    Well, I wanna get out on the water, especially Hoover and possibly bigger stretches of the darby creek and maybe even the olentangy...but this question concerns the use of those inflatable pontoon floats that you sit on top of. Has anyone tried one, is it worth it? Are they allowed on local waters around here? Let me know what you guys think...If anyone has used one, the biggest concerns I'd have are tipping(don't wanna lose the gear) and how this thing handles in the wind...thank you

    you will need registration numbers. i have never used one , but i did have one of those plastic bass boats and it was safe as long as you the wind was calm, wouldn't want to be in it when the wind suddenly picked up.the pontoons would prolly be safer in a little chop.

    I have an unregistered float tube where you are about half in half out of the water and I dont think it is necessary to register it. Of course in a float tube you kick yourself so its all in what the individual can handle. If you are like da king then you better forget it, if you are like me then you can go for hours!
     
  5. you would prefer the feeling of being on the water rather than in the water. :p :D :D :D
