Re: Getting back on the oggin.

You have hit the nail on the head with a hoss! An excellent all round boat, it can go the distance and is very playfull on waves. If your going to be paddling any distance, stay away from playboats.

Get the Jackson fun float. Its designed purposely for that boat, and because of its unique horseshoe shape, you don't have to worry about them falling out. Plus the prices are competitive as well!
