T.E. Lewis throws hook, line and sinker, with this great introduction to personal pontoon boating. This is a must have for anyone expanding there adventurous lifestyle to rivers lakes and streams by way of the personal pontoon boat. Even as an experienced floater, I was able to take valuable information from this book and use it in real life scenarios!!
I would like to give "Float Smart" a Five Star rating. This book has proved invaluable, allowing me success and safety on the river and to enjoy the outdoors armed with knowledge that I otherwise would not have known. Anyone considering on entering this method of river navigation and fishing in an inflatable pontoon boat should read this book first. The author brings together the inherent hazards of this sport and offers tips, suggestions and recommendations on how to overcome them and packs them neatly in this guide. Although all sections in the book provide useful information, in particular, I found the sections addressing Potential Hazards, Gear and Oar Marking most useful to me. To supplement the book, if you have the opportunity, I would recommend that you attend one of the authors "Float Smart Workshops" To my knowledge, this guide is the only publication of it's kind out there...to enjoy many years of safe and enjoyable inflatable pontoon boating and the great outdoors...give it a read...
