for about $500 you could git in to one of these..
from $250 to $1000+ you could git a inflatable, heres one of the high dolloar ones
for $500+ YOU CAN GIT A basic canoe
or try a package deal too like this for 3,000+
or this for $2,000+
this one below is $4,000 + extras but the same style made by BassTraker goes for $9,000+ in the basspro mag, I'm not sure of the diffrents but for half the price i'm sure some of us could live with it!
