Rubber ducks are easy to handle, launch and you do not need a big 4x4 to tow but they are open and not women friendly.

Cabin boat anyday. Rubberducks are ok for playing around with but cannot beat the versatility of a good cabin boat.

When the weather is crappy you can still fish in the river. Try it in a rubberduck and its a cold, miserable experience.

Pontoons on a used rubberduck are always dodgy, so if you do decide to go that way just make sure they are checked thoroughly. 

I am of the older generation and always look at a duck as boat that is thrashed and lacking in good maintenance. That said I have seen some good ones on Gumtree. But then for the price you can get a good ,solid cabin boat which is suitable for the whole family.

Depends what your main activities are likely to be.

Ease of launching /towing etc ----Rubber duck

Stability in a heavy sea ----Rubber duck

Speed at sea chasing yellowtail.... rubber duck

Speed and possibilities of skiing/wakeboarding------rubber duck

Young children (and growing) --------rubber duck

General chilling out --------cabin boat

Mainly river/ estuary --------cabin boat

Night time fishing for cob -------cabin boat

Long, lazy days just cruising--------cabin boat

Just my thoughts.......look at how you see yourself using a boat. Have fun --- a well chosen boat that suits your lifestyle will become your best friend!!!

Cabin bote wat rowwe see kan vat is seker heel wat duurder as soortgelyke rubberduck. Ek scheme 'n chucky met cabin op sal die beste werk, as dit op die see ook moet gaan.

Ken nie die regte term vir 'n chucky, maar dis ons die klein visser skuitjies noem hier in valsbaai, en ons het daai ouens al op heavy rowwe weer buite die baai gesien.

My siening is, as jou boot nie rowwe see kan vat, moenie meer waag as die lagoon.

Soliede boot elke keer. Die kinders moet maar in die swembad met die lilo gaan ry as hulle op iets wil ry wat opblaas, en ek sien tot ouer mense koop nou opblaas poppe, seker ook vir die swembad want ek het nog nooit een van hulle op die see gesien nie.

Mens moet nie gerief onderskat nie. As jy gerieflik is kan jy vir 'n baie lang tydperk moeilike omstandighede trotseer, terwyl as jy ongerieflik, ongemaklik koud ens kan mens dit nie lank verduur nie. Rubber bote klasificeer nie juis onder grieflik nie, en soliede bote kan net so veilig wees.

I had both and unless you are one of the guys that live on the river, I would rather buy a duck. You can take more people with you, you have more deck space and it is in a sence the same than a walkaround boat.
