I had been thinking about purchasing a jon boat for quite some time when I contacted Rob at Journey Boats in Kamloops. I had many questions and Rob was great at getting back to me in a timely manner with detailed answers and sound advice. I was so impressed with Rob’s attention to detail and quality of service that I took the plunge almost immediately. Journey boats’ one-stop-shop provides a level of service and experience that really appeals to me. Now I can’t wait for my new boat!
Our pleasure John, thanks for the review! One shiny new Journey boat coming up ....... 🙂
I have had my 9'6 Journey for a full year now so this review is long overdue, but I felt compelled to weigh in on how much I have enjoyed this boat with the many, many times I have used it. I previously used a pontoon boat which I also enjoyed, but this boat opens up a whole new meaning of comfort and ease of use. I want to say that after meeting Rob and Kelly, I found them so accommodating when it came to setting the boat up to my style of fishing.
Rob is an accomplished fly fisher so he knows what works best. The stability of this boat is second to none, and the seat system works great. When visiting many lakes, I have had a great deal of people comment on what a great boat this is. After a year of ownership, if I had it to do over again, I would go right back and order it again.
Thanks Keith! And no worries on the review being a bit "overdue" as it has allowed you to put the Journey through the paces and therefore able to report some time tested feedback! It was a pleasure working with you and I'm sure we'll see ya on the water! 🙂
Just brought home my 9-6 Journey boat and I am very satisfied. I ordered it in the end of June and despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic, I had a brand-new boat in my possession by mid-September. The staff at Journeyboats were super helpful and professional. They answered all my questions promptly, made me aware of all the considerable options available to me, and even helped me load my boat upon completion. I highly recommend Journeyboats to anyone looking into a new boat.
Thanks Wes pleasure doing business with you! Tight lines!
Everything about this boat has exceeded my expectations. Moving from a 12' v-hull to a purpose built fly fishing platform is incredible. Way more room, far more stable and much easier to get in and out of.
Awesome! Thanks for the feedback Greg. Enjoy your Journey ... 🙂
I am continuously impressed by Journey boats and proud that they are Canadian. Their customer service is outstanding and replies to emails are mere minutes ... a unicorn in today's modern world!
Hey thanks for the feedback Ryan! Just trying to offer the same service that we'd expect ourselves. And yes you are correct, proud to be Canadians offering made in BC Canada products with a local work force! 🙂
Was new to boating and setting up a used boat, even for a small transaction of a few items i found Journey Boats responded very quickly and helped with any questions that i had. Would gladly purchase Journey products again!
Thanks Peter ... please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with! 🙂
Having purchased one and used the tree now several times I find it works great with the flexibility of moving to various positions in my boat. I’ve used the quick release for battery removal and definitely a great idea however I also just remove the whole multi functional tree at the end of the day when out camping so no worries about losing anything over night. I really like being able to keep the battery, fish finder, transducer and cable all neatly in place ready to use for the next outing. I started off using the regular scotty mount and noted it did not lock in place but was still stable enough to use when trolling. However I found a Scotty quick release mount that releases with a push button and it locks the tree in place without having to turn it like a rod holder normally is used. I love the multi functional tree set up and no loose wires connecting to my battery box like I used before.
The fact I can easily change the direction of the transducer for use on either side of my boat and on the transom makes the V1.0 a great option. A friend made a similar set up with PVC pipe but not nearly as stable for use while trolling. I’m impressed with the quality of work and design so I’m happy I purchased it.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on the Fish Finder Tree Joe! I really like the "everything in one place" thing about it too ... as well as being able to easily & quickly relocate it from one position to another in the boat when needed! Cheers from team Journey Boats! 🙂
Picked up my 11-6 last weekend and got a chance to christen it while in Kamloops. Boat was even nicer than I had hoped! Super solid, very well made and all the add-ons I had specified make it really special. The infinity seating system is a must. The boat performed like a champ on the lake. I couldn't believe how stable it was when you are standing and casting. This is a lifetime boat. Rob was great to work with and was helpful in sorting through all the options. Thanks!
Luv it when folks go right from the shop to the lake! Thanks for the review Mike it was a pleasure working on the build with you!
Great service from these guys and the products are quality. Bought the fish finder tree and tray for my boat. Both are excellent products
Thanks Brian ... we are fly fishermen ourselves and really do try to build & provide products that work for what we do! 🙂 Tight lines to you!
I recently purchased a new 9-6 boat. I couldn’t be happier, the seat system is great and the front seat make it easy for 2 guys to fish when needed. Very impressed with the stability and love the fact it fits between the wheel wells of my truck to transport. It is a very well made boat and I am glad that I went with a Journey over some of the lighter made boats, this boat will last me the rest of my fly fishing days. Thanks to Rob for his help!!
Your welcome Kris, and thank you very much for the feedback! Tight lines!
