Took a few trips before wife realised that tubes were more comfortable.
I think I'll end up just using it for when kids are on board, in the front. If adults only, I prefer the boat with no twart at all. Like you point out, the tubes are really comfy. So the bench (as I call it) is a bit redundant in the back.

I see you have the 360 FR. How long have you had it for? Any thoughts to share? Thanks!

New pics!

Thought some might enjoy a fews shots of the zodiac and torqeedo combo.

1. Boat on the roof - works well. Battery and motor live in the trunk (boot for the Brits) with plenty of room to spare.

2. Inflating. The whole set up is down to about 20 minutes now.

3. Sun in the eyes - life is good.

4. My little guy in the bow. He has mixed feelings about boating at this age.

5. My little family.

A couple more pics...

1. The torqeedo has enough grunt to get me across bodies of water, combined with incredible silent accuracy at low speeds for trolling or for holding the perfect position to cast in and around the weeds.


2. Had to show off my first catch in the zodiac, a 25 inch walleye. That was early afternoon...I'd been trolling for hours and still had over 60% battery life when I called it quits.
