Outcast Pac 1000 Float Tubes Pontoon Boats Review

Outcast Pac 1000


Description
With a 500 lb. capacity and 10' length, the PAC 1000 is the workhorse of the Outcast fleet. Construction, materials, valves, welded seams, etc. are the same top quality as the world's best whitewater inflatables. In spite of its large size, you can easily propel this boat with fins.

Summary:
Dave Scadden ordered one of the first Pac 1000 Outcasts for me. I fin in my float tubes, so I had something else in mind, other than rowing, for my Pac 1000. First, I custom made a rear platform to hold two batteries and a second seat for my wife. Then I custom made two angled gimbal mount supports for the front allowing ample room to enter and exit. A Minn Kota 40 lb. thrust electric motor is mounted on one side and Cannon electric downrigger - when needed, fish finder and two rod holders are mounted on the other. For added stability in the wind, I mounted a catamaran rudder on a shaft with a tiller for control. I do big lake fishing for big trout at Strawberry and Flaming Gorge, sometimes covering 30 miles in a day trolling. I would not recommend this set up for white water, but for states like Utah with annual value based property taxes on boats, it is a real winner. the whole package fits in the back of my F-350 -overkill- and assembles on the water in under ten minutes. I love this boat!

Customer Service:
Never contacted customer service. They would probably sue me for what I did to one of their fly fishing creations.

Summary:
I have owned my pac 1000 for more than a year now and have logged alot of hours on the rivers of eastern Tn. I think for the money outcast has the best product in the kickboat world hands down. Iam 6'2" at 250 lbs its hard to find a boat that would carry me comfortably dry and out of the water. It handles like a dream rowing or with fins on. I was so impressed by the use I have gotten from it I bought my wife and son a pac 800..

Customer Service:
Never had to use it, but in talking to them they seem more than willing to back their product.

Summary:
We call the Pac1000 the 4x4 and the Pac9000 the sportscar. Despite its size, I find it easy to kick around without leg strain. If I had to pick my favorite, the Pac 9000 is the standard!!! However, if i knew the water was going to be BIG, the 1000 would be the choice.

Summary:
Durable, but light weight. Great in all kinds of rivers --class IV. Great to fish from. Warning: The anchor rope doesn't fit into the cleat that's welded on to the frame. Outcast needs to fit it but they won't!
