I just purchased a Buck's Bags Southfork model from Sprtsman's Warehouse, which is a large chain similar to Cabelas or Bass Pro. The single color model was $459 and the camouflage one, which I bought, was $479. Add about twenty dollars for me for the frame painting (primer drying under the eaves of the house right now) and a dremel bit to work on the holes where the frame bolts together. Shipping might be a bit, since it weighs 70# or therabouts, and the box it came in is about four feet by two by one.

I think it will be a good boat, though. I could have got a better boat, but I see no reason to spend another five hundred or a thousand dollars just to get a few more toys, bells, or whistles.
