"I bought my Saturn
SD330 inflatable boat in the spring or late winter 2011, through careful
research I compared it to all other inflatable boats i.e. Zodiac, Avon,
Archilles and such, but they were way out of my price range and by accident I
stumbled upon the BoatsToGo.com website. I read the reviews of other Saturn
owners, who also owned these big name brands like Zodiac and such and as they
compared their Saturn inflatable boats to those brands it seems they prefer the
Saturn much more. For me the Saturn was an affordable way to start boating, I
live in an apartment, so I have no driveway or garage to store a hard boat, this
is where Saturn came in, affordability, easy to store and quality drove me to
the Saturn. Though I wanted a much bigger boat for my family of 6, it was a
little beyond my price range.
I知 an avid fisherman, but I find it inconvenient to fish from a pier or the shore, I wanted to go where the fish was and not wait for the fish to come where I was. The previous year, my wife and I, drove down the NJ shore and fished off a pier, we did not catch anything. First the place I bought my rigs sold rigs with dull hooks and the crowd on the pier was annoying to say the least. Tangled line with other fishermen was a problem for me. Not so this year.
I first tested my new Saturn dinghy on a local reservoir, arrived at the launch site, inflated my Saturn with the High Pressure Pump that I had purchased separately and launched out into the water. I must say what a difference, I fished one section of the reservoir and did not even get a bite, moved along to another section and starting catching fish, I mounted a 55lb thrust trolling motor to my Saturn and had no problems moving from spot to spot. When I feel crowded by other boaters, I will move to a different spot with ease. This to me is a great advantage as an angler. I知 currently looking for a small outboard gas motor so that I can fish in the estuaries down the shore. My Saturn can handle up to a 15 hp outboard motor.
I知 looking forward to this Spring, I知 taking her out on a clamming trip to the lower Navesink river in Red Bank, N.J. to start my year out on the bay. Then later on when the water warms up, we will do some crabbing. My Saturn has opened up so many wonderful opportunities for me, I知 really happy with my Saturn, this boat is tough as Kevlar. And I believe that if I take care of my Saturn it will last for years to come.
The only down side to my Saturn SD330 inflatable boat is it痴 not big enough for my whole family. So to solve that problem, I would take the boys (age 12 and 14) fishing, then I would take my girls (ages 14 and 15) on another day, so everyone will have a turn on the water. Most of all when the kids are in school, my wife and I would go out on our trip. Fishing, crabbing and clamming is what we are about. Thanks to BoatsToGo.com, I致e realized a long-time dream of owning my own boat!"
