 invested and the V-bottom is outstanding in all conditions I row in. She fits in the bed of my pickup and so gets used more than any of the boats I've built. She's fast enough to give a satisfying workout and tracks well enough to troll slowly. Many trout have met their end at the gunwale of Hypoxia.
