I'm into my second year of owning my 9'6" Journey Boat and I still absolutely LOVE IT! The only downside, which really has nothing to do with the boat, was that I had nowhere to put my oars? They fit well acorss the benches but are in the way. I tried putting them under the seats but because of their length it's a pain to make the right angle to tuck them under. I knew something had to be done for 2019 and so before I went and started trying to figure things out for myself I talked to Journey Boats and they set me up with a preliminary trial run of oar holders that they have been working on that hold the oars in tight along each side, on the outside, of the boat. I have been using them for almost two months now and many days out on the water and all I can say is they have been everything I was hoping for! I have been able keep the oars out of my boat and out my way while fishing and have been able to minimize the clutter of junk in the boat which makes for a far more pleasant outing on the water, it makes for a far better set up and utilization of space! However, I do tend to worry that one day I could potentially lose one in the lake when pulling an oar out as they are basically just tightly fitted to hook on the sides while gravity and friction does their thing. But mine was just the 1st trial run and Rob has told me the finished product will come equipped with some sort of fastener to secure the holder in place. Just wanted to say to both Rob and Kelly thanks a ton and keep up the good work! Five Star set up for any interior Stillwater flyfisher I simply can't say enough good things about my experience and purchase with Journey, Thanks a ton Guys! Fish on!
So glad the prototypes are working for you Evan! And you are correct, the final design includes a locking mechanism to secure the holder to the boat rail. Our hope was to have these out by now but the boats have been keeping us busy lol. Hopefully not much longer! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
What started out as a conversation about the infinite seat system turned into discussions about the 11'6' journey boat. The advice provided by the staff was invaluable. We had a bunch of phone calls and emails back and forth - giving me lots of excellent information and ideas. Really, the voices of experience. The staff has your best interests at heart. Their design is pretty close to perfect and they have thought of just about everything. The materials used are thicker than everyone else and the workmanship is excellent. Now, if I can just convince my wife to let me buy it... was all ready to order one, but... But if you're looking for a job boat, this is the one. Thanks guys
I'm sure we'll see you soon Lorne, thanks for the service review!
Full enjoyed ordering and discussing options with the staff at Journey. Very knowledgeable staff. Fishing boats built by fisherman, can't ask for anything better than that !
I had an great experience adding accessories on my boats. I purchased three Infinite Position Seat Systems with two Quick Release Brackets . I also had the Dual Position (Flip) Wheel kit with pneumatic wheels that they didn't even question they just redesigned and installed great job. I also had both anchor mounts installed the finish and fit/welds were amazing. Last Note I needed it very quickly for a fishing trip I was going on and they came through days early thank you for the amazing boat.
Thanks for your review Durwin! We are happy to have been able to make the timing work for you!
The boat was a present from my wife for our 25th wedding anniversary. I absolutely love it. She did her research and bought the best. Strong, stable boat, and built to last. No more leaky unstable boats for me!
Happy Belated Birthday Jack! Thanks for your review!
I had an awesome experience adding accessories on my two boats. I purchased three Infinite Position Seat Systems with Quick Release Brackets and a seat . Also they made two custom load quides and a bracket to raise my motor height on the transom. Nice to find a Company that will make parts when you don't have a Journey Boat (but I would buy one in a heart beat.) Their seat system gives you great sight lines when traveling.
Glad to help Lawrie! Thanks for sharing your review!

Your welcome! Happy fishing Garth!
Lambert brought his boat home yesterday. He was so pleased, took pictures and brought them over to show his friends. His dad came home while Lambert was at his friends and saw his new boat. Being a long time sports fisherman, he was very impressed with Lamberts new Journey boat. He commented on how well built the boat is. Very impressed.
Thank you for your review Lambert! Enjoy your Journey!
Straight forward & to the point! Thanks for sharing, tight lines Andy! 🙂
Great boat! Even better than expected! There is a ton of room and is very comfortable. Very good customer service as well.
Thanks for your comments, Kevin. The 11'6" is all about space, stability and comfort ... sounds like mission accomplished! Enjoy your Journey!
