Here’s what our customers are saying …
Sitting here on the lake cronimet fishing in my new 11-6 Journey. It is day 5 on the boat and I know I made the right choice. Moved down from a larger Lund 17 Crossover fish and ski boat. While the Lund was great it was just way too big for fly fishing lakes.
Went with the 11-6 to ensure that I had the room I wanted. When alone my junk can be well out of my way and I have two large casting areas. When with my wife she has lots of room to read without me worrying about hitting her with something as I move around.
The seating system is great. I was worried that the seats might flip up too easily but that is not an issue. Premium seat upgrade was worth the money.
Outfitted with anchor mounts in each corner and four rod mounts mid boat. Dropping anchor where I want to be is easy and once down the boat does not move. Can't say that about my bigger Lund, it was a sail and dragged the anchors around.
Put a 9.9 Tohatsu on the 11-6. Gets on plane easily with my wife up front. With only me on board I need to move my battery up front. Once on plane it moves along at 1/4 throttle.
Finally, the boat on the Karavan trailer tows easily and takes a fraction of the area my bigger Lund did in the garage. This may seem minor but it’s letting my wife park back in the garage again!
Great fly fishing platform. Two thumbs up.
Thanks so much for the review Don! Hope you're catching fish in between the key strokes! 🙂 Glad you're digging the boat, it was a pleasure working with you ...
After a few weeks in my 9-6 I am happy to say this boat is amazing and has exceeded my expectations. The seat layout is brilliant with lots of room for 2 anglers, easily as much as a 12 foot Spratley. Very stable and moves along nicely with my 8 hp Yamaha 4-stroke. The accessories are great, I magnetized the tackle tray and it is perfect for the current flies and tools etc. The anchor systems are great and the infinite seat mounts make configuring the boat for 1 or 2 anglers happen in 10 seconds. Took my bro-in law out and he found it more comfortable than his 14 ft tin boat. He is now ordering his own 9-6. Excellent build quality with several comments on the fine welding job. Great design and lifetime quality. Very much worth the wait, just get one!
Appreciate the review, Parker! Ultimately we are fishermen and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have been able to incorporate accessory/layout concepts that actually make sense for fishermen! And to hear that it is appreciated by other fishermen is icing on the cake! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Tight lines and cheers to many years enjoying the Journey ... 🙂
Picked up my boats Friday and took it to the cabin and enjoyed the 8 mile boat ride there, its maiden voyage.....plus all my gear. The Journey crew had this boat finished just in time for our trip. Its a very nice sturdy boat that will be used primarily for transport of "stuff" and occasionally for fishing!! Thanks to Rob and the team at Journey!!
You're very welcome Bruce! Your Journey will make a great work horse, and an even better fishing platform so don't forget to take a break once in a while eh! 😉 Thanks for taking the time to drop us a few words. Cheers to many years of work/fish Journey fun .......
