Hello all I wanted to introduce myself. I'm Charlaine I hail from Riverside Rhode Island and am somewhere in my 30's. Having spent most of my adult life as a soldier I am finally home for good and being disabled,I have a large amount of idle time on my hands. I'm and Avid Fly Fisher and Fly tier as well as model rocketry and many other hobbies. I spend much pf my days fishing in the middle of a pond where i do not need to deal with people up close, this is done in a Browning Aggressor Float tube, witch is sadly dieing from poor construction. Though I do have the skills to repair it if i can get the fabric.
I worked in the law enforcement field as well as the field of I.T and computer repair for most of my military and nonmilitary life.
I will try my best to not ask to many dumb questions but I will try to ask questions that will help others to come in time.
Thank you all for your time and this great site.

Welcome,

I also tie and fly fish but since joining the site I have been steered from the true path of fishing and have been chucking bait with the rest of these ruffians Rolling Eyes Look forward to talking to you!!

Welcome from Rhode Island and thank you for your service. Sorry you had so many problems with your first float tube. I wish you luck with your next tube, and please ask all the questions you want.
Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.

well it is something you have to get used to i use it a lot but i have my flipper to . it does seem to move fast and more control with my feet up and if i am towing someone,the person acts like a kite when you add a tale to it and it keeps me straight for longer time. by myself it a little tricky but i am all over the harbors check everyone out and what they are doing sometime i am just cruising around cause it fun (maybe i should pay more attention to fishing lol)
if you have any question just ask and i will help out as much as possible
p.s. foregive my spelling and typing

with the aggressor theirs plenty of room and its plenty stable leaning over it as well. i wonder is the scooter can be mounted to some sort of bracket system. hmmm have to get one first.

ed that's what I'm thinking of doing after i get my disability. its 125 for the mount setup and if I'm lucky 150 for the trolling motor and not sure for the deep cell battery

i was thinking like a grip that could attach to the stabilizer bar like a trolling motor but not be perminate just when youre out in the pond or lake. or a means to attach it to your knees and have a grip or something to activate it
