The reason I am looking at a pontoon is the added stability factor, that's all. But I do not want to install a trolley motor or any motor of any sort on the pontoon or Hobie as that means getting insurance and registration etc. on it right? My budget went up from about $500 originally for a kayak to now about $1200, and this would be all in, including a PDF and/or Paddle.
Any insight would be appreciated.
