We all know that feeling when you have an awesome weekend planned with the lads to go camping, fishing and other lakeside activities and as you get lost in your reveries, you are suddenly met with a sinking feeling of anguish. You realize that you don’t have a boat; nor, the space to even store a boat. Luckily, there is a solution for all the boat-less men out there and it’s called The GoBoat!
The GoBoat utilizes a simplistic and patented design that not only saves you a lot of space but also means that transporting it is a breeze since you simply pack it in the trunk of your car. The GoBoat is essentially made from two parts – the foldable seat which contains the integrated flooring and a ring tube for buoyancy; this makes the entire GoBoat exceptionally lightweight at only 15lbs and even easier to set up.
When you’ve reached the spot where you want to set up your GoBoat, you simply unfold the seat, place the ring into the brackets, strap the ring to the seat and then use the included high-velocity hand pump to inflate it. Of course, it wouldn’t be a boat without a motor and the GoBoat is compatible with most transom mounted trolling motors but you’ll have to purchase the motor separately. The GoBoat is for everyone including the kids and as such, it even makes for great bumper boats.
At the moment the GoBoat is busy with a Kickstarter campaign and if you jump now, you can save $300 off of the retail price with an early bird special. Check out the video below.
