Here’s what our customers are saying …
Design fit and fabrication of this boat are good. The boat does not leak but the quality of the welds are poor.
As per our conversation we understand that you believe that the boat should be TIG welded. Based on the materials and build process we disagree and believe that warranty claims, which are virtually zero, support our choice. But thank you for your comment as knowing what others think, good and bad, keeps us on our toes and always striving to improve. We also appreciate your thoughts regarding design, fit and fabrication. We put a lot of thought and time into what we believe to be an optimal design/layout for fishermen and women and are glad that to hear that it is paying off! Tight lines ... 🙃
On Oct. 3 I drove to Kamloops from Cranbrook BC to pick up my new 9-6 Journey boat. My friend and I drove from his place in Kamloops to pick the boat up. When we arrived at Journey Industries Kelly was waiting for us to answer any questions I had about the boat. Thanks Kelly for your awesome help with everything. Kelly even helped us put the boat on for us. Greatly appreciated. Rob and I texted each other many times as I had lots of questions for him. I really appreciated Robs help with quite a few items that I was not sure about, Rob answered all my questions. He also recommended a few things for me like the infinity seating. This system is fabulous , as I got to try out the new boat on my favourite lake the next day. It was either the boat or maybe it was me I am not sure. I caught 4 fish that day with the biggest fish weighing in at 6 lbs. I did look at other boats but none of them matched the pricing or the quality of the Journey boat. Very very comfortable. Thanks again gentle men. I will keep in touch in the future. Thanks SK from Cranbrook BC
Thanks for the feedback Stephen! Glad to hear that you are happy with everything! Now please email GPS coordinates to where you were fishing ASAP! 😉 Tight lines .......
Before my purchase, I looked at every Jon style boat available, and have extensively used a Spratley in the past. After careful consideration, and in speaking with other flyfishermen in the area, I went with the Journey.
Having just taken delivery of the 11-6, I was immediately impressed with the look and style of the boat, with the floating bench seats and clean lines. During the ordering process Rob was incredibly helpful with which options would be best for me specifically. Being an avid flyfisherman himself, his knowledge of what flyfishermen are looking for in a flat bottom boat was so advantageous, and you can tell that his input in the boat design was taken into account. Any protrusions that inevitably catch fly lines are minimized, and a nice sturdy, generous front bench provides a great casting platform. I went with the IPS seat system, and the first trip I knew that was the right decision, I can place a seat on all, or even none of the benches, and anywhere from left to right. I've had the boat on the water for two days now and I'm extremely impressed. The boat handled a 9.9HP with ease and felt very solid at full speed, even with a bit of a chop, I didnt feel any twisting at all. One big thing for me was the bottom of the boat while anchored. The floor was completely solid with no "tin canning" at all when you walk around. The other nice feature is the rear seat is pushed right to the back of the boat which maximizes the space between the middle bench and the back of the boat, giving an angler lots of room. Even with the bench right at the back, it is a very comfortable seating position for driving the boat (providing you steer with your left hand like me).
One note I can't stress enough, even though this boat is specified at 11-6, don't assume it feels smaller, the layout of the boat makes it at least as roomy as other 12' boats, if not roomier. I could not be more happy with my purchase!
Thanks for taking the time to post a review Brian! It was a pleasure working with you guys to get the boat optimized for BC Interior stillwater fishing! 🙂
