“1995! My son is now 23 and still loves his poke boat!”
"Light weight, carry with one hand, go into the shallowest waters. First got it for fishing the oyster bed laden channels off the Intercoastal in Canaveral Seashore. Moved to Boone, NC. Used it yakking the New River, and small mountain lakes. Now in South Gate use on local river, and swamp like lakes. Tell everyone about it. Probably been 25 years, it still looks great."
"I never made a better investment. It needs a minor repair every now and then, but, after all, I've had it for a lifetime. Forty years is probably about right… I've been on the same lake in three foot waves with no trouble at all. Today I own four boats, all for different purposes, but that Poke Boat with its two inch draft is wonderful, great fun for adults and children, and irreplaceable."
