Are there manufacturers in South Africa of anything similar to what I have attached in the picture.

I imagine it would fly over sand banks and be perfect for the estuariers , river mouths and harbours that I like to fish.

The boat in the picture is made in the states although I would prefer not to import because of the exchange rate.

Looking forward to any replies

Renier (BFC) is currently busy with a "poling skiff". You could look it up on the "boat fishing" forum.

poolboy that guy must do more swimming than fishing. How would you move around on a vessel that narrow with out tipping. I'm guessing by slidding around whilst sitting down.
If you are after something small why not buy one of those older crocker skis and put a small 5hp motor on the transom.

That "Boat" looks like a customized standup paddle board ((wideeye))((wideeye))((wideeye))((wideeye))((wideeye))((wideeye))

LOL...Indeed mate, stand up type, see the thing with Stealth products - overpriced !!!! I have an old Stealth Kayak, bought it 2nd hand at the time. But as for their new goodies...well just too much for the chap wanting to start out.

If you have ever seen what a semi ridged duck looks like without the pontoons. Well that the same boat in the first pic.
