How Well Does It Perform as a Rowboat?
With an Electric Outboard?
Because the hull is so light (you’re not fighting 300 pounds [136kg] of hull weight), Porta-Bote is a delight to row. The fact that the bow has a “Deep V” Entry-Level Design also gives you an added advantage. You’re not pushing very much water. It’s a lot like “gliding”.

Who Says Rowing Is “Hard Work” (yawn)?
Rowing is great exercise for the whole family!
You have the same advantages when you use an electric outboard. Ultra-lightweight hull plus “Deep V” bow.Just another advantage you have over using an INEFFICIENT inflatable or a heavy aluminum or fiberglass boat.
When through boating, hang it from the ceiling in your garage
