1 Cumberland or Ponderay ? on Sat Aug 24, 2013 2:41 pm

Hey guys new member here from Virginia trying to decide on a float to keep stored in my truck camper when traveling for fishing and just tooling around. It will not be my primary boat as I have a 19' Arima for salt and a 14 Starcraft for fresh and I also have an Achilles inflatable that I use with a Minn Kota electric. I guess I am a little boat crazy. Anyway sometimes the wife and daughter scream about why do I always have to take a boat on a trailer on vacation. So I have room under my daughters bed in the truck camper for a float and waders and fins etc. Gotta get my fix somehow.
Well I have been lurking and studying and it comes down to the Cumberland that I know you guys love @$198 or Ponderay @ Coverbonanza @ $140 less I guess the 15% discount. Can't get much information on the Ponderay it looks good for the money but don't know about the quality. Any help would be appreciated. Also think I will call Coverbonanza and ask the guy there his opinion since they sell both but I believe are out of the Cumberland for a while. Will post after I buy something and try it out. May be a fishing report. Thanks Jimmie

Welcome to the site ya you sound boat crazy but there is nothing wrong with that right. I vote for the cumberland the other is nice but seems bulky and the cumberland has been proven top quality again and again. Good luck i dont think you can go wrong either way.

Thanks for the quick responses already. I should add I am 6'1" and weigh about 240 so I want a high capacity tube. Does the foam seat really use much storage space vs inflatable seats?

They fold up nicely and can be stored in a duffle type bag along with fins, booties, etc.  I have a Cumberland and at 6' and 255, it keeps me high and dry.  They are a well made tube.

Well the big brown truck showed up as scheduled today and sweeeeet the only thing better than getting a new toy delivered is it showed up while the wife was gone. Materials look good will post a full review after I inflate it and take it for a test run.
