This is my recent reviewed on the used of this Colorado XT Pontoon Boat, my order came in on late Thursday night and I am so excited to open it an read all the safety warning throught the manuel. The first available Saturday I took it out to Lake Murray in San Diego I had alot of fun with it. It handle very well, I caught my first 3,8 large mouth bass with it. Upon comming toward the on comming fast boat this pontoon handles very well, at first I would expect it to rock back and forth alot but it didn't. It just swade to the side and balance out against the on comming wave. Over all I would give this boat a 5 star. The only dislike about this product from classic accessories, for the amount of money that we spend. Classic Accessories can't even provide a nice storage case especially to protect the the pontoon blader it self.

Bang For Your Buck
This is a great product .... especially for price!
I had looked at this for the past 3 years wondering if I would really use it. This year, I got it and LOVE IT. Just came off the Spring River for a Fathers Day weekend and limited out each fishing session I enjoyed. The Colorado XT has everything you need within arms reach. From preparing flys to reeling the fish in & netting them, there's no strain here. I did learn a few things while using the boat for the first time. #1. Purchase a swivel for the seat so you can turnaround easier to get to things you have stored behind you. #2. Purchase an air gauge so you can easily monitor air pressure in pontoons. In direct sun, it's easy to inflate early in the morning & let air out during the day as the temps rise. #3. If fishing in current, it might be best to use lead in your weigh bag or to purchase a small hook anchor. I did a little bit of sliding on the bottom with my weight bag until I put alot more weight in the bag. I could save on weight & get a hook anchor. #4. Make sure you put the pin in when storing the wheel in it's holder while floating.. I learned to lock it in after I saw it floating past me. They provide the pin on an elastic cord.. I just didn't use it at first. I do now. #6. Approx 500 people floating past me on the river LOVED this thing... Everybody wanted one. #7. Do a Dry Run of putting the boat together. After the first time.. it's a breeze. The 1st time took longer as everything is new, tight and unknown. #9. Storage is easy. I kept the box mine came in & use it in a single bay of the basement in my motorcoach. #10. If you're wondering if the wheel is worth it... You can bet it is.. It makes getting to and out of the water much easier. By the time you load this boat up, it's well over 100 lbs. The wheel gives you the control you need.
My second Colorado XT...
I purchased one of the XT's about two years ago and have only had it out 1/2 dozen times, but with no problems whatsoever. I've read other reviews that there have been float/inner bladder issues, but not on mine. Had to buy another one so the wife won't feel left out. Good construction, has tons of gear storage. I recommend getting a low pressure (0-5lb) gauge to adjust pressures on floats as they will expand as the day heats up. Classic Accessories has made a very good product in my opinion. Spare parts can be purchased from an outfit called CoverBonanza.com. I needed an extra pole holder and transom mount for an electric motor. The existing mount holds my fish finder.
This product is the best I've ever owned
I have owned many pontoons from the cheapest to the most expensive and this is by far the easiest to put together and on the river it handles like a dream.lots of pockets to put your gear in, the best frame I've seen yet, great anker system, haven't used the trolling motor yet but this pontoon is already set up for it.i weigh around 275 and can carry any gear I need and still go threw less than a foot of water and not drag bottom.i would highly recommend this pontoon to anyone great product
Love this boat
I took my new Colorado XT on its maiden voyage today on the Monocacy River in Maryland. I broke the boat down slightly and it fit into my Honda Element, and reassembled in less than 10 minutes. The boat handled great, and I did have to adjust my seat position to find my personal center of gravity. I brought my fishing rod along and everything I needed was within reach. There was more than enough cargo capacity. A number of people on the river commented about how cool the boat was. I can't say enough about how much I loved using it. If I had to improve upon one thing, I'd say the inflation mechanism. Closing the valve will definitely take practice, as it loses air pretty quickly.
