Inflatable Fishing Boat Review
Classic Accessories Colorado Boat

 

My Review of the Classic Accessories Colorado Boat.

If you’re like me, there are those spots you would love to fish that are just out of reach from casting from the shore. You imagine that 8lb mossy back bass right under the branch in the water on the island about 10 yards beyond your cast. That is why I decided to write this Inflatable Fishing Boat Review.

I was right on the verge of purchasing this boat when my cousin found an old aluminum boat with a trailer for $175. I split the cost with him and we put several hours fixing leaks and replacing all the wood on the boat. That is the only reason I didn’t go with the Classic Boat IIAccessories Colorado Boat. Had I not owned a truck to haul the aluminum boat I would have opted for this inflatable.

 

It is easy to slip into mission creep when looking for a boat to hit those spots that are keeping you awake at night because you can’t reach them. You start thinking about going 5 miles up the river or hitting the channel marker on the other side of the bay. The problem is to get a new boat to do this you’re in the $2,500+ price range. If your disposable funds are limited, keep it simple. Besides, there are many fishing advantages with an inflatable boat over a more expensive one.

At $499 the Classic Accessories Colorado Boat is an excellent alternative to a more expensive option. If it were me and I had a Boat IIIchoice of fishing the hard to reach spots now or wait until I could save big bucks for a full size boat, I would jump on the Colorado Boat.

Boat IV

Cons

  • Not very maneuverable which is a side affect of its solid stability design
  • A couple reviews reflect a leaky valve or leaky bladder. Easily replaceable though
  • Must be careful if fishing where there are oyster beds, oysters and inflated things are not a good match

  1. As long as this Colorado Boat is stable, I see great value in it. As opposed to a classic boat that you need a trailer to cart around, you can simply deflate it and transfer in your car. At $499, this boat seems like a steal when a new boat will typically run into the thousands of dollars range. How long does it normally take to inflate and get ready to go once you get to your destination?

  2. I really love the lay out of your page and the presentation. Neat and right to the point. I also love the product that you blogged about. Boy I love to fish.

    Thanks,

  3. Hi there!

    That’s a great review – I think that the best feature of the Colorado boat is that you don’t need a trailer. That’s perfect if you want to get away quickly for a weekend’s fishing without any hassle.

    I think that there’s always a trade off between sturdiness and maneuverability and it looks like the Colorado has a great balance between these two factors.

    Thanks!

    1. I agree John, it is a handy boat to own. The more I think of it, I really need the Colorado boat as well as my aluminum john boat. Come pay day I’m going to give it careful consideration.

      At my age, the sturdiness is a must, just getting to old to worry about dragging a boat back to shore.

      Thanks for the comment and take care.

  4. Very interesting thoughts on inflatable boats. It has always been my fear that I would be as far from my launching place as I meant to go when I sink a bunch of treble hooks into it. The portability of it should outweigh that worry though.

    1. I share your concern to some degree. I remember when I was a kid my cousin and I ran a trot line in a cheap rubber raft. We were after catfish and soft shell turtles. I don’t think I have to tell you what happened. Soft shell turtle claws go right through a rubber raft:) These pontoons boats are pretty tough though, they are made to go over class I rapids so they can handle some abuse.

  5. Hello Mark, this is beautiful review on a beautiful inflatable boat. Seriously, it is beautiful boat I think any person that is into fishing should acquire. Thanks for the review.
