Are you looking for a folding boat? These days who isn’t? Imagine a boat that folds flat for storage and transport but assembles ready for the water in a matter of minutes. Well that is exactly what a Porta-Bote does. No need for a lot of storage space for your boat, or a big truck to tow it to the water. Just unfold it, load your gear and away you go. When you are done, fold it up and stick it in your shed or even under your camp.

The following video shows how easy it is to set up a Porta-Bote. This is a 14-foot Porta-Bote using a 6 horsepower Nissan Outboard motor (short shaft) and a Minn Kota electric trolling motor (40lb thrust).

You can also add a pair of ‘transport wheels’ as shown in the video to making getting it in and out of the water even easier.
