Remote area access with a ARGO ?
« on: Sat 17 Jun 07:30 2017 »
Well I ve come to the conclusion my life won t be complete until I get an ARGO , I have a vision of meandering along remote coastlines crossing rivers and accessing untouched fishing destinations , plenty try do it with Quads and float them accross but a ARGO seems to be the perfect tool for the job

anyone have experience with them ?

Looks like they would be ok if it was calm enough. I don't know if I'd be doing it as those remote places have the most bitey things in the water that would like a piece of you for dinner and there's not a lot of free board on those things. Also don't think there that quick once in the water look at what this bloke has done with a small out board on one.
Looking forward to the next trip

They look capable enough and not really much too them to break but maybe I m a sucker for good advertising :) , I was thinking of towing a tinny and having the outboard on the argo for wider crossings

I might post it up on the All4Adventure FB page those guys might run with the idea and do the test work for me  :)

Not a boat but I reckon one of these would be great:

You've got to love the Russians no bs way of approaching things. NASA spent billions on a ink biro that would work in zero gravity to write upside down .... The Russians just used pencils.
Looking forward to the next trip
